Milk stands out among the top five foods that Chileans buy in supermarkets. To guarantee safe consumption, Tetra Pak developed superior packaging that maintains its properties and freshness.
Millions of Chileans prefer dairy products daily for breakfast, as a snack between meals, or as a snack for schoolchildren. Milk is a highly nutritious and complete food that provides a variety of health benefits. It is a rich source of calcium, protein, vitamins and minerals required for optimal growth and development of the body. Regular consumption of milk helps build strong bones, helps maintain good dental health, supports muscle function and contributes to a healthy immune system.
According to ODEPA (Office of Agricultural Studies and Policy) statistics, Chile has an average consumption of 150 liters of dairy products per person, ranking among the highest in Latin America. More than 2 billion liters of milk were received in 2022, with nearly 460 million used for liquid milk production, where skimmed, semi-skimmed and flavored varieties experienced growth compared to 2021, the company indicated.
Within this framework, Tetra Pak prides itself on being a trusted partner to the dairy industry, offering innovative and sustainable packaging that guarantees the quality and safety of milk from production to consumption. Tetra Pak packages are designed with state-of-the-art technology to protect milk from light, air and other external factors, preserving its freshness and nutritional value without the need for refrigeration before opening.
How does Tetra Pak technology protect milk?
What differentiates Tetra Pak is that they incorporate aseptic technology and an ultra-pasteurization (UHT) process that preserves nutrients, eliminates the need for refrigeration and keeps food fresher for longer.
“The packaging solution has evolved with the needs of the consumer, and today a child can consume a portion of his favorite milk in our 200ml portion packs at school break, without the need to maintain a cold chain and without risk. The product is perishable. This means that without worrying about how food safety is transported, The home is cared for and protected inside and out,” said Sebastian Eskenazi, general manager of Tetra Pak Chile. In addition, he pointed out that “in 2022, the work to buy areas returned with energy, reaching levels similar to 2019, restoring this pattern of importance compared to epidemics”.
“At Tetra Pak, we understand the importance of milk in people’s nutrition. Our packages not only protect the quality of milk but also support our efforts to promote sustainability in the dairy industry,” he said. “We celebrate World Milk Day and, within this framework, we reaffirm our commitment to protect this valuable resource and provide safe, convenient and sustainable packaging that allows it to reach all parts of the planet.”
