We commit to making food safe and available, everywhere
We work for and with our customers to provide preferred processing and packaging solutions for food. We apply our commitment to innovation, our understanding of consumer needs and our relationships with suppliers to deliver these solutions, wherever and whenever food is consumed.
We believe in responsible industry leadership, creating profitable growth in harmony with environmental sustainability and good corporate citizenship.
Since operations began in 1952, the Tetra Pak brand has grown to become a powerful global asset, delivering solid value to both our company and our customers.
Our brand is founded on a promise: PROTECT WHAT’S GOOD. At its core, that’s about protecting food … which has long been the very heart of our business agenda. But it goes further; it is also about protecting people: our employees, the communities in which we operate, and society as a whole. And it is about protecting futures; by developing the products and services that will support the future growth of our customers; by acting and operating in ways that best protect the future of our planet; and by delivering outstanding performance at lower comparable cost than anyone else in the industry, to ensure the future success of Tetra Pak.
There are four values that guide the company’s 23,500-plus employees in their day-to-day business:
We ensure we add value and inspire our customers because we recognise that they come to us by choice. We dare to lead with a focus beyond tomorrow and take opportunities to learn and grow.
We do not compromise on quality. We relentlessly drive for better, fit-for-purpose solutions and breakthrough innovations.
We have the freedom to take the initiative and act decisively in the best interests of Tetra Pak and our customers. We take responsibility for our actions and contribute to the communities in which we operate.
We respect and rely on one another and all our stakeholders for exceptional results. We enjoy working together and celebrating our achievements.
Tetra Laval Food for Development drives development of the entire dairy and food value chain through cooperation with customers, governments, development agencies, funding organisations and NGOs all over the world. In specific, we help governments worldwide to implement school milk and school feeding programmes to ensure that children get access to safe food and education.
We also work with dairy farming development, helping local dairy processors to access more and better locally produced milk while helping small holder farmers to move from subsistence farming to running milk production as a profitable business.
In 2015, more than 70 million children in almost 60 countries have regularly received milk or other nutritious drinks in Tetra Pak packages while at school. And this number continues to grow, as countries across the globe start or expand their school-feeding programmes.
Such programmes have a considerable impact on the local community and economy. Not only do they improve the health and learning capabilities of children, they often act as a catalyst for agricultural and economic development.
We are a signatory of the UN Global Compact, which brings together companies, UN agencies, labour and civil society to support ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. We also cooperate with NGOs such as WWF and FSC, and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN). In 2015, we signed the Paris Pledge for Action at COP21, reinforcing the company’s long-standing commitment to take the initiative in finding ways to help tackle climate change.
