Tetra Pak has launched an automated tank with constant temperature control, called 'Tetra Alsafe for ESL', which preserves extended shelf-life (ESL) milk product quality between processing and packaging.

Distributed under chilled conditions with a shelf-life of up to 30 days, ESL products are gaining popularity among consumers, retailers and producers compared with traditional pasteurised products.

However, ESL products require careful handling and Tetra Alsafe for ESL is claimed to provide a solution to this challenge. It adds a continuous circular configuration to the filling line, enabling products to continue to circulate under refrigerated conditions in the event of an unplanned stoppage. This eliminates the risk of bacteria growth that can arise when the temperature of the product increases as it remains stationary during an unplanned stoppage.

"ESL products open up a major growth opportunity for customers across the entire food and drinks industry,"​ says Kresten Hjortsballe, category director dairy at Tetra Pak.
