Tetra Laval Food for Development

At Food for Development, we have since 1951 been demonstrating value to society and individuals by participating in the development of school feeding and nutrition programmes around the world.

The first school milk programme using Tetra Pak packages was introduced in Mexico in 1962 and is still reaching millions of children today. Tetra Pak’s vision, “We commit to making food safe and available, everywhere”, is the aspirational goal that drives our activities so that children around the world can have access to safe nutrition. Through our global experiences, we have seen how effective sustainable school feeding programmes programmes can be in improving nutrition and education for vulnerable groups

School Feeding Handbook provides unique insight into improving child health and education

Tetra Pak has been engaged in school feeding programmes since 1962 when Tetra Pak® packages were introduced in Mexico. Tetra Pak and Tetra Laval Food for Development have now introduced a School Feeding Handbook, which provides a unique insight into the many positive benefits that school feeding programmes bring to children and communities worldwide and how they have played a key role in improving health and education for school children. The handbook also gives many examples of best practice and impact data from various school feeding programmes.

School feeding programmes are helping to tackle the challenges of malnutrition and food insecurity at a global level – to make a measurable difference to children’s lives. More than 68 million children in 56 countries now receive milk or other fortified beverages in Tetra Pak packages in schools. Both Tetra Pak and Tetra Laval Food for Development continue to play a significant role in the field, actively supporting customers and working in collaboration with governments, UN agencies, and NGOs.

“We regularly share global best practice and provide technical assistance in the evaluation and implementation of school feeding programmes, food safety and quality controls, product development, distribution, and environmental education activities in schools,” says Rafael Fabrega, Director, Tetra Laval Food for Development.
