Kasapreko, an indigenous manufacturer and producer of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and Tetra Pak have inaugurated an automated carton aseptic juice line.
Over the past two years, the two companies have been working closely to make the project a reality.
At the ceremony to launch the juice line, the Managing Director of Kasapreko Company Limited, Mr Richard Adjei, said the company was always keen to cater for the growing needs of Ghanaian consumers and that “is why we constantly innovate high quality and affordable products to meet all needs. We are launching our juice brands in catering and we have many innovations to be released in the near future.”
“We are excited to expand this new category, which will magnify our horizons. We are thankful to Tetra Pak for offering us cutting-edge solutions while maintaining the highest standards of food safety and operational performance in a sustainable fashion.”

The new products launched under the brand “Kiddy Pack” offer a high level of food protection as a result of six layers packaging that protects the juice inside from light, oxygen, loss of flavour and odour intake.
“The technology used maximises the destruction of micro-organisms, which allows an unopened aseptic package to be stored without the need for refrigeration for up to six months.
“Kiddy Pack” supports Kasapreko and Tetra Pak’s aim of protecting the planet with a packaging made primarily from natural wood fibre, recyclable and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship council),” Kasapreko said.
For his part, the Managing Director of Tetra Pak West Africa said: “Kasapreko is an innovative company that is committed to contributing to Ghana’s development as well as to introducing new products, flavours and package sizes in the market.”
