Since 1979 when it first came to China, Tetra Pak has always been following a business philosophy of “growing with Chinese customers”. Committed to “making food safe and available, everywhere”, it continuously introduces its state-of-the-art technologies and equipment and comprehensive value-added services into China, playing a significant role in the development of China’s liquid food industry.
Tetra Pak was established in 1951 in Sweden. With its innovative tetrahedron-shaped cartons for packaging milk, which were highly hygienic and efficient in raw materials consumption, Tetra Pak had been one of the first suppliers to provide carton packaging solutions for liquid milk at that time. Through constant improvement and innovation, Tetra Pak has become a major supplier of packaging systems for milk, juice, beverages, and many other food products. In 1991, it expanded its product portfolio into liquid food processing equipment, plant engineering, and cheese manufacturing equipment. Today, Tetra Pak is a worldwide system provider, well-positioned to deliver integrated solutions in food processing, packaging and distribution, as well as value-added services including technical counsel and training, new product development and positioning, and consumer education.
Tetra Pak has 40 market companies around the globe, and operates 43 production plants for packaging materials and 11 factories for machine assembly. It has 21,812 employees and achieved in 2010 net sales of EUR 9.980 billion. Tetra Pak products are sold in more than 170 countries. In 2010, the company delivered 158.0 billion packages for 74.0 billion liters of liquid food products to consumers in the world.
The company’s tenet, A Package Should Save More Than It Costs, was set by the founder of Tetra Pak, Dr. Ruben Rausing, at the very beginning of the company in an effort to keep the consumption of raw materials and energy during the manufacturing and distribution phases to the lowest level. Tetra Pak persistently follows a “4R” principle in its operations and environment initiatives – Renewing, Reducing, Recycling, and Responsibly, minimizing its impacts to the environment. It has developed environmental performance indicators (EPI) to monitor and set improvement targets for performance in key areas.
In China, Tetra Pak has been an active participant in the fast growing dairy and beverage industry. In order to be a strong supporter to Chinese customers, Tetra Pak has invested a total of RMB 3.35 billion in China to reinforce its local manufacturing and technical capabilities. Today, Tetra Pak employs more than 1,800 people in China, operating 10 offices in major cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. It has four world-class converting plants in Beijing, Kunshan, Foshan, and Hohhot, with a total production capacity expected to reach 60 billion packs by the end of 2012 in China, large enough to meet or even exceed customers’ fast growing demands. It also has a technology center in Pudong, Shanghai, and a design conversion center in Beijing, which is Tetra Pak’s most advanced in the world.
