A Tetra Top packaging solution for high acid ambient distribution (HAAD) still drinks is now available. Tetra Top for HAAD is a flexible, attractive and cost-effective packaging solution that enables manufacturers to produce, distribute and sell high acid still drinks such as ice tea, fruit drinks and sports drinks without using the chilled chain. The ambient still drinks market stands at 100 million litres and is growing, providing producers with many new growth opportunities.

Tetra Top for HAAD enables the packaging, transport and storage of ambient still drinks for up to six months without the need for preservatives.

The Tetra Top package is easy to open, re-close and pour from.

There are several key environmental benefits with Tetra Top for HAAD. The main component is paperboard, a renewable and recyclable resource. It can be folded flat for recycling.

Tetra Top for HAAD is produced on an upgraded version of the flexible, two-line TT/3 filling machine, which produces up to 9000 packages/h. TT/3 for HAAD includes improved package sterilisation, hygiene chamber disinfection and a clean air system (HEPA). It also use less production floor space (up to 35%) than plastic lines.

Tetra Top for HAAD is available in a variety of shapes and sizes from 200 to 1000 mL.

The Tetra top package is a roll-fed packaging solution with a carton material sleeve crowned and an injection-moulded polyethylene top, which is sealed to the package in a single process. It is a re-closable, square package with rounded corners and the opening device makes it easy to open, pour from and re-close.

Producers can create a range of different Tetra Top packages by combining bottom formats, volumes, tops, carton materials, print qualities and cap colours. This gives a broad scope for differentiation and makes Tetra Top suitable for both on-the-go and home consumption products like branded juice, white milk, flavoured milk, drinking yoghurt, spoonable desserts, probiotics drinks in chilled distribution and now ice tea, sports drinks and flavoured still drinks in ambient distribution.
