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.

Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has created Protector Bag ExpandForm, a paperbag solution with an expandable feature to safely rollpack mattresses.
Protector Bag ExpandForm replaces the current plastic packaging with a flexible and recyclable alternative. The solution is also customisable and can expand to different sizes while holding the mattress securely. The packaging is made with Mondi’s kraft paper, which is responsibly sourced and renewable, and can be recycled contributing to a circular economy. The paper bag is puncture resistant and suitable for printing, meaning brands can customise their deliveries with a high-quality finish. Unlike plastic, the paper layers are also breathable and can emit gas that can evaporate easily with this new packaging.
Megaflex Schaumstoff, a family-owned manufacturer for flexible foams and mattresses and sleeping products, is the first company to protect its products with this new packaging. Megaflex collaborated closely with Mondi and machine producer FillMatic to ensure a smooth switch from its current plastic rollpacking equipment.
