Tetra Pak has invested €25m in its packaging material plant in Turkey

The aseptic carton firm said that its plant technology upgrade in Izmir enables local production and export of its packages, including Tetra Gemina Aseptic and Tetra Prisma Aseptic.

It has also launched a new laminator at its factory in Izmir, Turkey, to mark its fortieth year of operations in the country.

According to Tetra Pak, the new VT laminator will increase production capacity by 20%, delivering new packages with shorter lead time to customers in the Turkey and Caucasus, and enabling export to the region.

The new laminator, which begins production in January 2013, boosts production capacity from five billion packs to approximately six billion. It is capable of laminating all types and sizes of Tetra Pak packages, including Tetra PrismaAseptic, TetraGemina Aseptic and Tetra Brik Aseptic packages with Helicap caps.

Tetra Pak Turkey and Caucasus managing director Francis Goodenday said: “In an increasingly competitive world, Tetra Pak recognizes the need to offer our customers the very best products, technology and service.

“This investment will enable us to meet our customers’ needs in a continuously growing, dynamic market by providing them with faster lead times, innovative packages and all the advantages of local supply and support.”

Commenting on 40 years of successful partnership in Turkey, Goodenday added: “We have grown with our customers, and together we have stayed true to the ambition of providing quality and food safety. Beyond business success, we have also made great strides in promoting healthy milk together with our customers.”
