“Roughly half of the world's ice cream is produced with the help of Tetra Pak equipment, and this is one of the most exciting categories for us today. With manufacturers looking for partners who can bring in end-to-end support, especially market insights from other parts of the world while offering solutions that meet their specific local needs, Tetra Pak is strongly positioned to support the industry from ideation on the formulation to automation, filling and all the other aspects of the production process,” says Cassio Simoes, managing director, Tetra Pak South Asia.
Ice cream ranges from offerings with a healthier profile that is low in fat and carb content to indulgent products higher in fat, often including ingredients such as chocolate, nuts, and syrups. Tetra Pak is the world-leading, single-source manufacturer and supplier of complete solutions, equipment, and consumables for processing and packaging ice cream. The full range of Tetra Pak’s ice cream equipment covers raw material storage through mix preparation to continuous freezing and inclusion systems. Our production solutions include extrusion, molding, filling, hardening, and packaging stick products, cups, cones, sandwiches, cakes, and family packs.
“To succeed in the ice-cream market, manufacturers need to be able to quickly respond to changing consumer trends. For instance, including food pieces such as chocolate, candy, nut, and cake pieces is a growing trend, and so is the adoption of more intricate designs such as swirls, multiple coating layers, and sophisticated shapes. Our portfolio today is geared to respond to the dynamic needs of the market, and we are proud to be truly a one-stop solution for ice-creams,” Cassio adds.
Visitors can meet the Tetra Pak team at Booth E3 at Biswa Bangla Prangan Milan Mela, Kolkata, from Sept 13 to 15.
