Tetra Pak growth despite ‘tough’ 2012

Tetra Pak has announced an increase of 4.3% in comparable net sales for 2012 compared to 2011, reaching €11.16 billion globally.

Despite what the Switzerland-headquartered corporation describes as a “tough year”, its Packaging Solutions businesses achieved net sales of €9.87 for the year, 4.2% higher (comparable terms) than in 2011, with “solid growth” in South & Southeast Asia, Central & South America, North America, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and “double digit growth” in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2012 Tetra Pak supplied more than 173 billion individual packages used by leading food and beverage companies around the world to deliver more than 77 billion litres of milk, juice, nectars and other products to consumers, according to the company.

“The economic situation is still tough, with growth slower than before, particularly in China and Brazil, our fastest growing economies,” says Tetra Pak president and CEO Dennis Jönsson.

“We’ve had to make some tough decisions over the past year to enable us to continue to invest in the development of new products, services and facilities that will enable our customers, retailers and suppliers to thrive in the years to come.”

Product launches by Tetra Pak in 2012 included: Tetra Brik Aseptic 200/250ml Edge portion packs for on-the-go consumption; Tetra Top Carton Shot with Lokka opening, a 100ml package with a tear-off opening, designed for convenience in health, energy and other dosed drinks; and Tetra Brik Aseptic 1000 Mid LightCap 24, featuring Tetra Pak’s lowest cost screw cap.

During that 12-month period, the company claims to have delivered 505 new packaging machines, 1,971processing units and 1,721 pieces of distribution equipment.
