Tetra Pak has launched Tetra Pak Plant Secure, which it describes as a “game-changing” plant management service aimed at driving profitability improvements for its customers.

The service starts with a detailed audit of all the equipment and systems across the customer’s value chain. This analysis, combined with Tetra Pak’s industry knowledge and benchmark data on food manufacturing, is said to enable Tetra Pak specialists to identify opportunities and implement improvements across the customer’s entire operation.
Tetra Pak Plant Secure contracts come with targets around operational expenditure reduction and capital expenditure optimisation.
Dennis Jönsson, CEO of Tetra Pak Group, said: “Our investment in Industry 4.0 technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation and data velocity has enabled us to better support our customers in the digital era. Tetra Pak Plant Secure is a great example of how we use new technology to broaden our perspective and deliver bottom-line benefits for our customers.”
Pilot projects have already been carried out in the Americas and in Europe and Tetra Pak said an Americas-based dairy producer reduced operational costs by more than 10% in the first year of implementation of the service, and the project continues to deliver further savings.
The announcement follows on from Tetra Pak’s introduction last year of a suite of new services for its customers, focusing on improving the ability to predict machine errors, accelerating response times, and giving the customer faster and more direct access to Tetra Pak’s expertise.
Powered by Microsoft technology, the digital solutions aim to boost manufacturers’ efficiency, cut costs, ensure food safety, and ultimately drive their businesses forward, Tetra Pak said.
