Tetra Pak has launched new best-practice lines for yogurt products – a suite of expert services that support a wide variety of yogurt innovations to address growing consumer demand. Leveraging more than 45 years of experience in processing and packaging solutions with good knowledge of yogurt, enabling Tetra Pak to offer support for designing processes that do not compromise on production economy or flexibility.
The best-practice lines claim to support the design of customized solutions for five types of yogurt products such as stirred, set, drinking, concentrated and ambient. These are specific sets of guidance which can be tailored to match the particular production needs of different types of yogurt.
Frederik Wellendorph, vice president – Liquid Food at Tetra Pak said, “Rapidly shifting consumer preferences and a sustained focus on health means that our customers need to be simultaneously agile, specific and consistent in their production. Using expertise gathered from more than 300 yogurt equipment installations worldwide, we can partner with customers to help them reach a new level of ‘yogurt-fluency’ and better enable business growth.”
Bruno Girão, chief executive officer of Betânia, a Brazilian company said, “By converting chilled yogurt into ambient, we can now sell our products in northeastern Brazil without having to invest in a costly chilled distribution chain. It’s an innovative approach that is helping us expand our business,”
Tetra Pak was working with Betânia on a customized processing solution at a dedicated Product Development Centre (PDC) in Monte More near Sao Paulo.
