About the employer

At Tetra Pak, we commit to making food safe and available, everywhere and we promise to protect what’s good: food, people and the planet. We firmly believe that being able to access safe and nutritious food should be considered a right, not a privilege. But how do you package a litre of milk, transport it to where it’s needed most, and know that when it’s eventually opened, even months later, it is safe and tasty to drink? That’s the challenge we solve with our customers every day. The ‘how’ is a little technical however... We pioneered aseptic technology, which allows us to package a commercially sterile food product so that it can last longer, be distributed further and stored without the need for refrigeration or preservatives. This innovative technology underpins our ability to get food and drink that is safe to consume to the remotest parts of the world where access to safe food cannot be taken for granted. And this kind of technology has never been more in-need. By 2030, there will be even more people in the world – all of whom will be relying on a healthy, nourishing and affordable diet to thrive. Our ability to make sure food and drink can reach the people who need it, while protecting its nutritional quality will only become ever more important.   But we can’t do this at the expense of our planet. While rising to the challenge of meeting the growing demand for food, the world also urgently needs businesses to find new ways of operating that respond to the climate crisis, protecting and restoring the environment.  Our heritage of innovation and restless pursuit to secure access to safe, nutritious food for all still drives us. Today, we need to do that sustainably, finding new ways, with new collaborations, to help deliver the solutions our customers need, in a way that enables communities and the planet to flourish.
