Tetra Laval touches the lives of people around the world in many positive ways. Our three industry groups – Tetra Pak, DeLaval and Sidel – provide innovative systems that improve the efficiency, quality and safety of food processing and packaging.
Tetra Pak completed the acquisition of Obram S.A., a leading Polish provider of cheese technology solutions and equipment in Poland, Russia, Belarus and many other parts of Eastern Europe. Since it was established in 1976, Obram has built a strong reputation for delivering high-quality production solutions for fresh cheeses, cottage cheese and semi-hard cheese applications. Its addition broadens our capability in the rapidly-expanding cheese sector.

DeLaval pioneered another advancement in animal health and welfare with our innovative OceanBlu™ Pre and Post Dip and OceanBlu™ Barrier. OceanBlu™ increases the effectiveness of germicidal action through our patent-pending GlyTec™ technology, based on glycolic acid, a natural milk component. This proprietary non-iodine formulation improves udder hygiene and milk quality. OceanBlu™ antibacterial agents combine with skin conditioners to provide a reliable and powerful means of mastitis control. The barrier provides continued disinfection between milkings, an additional protection which can reduce veterinary costs.

Argentina loves its peas; they account for close to 60% of total vegetable sales there. In 2015 Tetra Recart increased its share of this massive market to 8%. A major marketing campaign, spurred consumer interest in the modern-day alternative to metal cans. The recyclable carton, which is just one-third the weight of a can, is extremely sturdy and very easy to open. And retailers like it because it requires 30-40% less shelf space than a can or a glass jar, as well as being easier to handle.

In choosing to install the first Sidel Combi Predis™ FMa Capdis™ on the island, Taiwan Hon Chuan Enterprise has gained further advantages in the fiercely competitive Taiwanese/Chinese marketplace. It is an aseptic blow-fill-cap solution with dry decontamination of both preforms and caps. The introduction of the new line has created the capacity required to provide flexible aseptic production to meet the fast-changing tastes and demands from consumers for sensitive products. It is used for the bottling of a range of low acid to high acid beverages, such as ready-to-drink tea, milk tea and coffee.
DeLaval Clover™ liners – long available for conventional milking systems – are now available for DeLaval VMS™ – systems that permit voluntary milking. The unique clover-shaped liner barrel gently grips cow teats throughout the milking cycle, helping it stay in the proper milking position and providing excellent massage, offering the cows maximum comfort. Effects on performance are stunning: fewer incomplete milkings, higher milk production and shorter milking times. One test farm milked 290 cows a day instead of 270 – adding up to 720 litres of extra milk a day.

DeLaval VMS™ Spectra is a limited edition of DeLaval VMS™ that includes the new DeLaval body condition scoring BCS. This provides farmers with the accurate information they need to increase productivity and decrease costs through herd health management. A cow’s body condition is analysed and scored automatically with a 3D imaging camera, while the cows move. Reliable, instantaneous data allows farmers to spot DeLaval BCS deviations and change feed conditions, for example, so cows turn feed into milk and not into body fat.

PT.Hokkan has installed the first Sidel dry aseptic line in Indonesia and in doing so has expanded its production capacity as a co-packer of non-carbonated healthy soft drinks for the growing Indonesian beverage market. Sidel supplied its customer with Predis™ dry preform decontamination system which replaces wet bottle sterilisation. Sidel Predis provides 100 per cent decontamination of all preforms using hydrogen peroxide mist, removing the need for water and requiring only small amounts of chemicals. The investment follows the success of the first Sidel line installed at the company - a wet aseptic Combi line - with the two lines now working alongside each other to offer the company increased flexibility in production. PT.Hokkan Indonesia is part of the Japanese Hokkan Group and is a co-packer for the beverage industry, specialising in PET bottles of up to 500ml. The company’s bottle manufacturing facility is located in Bogor in the West Java Province of Indonesia some 50 kilometres south of Jakarta.
