Tetra Pak facts


The food and beverage industry is continuously evolving to meet the ever-changing preferences and needs of consumers. Understanding consumer behaviour is essential for remaining competitive in a highly challenging market. .

Liquid Dairy Products

White milk is expected to annually grow by 2.2 per cent around the world until 2027, with Central and East Asia accounting for half of the global demand. Global demand for flavoured milk will grow by 1.7 per cent annually by 2027, even though volumes are small compared to white milk.

Plant-based products

The growing demand for plant-based and alternative protein sources, driven by the consumption of rice, nuts, grains and seed-based beverages, will continue with an annual growth forecast of 1.5 per cent until 2027.

Ready-to-drink tea and coffee

Increasing on-the-go consumption and the innovation of trendy tea and coffee shops are driving the category, along with eco-friendly and indulgence product innovation. Coffee is driving the category with a 2.1 per cent annual growth forecast until 2027.

Culinary categories

The culinary categories landscape is rapidly diversifying with pressures on brand owners to innovate to meet the demand for convenient food options and address affordability. Annual growth is expected of 1.6 per cent until 2025.

Juices and nectars

Reducing sugar content remains the main priority in the category although there is also a shift towards functional juices and new consumption occasions. The category slightly contracted in 2023.

Ice cream

Ice cream consumption is estimated to annually grow by 1.7 per cent until 2027. Despite concerns over high-sugar intake, flavour remains the driving force for category development.

Specialized nutrition

High protein and active nutrition provide opportunities to drive category growth and make it more mainstream. Baby and toddler drinks are expected to grow annually by 2.6 per cent until 2027.


Unleashing the power of new food

Imagine if organisms and cells invisible to the naked eye could help solve some of humanity’s biggest challenges. Tetra Pak is at the forefront of developing processing solutions and equipment to produce new food in a more sustainable and efficient manner.

Tetra Pak is already a pioneer in precision fermentation, a technology where microorganisms can be programmed to produce specific fats or proteins. The company is also innovating with biomass fermentation, which involves cultivating protein-rich microorganisms, such as fungi, to be used as the basis for food products. The next step is to scale up production to harvest larger volumes while reducing production costs to make food more affordable for consumers. Collaboration with public, private and academic partners is essential to overcome challenges and bring complete, end-to-end solutions to market.

“New food is about producing essential ingredients, such as proteins and fats, in a more sustainable and efficient manner – to address the need for increased food supply while reducing environmental and climate impact,” said Ida Svensson, Transformation Manager New Food at Tetra Pak. “In the future, we expect that alternative proteins will be produced at scale by cultivating meat in industrial plants and extracting protein from cultured insects. Welcome to the exciting world of new food!”
