Packaging company Tetra Pak is helping processors take advantage of the lucrative ice cream market through an innovative aseptic pouch.

The company has created a marketing opportunity which allows beverage companies to turn their drinks into ice creams and frozen products.

The Tetra Fino Aseptic 100 Ultra MiM package gives customers the opportunity to produce liquid dairy and juice drinks using their existing production processes and then market them as ice creams to consumers.

As a result of the packaging, dairy and juice drinks can be produced and distributed in small carton pouches at room temperature, then turned into frozen products in shops or in a consumer’s home.
