Tetra Pak has acquired Johnson Industries International, a manufacturer of equipment to produce mozzarella cheese.

Johnson Industries International is one of North America’s principal suppliers to the high-quality, high-volume segment of mozzarella cheese manufacturing. It also manufactures a range of cheese cutting, shredding and brining equipment.

Monica Gimre, executive vice president, processing systems at Tetra Pak, said, “Many of our customers are expanding production in this category. Thanks to this acquisition, we can now ensure they have access to a complete equipment and services solution, helping minimise the complexity of plant management.”

Johnson Industries International will remain in its current location in Wisconsin, USA, and will continue to focus on its core business.
