CNP - California Natural Products

Our Aseptic Solutions


CNP specializes in developing aseptic beverage solutions that keep beverages, including real dairy products, flavorful, fresh and safe for 12 – 18 months without the use of refrigeration or other preservatives. Our secret is an advanced aseptic manufacturing process that locks in flavor and freshness while preventing spoilage. 

Aseptic Processing 


Our commercial-grade sterilization aseptic manufacturing process eliminates harmful food borne pathogens that can compromise food safety and degrade quality.  We also minimize employee contact while ensuing our machinery and environment remains sterile. 

As part of our process, we rapidly heat and cool your beverage. Once the manufacturing process is complete, your beverage is put into pre-sterilized packaging materials and sealed. This airtight, sterile environment keeps your beverages shelf-stable without compromising flavor or safety.

Throughout your production run, our experienced quality assurance team tests samples of your product(s) to verify your standards have been met. These procedures protect against potential product variances, ensuing consistency and safety.

Once your run is complete, our quality assurance and food safety teams test samples of every single product This extra step ensues safety while providing peace of mind. For example, if the product doesn't meet our standards, or yours, it will not be released. We are strict about food safety because we know how important your brand and reputation are.

Since we were founded in 1980, we have been an innovator in the development of aseptic beverages, foods and food ingredients. We enjoy helping manufacturers bring their products to market faster and easier. We have a proven track record of success in the nutritional, natural and organic food industries. For example, we invented and patented the natural processes for rice syrup, rice syrup solids, and rice milk in the early 1980’s.
