Tetra Pak to install latest filling line at Al Rabie
Dubai, April 15, 2012
Tetra Pak, a leader in food processing and packaging solutions, signed an agreement with Saudi Arabia’s Al Rabie Saudi Foods to install the world’s first high speed Tetra Prisma Aseptic 200 Sq filling line.
The $2.5 million agreement was signed in Germany on the sidelines of a major food and beverage technology exhibition.
Tetra Pak’s Tetra Prisma Aseptic 200 Sq filling line technology offers a host of advantages, including packaging 24,000 juice cartons per hour. The new high speed machine technology can do the job of three regular filling lines, allowing faster, more efficient use of resources.
“Tetra Pak constantly strives to provide customers with the most efficient technologies based on advances in the food processing and packaging solutions. The agreement between Tetra Pak and Al Rabie is another step supporting our vision to make food safe and available everywhere,” said Jan Juul Larsen, managing director of Tetra Pak Arabia.
Monther Al Harthi, CEO of Al Rabie Saudi Foods, said: “Since Al Rabie’s inception in the 1980, we have built a reputation for offering quality and healthy products that cater to the desires of our growing customer base.”
“Tetra Prisma Aseptic packages are an exciting shape for our customers; we are the leading brand sold in these innovative packages in the region, supported by the latest machine technology,” he added.
