Tetra Pak announced the deal today

Tetra Pak has acquired plant engineering company Miteco for an undisclosed fee.

The deal, unveiled today (4 February), gives Tetra Pak access to Miteco's beverage production technology, Tetra Pak said. Switzerland-based Miteco describes itself as a “provider of production solutions” for soft drinks, fruit juices and liquid food, with a “particular strength” in CSDs.

A spokesperson for Tetra Pak, also based in Switzerland, said the purchase “extends the company’s beverage production capabilities in a number of key areas, including sugar handling, dissolving, refining, mixing and blending beverage ingredients, providing an important complement to our existing portfolio of processing solutions”.

Last year, Tetra Pak cut the ribbon on a US$125m packaging factory in India that doubled its capacity in the country.
