Sustainable JNSD line pays off – Tetra Pak wins “IFU 2019 Innovation Award”

"In 2011, we realized that something could be done differently in the Juice-Nectar-Still Drink (JNSD) industry and decided to focus on how to make juice production more sustainable. To achieve that we needed to find innovative solutions which save energy and water", says Maria Norlin, Subcategory Manager JNSD & Other Beverages. This was the start of a long-term project to develop a low-energy JNSD line. Traditionally, we pasteurize the full volume (juice concentrate + water), where the most energy-intensive process step is heat treatment. In the new line, we pasteurize the smallest possible volume, the concentrate. The rest which is water is treated separately with more cost-effective aseptic technologies such as filtration and UV light. On October 1st, this ground-breaking initiative was recognized by International Fruit and Vegetable juice Association, as Tetra Pak was honoured with the "IFU 2019 Innovation Award" at the annual Juice Summit in Antwerp, Belgium.
