Tetra Laval (Switzerland)

Tetra Laval consists of three primary groups, namely, Tetra Pak, Sidel, and DeLaval. All three groups are focused on technologies for ensuring efficiency in production, packaging, and distribution of food. Tetra Pak develops and manufactures processing, distribution, and packaging systems for food and liquid.

 DeLaval is active in developing and producing systems for milk production and animal husbandry. Sidel develops and manufactures plastic packaging and complete bottling lines. Tetra Pak contributes to a major portion of the revenue, providing a broad array of processing equipment, processing lines, filling machines, distribution equipment, and aseptic solutions to various sectors of food applications, such as dairy, soy & dairy alternatives, juice & drinks, wine & spirits, cheese, ice cream, pet food, and whey powders.

In July 2022, Tetra Pak announced its exit from its remaining operations in Russia, a decision prompted by the cumulative impact of export restrictions, rendering the supply chain unsustainable. This move was necessitated as the company found itself with no alternative, given the challenging circumstances.

The company successfully reached an agreement to divest its Russian business to local management. The primary goals were to facilitate business continuity for customers, minimize the impact on employees, and uphold consumers' access to essential food. Following the transfer of ownership, the new entity would operate independently with a new name, completely separate from Tetra Pak. This marked the conclusion of Tetra Pak's 62-year presence in Russia.
