CNP - California Natural Products

Over the last few years, consumer interest in rich, nutritious dairy beverages has significantly increased. At CNP, we understand these trends, and can help you deliver quality, flavorful, safe aseptic milk and other dairy beverages to consumers worldwide. 

Our team can help you source your dairy ingredients or assist you during the product development process. We're experts at creating delicious, creamy dairy products, including shelf-stable beverages, yogurt and weight-loss shakes.

Dairy Beverages and Aseptic Processing

Thanks to our advanced aseptic manufacturing process, your dairy beverages are manufactured and packaged in a commercial-grade sterilization facility. This means 100% of potential food borne pathogens are eliminated. We also minimize employee contact while keeping our machinery and environment sterile. 

During the manufacturing process, we rapidly heat and cool your beverage to keep it sterile, fresh, flavorful and safe. Once the manufacturing process is complete, we put your beverages into pre-sterilized packaging materials and seal them. This airtight environment ensures your products remain shelf-stable, delicious and safe. 

Quality Assurance

During a manufacturing or production run, our quality assurance team continually tests samples of your products to ensure your standards have been met. This process provides a consistent, high-quality product every time. 

Once your run is complete, our teams test samples of every single one of your products (no really, every single one!) for consistency and safety. We pride ourselves on providing this extra step for additional peace of mind. And, rest assured, if your product does not meet our standards, or yours, it will not be released.

We take protecting your brand and products very seriously. 


Our aseptic process allows us to produce a variety of dairy beverages, including:


  • Milk
  • Flavored milk
  • Organic milk

  • Flavored creamers

Work with Us

CNP works with its customers from concept development through manufacturing. We are uniquely positioned to offer our clients raw materials from the ingredients side of our business, product development for aseptically processed food and beverage products, scale-up trial runs as well as manufacturing.

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. We also pioneered the packaging of natural and organic aseptic beverages in the mid 1990’s. Throughout our history, we have been a recognized leader in the nutritional, natural and organic food movements.

Today, as part of the Gehl Foods family, we produce a diverse portfolio of dairy-based products using advanced technology and resources that allow us to continue to provide quality, freshness, and personal service to our customers.
