Tetra Pak increases speed-to-market for prepared food manufacturers
New automated pasteuriser offers flexible processing capability by switching between hot- and ambient-filled products
Tetra Pak® (tetrapak.com) Pasteurizer PF is a new flexible, automated solution forsauces, dressings, pastes, dips, soups and other prepared food applications. Launched this month, the technology extends the company’s existing hot fill / high acid portfolio, with a machine that will switch readily between hot- and ambient-filled products.
For food manufacturers, this multiple product capability provides far greater opportunity to respond to shifts in market demand, moving from one recipe to another with just a push of a button, securing a consistent product quality.
“The user-friendly technology and level of automation incorporated within Tetra Pak Pasteurizer PF adds up to a compelling solution for a broad customer profile in the prepared food industry. A fair proportion of these are existing users of Tetra Pak equipment, for whom adopting this technology will provide opportunities to develop new revenue streams,” says Anders Yngwe Söderstjerna, manager of Tetra Pak’s centre of expertise for prepared food.
“Its competitively low cost of total ownership also positions it as the ideal point of entry system for companies that hitherto have been unable to access this market.”
Tetra Pak Pasteurizer PF can be operated either as a standalone system or integrated with other Tetra Pak equipment on a processing line. Its modular format also allows for more functions to be added in stages.
