04 Dec 2017 --- Tetra Pak has launched Intelligent Customisation, an industry-first modular portfolio of heating systems that offers tailor-made processing solutions for food and beverage manufacturers. 

The modules, which are based on the company’s leading technologies in dairy, beverages and prepared food processing, can be combined in any number of configurations, allowing every heating solution to be customized to meet the specific needs of each individual customer.

Ola Elmqvist, Vice President Business Unit Liquid Food at Tetra Pak says: “With our new modular portfolio we are working with the customer in a completely collaborative way. This is crucial since every customer has increasingly different challenges and priorities, that often change over time.”

“We start with detailed discussions about their business, such as the products they produce, their production process, running time, utility costs, and their short-term, as well as long-term goals. With this deep understanding, we are then able to provide fully customized heating solutions that bring value to their business,” Elmqvist explains.

Tetra Pak has completed trials of the new modular portfolio with customers in Europe and Russia.

Alexander Belyanov, the Director of OJSC Bogdanovich GMZ says: “We think the new Tetra Pak Indirect UHT unit for dairy applications is a significant Innovation. Following detailed discussions from the beginning on the concept development and new area design, Tetra Pak was able to provide us with a new processing line that was tailor-made to our needs to improve plant performance. The new module approach was more convenient in terms of installation, efficiency and performance, plus, all the service media connections are mounted at the same place, making it more accessible and practical.” 

This new heating portfolio means Tetra Pak can offer full flexibility and upgradability that supports a customer’s current and future needs. For instance, the solutions can be upgraded to support a customer’s product expansion from milk and cream, to beverages with particles, or from baby food purée to a wider range of prepared food products.
