Tetra Pak has today launched the Tetra Fino® Aseptic 100 Ultra MiM, a new package that offers customers an opportunity to produce liquid dairy and juice drinks using their existing production processes, and market them as ice creams and frozen products.
This package allows dairy and juice drinks to be produced and distributed in small carton pouches at room temperature, and subsequently turned into frozen products in shops or in a consumer’s home. This means producers can tap into global ice cream market without the need for additional investment in production equipment and chilled distribution system.
Want Want, a leading food company in China, is the first company to trial this product.
The Tetra Fino Aseptic 100 Ultra MiM package can be produced on the A1 Tetra Pak filling machine platform. With a pre-applied opening using Micro Injection Moulding technology, the package can be opened entirely by pulling the tab, making it easy for children and others to enjoy the frozen product.
The new package will be available from 2018 in the Greater Middle East, Europe and Asia.
