Tetra Pak inaugurates its 1st Carton Packaging material factory in Vietnam
 
In July 2019, Tetra Pak inaugurates Vietnam’s first-ever aseptic carton packaging material factory in Binh Duong, adding Vietnam to its global supply chain map.
As Tetra Pak’s 8th factory in the Asia Pacific region, this €120 million (US$133.8 million) regional manufacturing facility is set to produce aseptic cartons for domestic and export markets in ASEAN and Australasia.
The liquid food market in Vietnam has been growing at a healthy 6?GR for the last 3 years, and is projected to grow at a similar pace during the next 3 years, as compared to a lower 4% growth per annum in the Asia Pacific region and 3% globally.
The Binh Duong factory has an expandable capacity of 20 billion packs per annum, and it will currently produce the popular Tetra Brik Aseptic and Tetra Fino Aseptic packages, with the possibility of producing more packaging formats in future.
Leveraging more than 65 years of Tetra Pak’s global manufacturing experience, the new factory has applied World Class Manufacturing standards from the design of the factory, to its operations today. It integrates the latest technologies & best-in-class production standards focusing on food safety, quality and sustainability.
The new Tetra Pak factory is one of the first factories in Vietnam to apply the latest, most-demanding environmental standards in pursuit of the globally-recognised LEED Version 4 Gold certification. With various measures in place, for instance an energy monitoring system and water recycling facilities, the new factory could reduce its energy usage for facilities by up to 36% and reuse over 21 million litres of water a year. In addition, the production and warehouse facilities are climate-controlled to ensure highest quality of carton packages. The factory has also implemented all key certifications for quality, environment and safety including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 as well as other world-class standards.
Jeffrey Fielkow, Managing Director for Tetra Pak Vietnam said, “This is a proud moment for us, which coincides with yet another historical milestone, as we celebrate the completion of 25 years of Tetra Pak’s presence in Vietnam. With the new factory, we feel even more strongly connected to Vietnam and our customers, and even more confident of shaping the future of the industry, together.”
