The Gehl Foods Advantage
Aseptic Manufacturing: Aseptic manufacturing transforms fresh, quality ingredients into shelf-stable products. This process gives foods and beverages like nutritional beverages, dairy alternatives, cheese sauces and pudding longer, fresher shelf lives by eliminating microorganisms that cause spoilage.
Safety: When we enter into a contract manufacturing partnership, we treat your brand like our own. Upon finishing a production run, we thoroughly check products after incubation. This extra level of handling ensures food safety and provides extra peace of mind.
Consistency: Our specialized aseptic process delivers consistency over the course of the run. Instead of running many small batches, we focus on large, standardized batches, reducing recipe variations. With this method, the first package is guaranteed to taste like the last.
Packaging: We understand packaging is an important component of brand reputation and recognition and can assist with custom bottle development and label design. Our aseptic packaging and filling solutions are flexible enough to accommodate your needs. Our resources provide a wide range of packaging configurations to keep your packaging options open.
Allergen Control: Our allergen control programs allows us to accommodate both allergenic and non-allergenic products. We carefully schedule each product run, keeping ingredients separate, and production efficient.
Certifications: Need to go organic? No problem. We can make certified organic products. We also have many other certifications, including:
- FDA Certification
- USDA Certification
- GFSI Certification
- BRC Global Standards
- USDA Organic
- Kosher (beverages)
- Gluten Free
