Updated: 17:01’ - 27/02/2023
Tetra Pak - the world's leading food processing and packaging solutions company from Sweden, has exceeded the stringent criteria for quality control to obtain a certification from BRCGS with an exceptional AA+ grade for its carton packaging material factory in Binh Duong. The accolade represents the unwavering efforts that the factory has maintained to ensure food safety and best quality for its packaging material.

Tetra Pak Bình Dương have won BRCGS certification with AA rating for four consecutive years since 2019

Out of 82 factories in the packaging sector, Tetra Pak Binh Duong was the only plant to achieve the AA+ grade rating in Vietnam.
BRCGS is a quality management system standard created by the British Retail Consortium in 1996 to protect consumers. The standard has been developed to specify the food safety, quality and operational criteria required to be in place within a packaging manufacturer.
To achieve a coveted AA+ rating, the factory is only allowed to have five or fewer non-conformities. During the unannounced audit by an independent third party, Tetra Pak Binh Duong only received two minor infractions. This certification is valid until March 6, 2024.

Tetra Pak Binh Duong applies the most stringent criteria in production

“Obtaining the BRCGS certification with an AA+ rating in an announced audit continues to demonstrate our strict adherence and consistent quality of the manufacturing process at Tetra Pak Binh Duong. This further strengthens our confidence in food safety and quality with consumers as well as food and beverage manufacturers,” said Mr. Eliseo Barcas, Managing Director of Tetra Pak Vietnam.
The Binh Duong site began operations in 2019 and has implemented many high-demanding requirements and standards for production. The factory specializes in producing aseptic carton packages for the domestic market, exporting to countries in ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand. Despite disruption from the global Covid-19 pandemic, Tetra Pak Bình Dương have won BRCGS certification with AA rating for four consecutive years since 2019, maintaining a proud history of accomplishments. 

With confidence in the post-pandemic economic rebound, Tetra Pak invested an additional 5 million euros in the factory in Binh Duong

In 2020, Tetra Pak Binh Duong was one of a few factories in Vietnam to achieve receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Version 4 Gold Certification, a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement in 2020. By applying LEED, the factory has made a significant impact in sustainability by saving 2 million liters of water per year, reusing or recycling 90 percent of generated waste and offsetting 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
With confidence that the economy will rebound post-pandemic and efforts to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the factory operation by 2030 underway, Tetra Pak has invested an additional Є5M in the factory. The investment aims to increase annual output from the current 11.5 billion carton packages to 16.5 billion, along with installing 2,300 solar panels on the factory's roof.-
