Tetra Pak has strengthened its product offering for ice cream manufacturers with the acquisition of Big Drum Engineering GmbH, a leading supplier of filling machines for the industry. The deal further extends the company’s ability to provide end-to-end solutions for food and beverage companies around the world, and reinforces its global leadership in the sector. Tetra Pak already provides a full range of ice cream equipment, including raw material storage, mix preparation, continuous freezing and inclusion systems, as well as production solutions for moulded and extruded ice cream products. The acquisition of Big Drum will strengthen the company’s presence in the “filled” ice cream segment (e.g. tubs and cones) which represent approximately half of the global packaged ice cream market.

At Lecta, we are reaffirming our commitment to sustainability by moving towards developing innovative solutions that contribute to reducing our environmental impact and encouraging the circular economy.
For this reason, we have substituted the polyethylene film layer with a functional protective barrier, resulting in a 100% plastic-free soft-wrap paper guaranteed to protect the product in optimum condition thereby ensuring the correct storage of Adestor self-adhesive products. With this action, we contribute to an annual reduction of 27 tons of consumed plastic and its equivalent 94,5 tons in CO2 emissions, according to official carbon footprint calculations defined by www.ciel.org (Center for International Environmental Law).
Lecta’s new soft-wrap paper is 100% recyclable and meets the current EN:13430 standard for recoverable containers and packaging.
With this launch, we reaffirm our commitment, as a responsible company, to facilitate the recycling process of soft-wrap paper, thereby minimizing the environmental impact and reducing the associated waste management costs.
Moreover, the new soft-wrap paper for Adestor ream-wrapped sheets is FSC® C011032 certified, guaranteeing that our paper is manufactured with cellulose from responsibly managed forests.
With less plastic and more paper, we are better able to protect our products and our environment.
