Tetra Pak has cut the ribbon on a IND7tn (US$125m) packaging factory in India that doubles its capacity in the country.

The plant, at Chakan, near Pune, will take Tetra Pak's output to 8.5bn packages per year, the company said today (29 May). The factory has the potential to scale capacity up to 16bn packages, Tetra Pak said.

The firm, which has been in India for 26 years, said the inauguration “marks a significant milestone in Tetra Pak’s increasing presence in the Indian subcontinent”.
