Who We Are
Since 1896, Gehl Foods has provided America with delicious food and beverage products. We are focused on global food manufacturing, developing and shipping quality products to customers around the world.
As part of our global program, we offer standard food-away-from-home (FAFH) offerings as well as custom food and beverage formulations that surpass expectations and meet regulations while aligning with regional flavor palettes.
Regardless of where they are served, all of our products are developed in aseptic, sterile manufacturing facilities, transforming real, quality ingredients into shelf stable products. Our manufacturing process creates commercially-sterile product, ensuring freshness without refrigeration, preservatives or compromising taste.
Partnering with Gehl Foods
As a trusted, international food and beverage company, we supply the dispenser technology and expertise, food product and packaging solutions for global companies. For example, we’ve helped big brands in the foodservice industry develop great tasting cheese sauce, puddings, sweet sauces and bulk creamer products. These products can be found in more than 150,000 locations worldwide.
During product development, we focus on:
- Great Taste
Throughout this process, we leverage our industry research and consumer insights. Using this research saves you time and money while still capturing the latest trends.
The Gehl Foods International Food Away From Home Advantage
Thanks to our aseptic processing technique, products stay fresher longer. Not only does this process produce commercially-sterile product, but they are also delivered ready to eat. While they can be heated or cooled to proper serving temperature, they do not require temperatures of 165 degrees to serve.
Though we offer standard #10 cans, we also use innovative packing solutions utilizing pouches. Pouches eliminate sharp edges that can hurt employees and contaminate products. Additionally, pouches ensure a long shelf life and great flavor. With pouches, there is less chance of spoilage due to compromised seals.
Another advantage of pouches is that they are as strong as cans, designed and tested to withstand 700 pounds of pressure. However, they weigh less and take up 20% less shipping space on their way to market. Another benefit? Pouch packing requires half the energy to deliver to our plants.
Dispensers for FAFH International
Our dispensers are easy to set up and maintain. Simply load the product into our heated dispenser, allowing sauces to reach a safe serving temperature of 140°F without additional efforts by the dispenser operator.
In addition to easy operation, our dispensers also protect products, keeping them hot and ready-to-serve for days (up to seven depending on the formula). When it’s time to replace products, our equipment makes it simple to dispose packaging and load new product.
Whether you are using the high volume Gehl’s Hot Top Single or the innovative new Gehl’s 2.0, sauce dispensers have never been easier to use.
International Private Label Packaging Solutions
Besides supplying products and equipment, we also develop custom private label flavors and packaging solutions. Like our FAFH offerings, our private label products are also developed in aseptic manufacturing facilities using real dairy ingredients, locking in taste while preserving a long shelf life.
Our flexible private label manufacturing solutions give us the ability to create, manufacture and supply products that meet the specific needs of our clients and regions. For example, if you need an EU compliant product, we can develop it. If you need a new flavor, we can make it. We also develop Halal and Kosher certified food and beverages.
Unlike most private label manufacturing companies, our offerings don’t end with product formulas. We also manufacture bottles, design creative labels and assist with international export distribution.
