CNP - California Natural Products

For nearly 40 years, the team at CNP has been manufacturing a variety of pureed soups and rich broths made from fresh vegetables as well as traditional spices and flavors. Thanks to our location in San Joaquin Valley, known as the food basket of the world, our clients and manufacturers enjoy access to a broad range of high quality, fresh vegetables. Our advanced aseptic manufacturing process keeps your soups and broths self-stable, flavorful, rich and safe for 12 to 18 months.

Soups, Broths and Aseptic Processing

As part of our manufacturing process, your soups and broths are manufactured and packaged in a commercial-grade sterilization facility. This eliminates potential food borne pathogens. We also minimize employee contact, keeping our machinery and environment sterile. 

During the manufacturing process, we rapidly heat and cool your soups and broths to keep them sterile, fresh, flavorful and safe. Once the manufacturing process is complete, we put your products into sterile packaging to maintain freshness. We can package soups and broths into Tetra Prisma Aseptic 500 ml or Tetra Brik Aseptic 1000 ml Slim packages. (You can learn more about our Tetra-Pak capabilities here.

Quality Assurance

While manufacturing your soups and broths, our quality assurance team continually tests samples of your products to ensure your standards have been met. This process provides consistent, high-quality products. 

After your products have been manufactured, our teams test samples for consistency and safety. We pride ourselves on providing this extra step for additional peace of mind. And, don't worry, if your soups or broths do not meet your standards, they will not be released.

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.
