Swiss food packaging company Tetra Pak has launched its new plant management service, Tetra Pak Plant Secure, which is set to deliver profitability improvements for customers.

The company claims that its new service has the potential to deliver profitability improvements through a detailed audit of all the equipment and systems across the customer’s value chain.

Tetra Pak Group president and CEO Dennis Jonsson 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.”

The company added that by combining the analysis with its data on food manufacturing, specialists will be able to identify opportunities and implement improvements across the customer’s entire operation.

Tetra Pak Plant Secure has been launched in Europe and the Americas on a pilot basis.

A dairy producer in America is said to have reduced 10% in operational costs during the first year of implementation.

Currently, the company is rolling out its Tetra Pak Plant Secure service to all food and beverage companies worldwide.

In April last year, the company adopted Microsoft HoloLens in order to speed-up issue resolution for food manufacturers and to protect them against risks to food safety and quality.

Tetra Pak offers a wide range of processing and packaging technologies for ice cream, cheese, fruit, vegetables and pet food products.
