Khaled Ismail, vice president communications, Cluster Greater Middle East and Africa, Tetra Pak tells us what’s in store for 2018 at the company.
WHAT IS YOUR LATEST PRODUCT LAUNCH?
During last year’s edition of Gulfood Manufacturing, Tetra Pak launched Tetra Fino aseptic 100 ultra MIM (Micro injection moulding), Tetra Pak high shear mixer R370-1000D and Patented Tetra Pak extrusion wheel.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?
Tetra Fino aseptic 100 ultra MIM is a new package that allows dairy and juice drinks to be produced and distributed in small carton pouches at room temperature and subsequently be turned into frozen products in shops or in a consumer’s home allowing for enhanced flexibility. The carton-based package protects against light and oxygen, preserving the freshness, nutrition and taste of the food.
Tetra Pak high shear mixer R370-1000D is a next generation high shear inline mixer that offers customers unparallelled ingredient mixing performance and lower operating costs. The new mixer can handle ingredients with up to 65% dry matter, the highest concentration for infant formula production. This cuts down the need for evaporation, another expensive step in food processing, slashing costs by up to 90%.
Lastly, the Tetra Pak extrusion wheel creates stick ice cream products with large inclusions up to 25mm. The new machine does not use the traditional cutting technology, but instead has a number of cavities on its outer surface in the same shape of the final product. With a capacity of up to 200 products per minute, the machine ensures consistent high-quality appearance of the product.
