Swedish food processing and packaging company Tetra Pak has announced major developments to its packaging solutions portfolio.

According to the company, the developments include the Tetra Evero Aseptic One-Step Opening (OSO), the TBA/19 Retrofitability Kit for Tetra Brik Aseptic 200 and 250 Edge and the Tetra Pak A3/Speed filling machine for Tetra Prisma Aseptic for portion packs.

On the Tetra Evero Aseptic, the carton bottle for ambient white milk, the company is set to launch an OSO.

Owing to a tamper evidence ring and neck membrane that is removed by twisting the cap, the Tetra Evero Aseptic OSO offers double safety features.

As well as these safety features, the latest development enables customers to offer consumers a carton bottle that is easy to open, handle and pour from, said the company.

Tetra Pak's new TBA/19 Retrofitability Kit allows customers to change the package shape and base area on the same machine platform.

Customers with the TBA/19 filling machine for 200 Slim, 250 Base and 125 Slim will be able to retrofit their existing filling lines, enabling them to produce the new Tetra Brik Aseptic 200 and 250 Edge.

The retrofitability kit also takes less time to install compared to a new machine.

The new Tetra Pak A3/Speed filling machine, which is available for Tetra Prisma Aseptic 200 and 250 portion packs, has a maximum production capacity of 24,000 portion packs per hour.

Tetra Pak marketing and product management vice president Charles Brand said, "These developments demonstrate our focus on value-driven innovation, offering a broader packaging portfolio, increasing operational efficiency and faster speed to market, enabling our customers to respond to ever changing consumer demands."
