Tetra Pak net sales reach €10.36 billion

26 March 2012

Tetra Pak has announced net sales of €10.36 billion in 2011—up five percent from 2010 in comparable terms

The company’s Packaging Solutions businesses achieved net sales of €9.2 billion for the year, three percent higher (comparable terms) than in 2010, driven by strong growth in South and Southeast Asia, Central and South America, China and Sub-Sahara Africa.

Sales from Processing Solutions climbed almost 23 percent year over year (comparable terms) to €1.2 billion, with double-digit growth in North America, China, South and Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and Oceania and the entire European region.

“Thanks to our long-time focus on developing products and services that not only address today’s needs, but also anticipate the needs of the future, we saw continued growth in 2011, despite widespread economic uncertainty and an increasingly competitive environment,“ said Tetra Pak President and CEO Dennis Jönsson.

“We are committed to supporting our customers, retailers and suppliers over the long term and will continue to invest in products, services and facilities that look beyond tomorrow, while also making sure we deliver what is needed today,“ he said.

The year saw the launch of a number of new products and features by Tetra Pak, from within both Processing Solutions and Packaging Solutions, developed in response to specific demands around operational efficiency, environmental performance, convenience or differentiation. Within Processing Solutions, these included:

Tetra Albrix sugar dissolving unit, with higher operational efficiency and a modular design which brings lower cost, improved environmental performance as well as easier expansion and upgrades

Tetra Tebel Blockformer, the next generation cheddar cheese production unit, which reduces costs and minimizes product loss

Tetra Alcip, intelligent cleaning-in-place system featuring a new automation platform and uncompromising levels of food safety at lower environmental and operating cost

PlantMaster traceability solution developed with Brazilian food cooperative Aurora to increase production efficiency and add brand value.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
