Mexican beverage company Jumex is the first anywhere to adopt the Tetra Wedge Aseptic Clear package from Tetra Pak - a triangular-shaped, 100% transparent, film version of its Tetra Wedge paperboard/PET barrier package.
Jumex rolled out the single-serve package into the Mexican market in May for its Mundo Nautix vitamin-enhanced drink line.
The package's proprietary barrier technology uses silicon oxide/polyethylene terephthalate instead of the paperboard and aluminium foil found in other Tetra Wedge packs, and provides the same oxygen barrier.
The packaging material is moisture- and puncture-resistant and comes with a film-wrapped drinking straw attached to the back.
The clear package not only provides product visibility but its barriers protect the product.
The aseptic processing helps seal in taste and nutrition.
With its slim design, smooth sides and no sharp edges, the clear package is a shoe-in for children’s' drinks.
