Aseptic Manufacturing

Gehl Food & Beverage has been a pioneer of low-acid aseptic dairy processing since the early 1970s. Our aseptic products are ready-to-serve and packed in convenient packages that fit the needs of your consumers. Our secret is an advanced aseptic process that locks in freshness without refrigeration.

Our highly-specialized aseptic process allows food and beverage products to achieve commercial sterility. Through a process of combining commercially-sterile ingredients with pre-sterilized packging materials and sealed in a commercially-sterile environment, we create on-trend products that won’t spoil at ambient temperatures. This airtight seal and sterile environment allows a 12 – 18 month ambient shelf life without compromising taste.

Going The Extra Mile

Why Aseptic?

Aseptic manufacturing transforms fresh, quality ingredients into shelf-stable products. This process gives foods and beverages like nutritional drinks, dairy alternatives, cheese sauces, and puddings longer, fresher shelf lives by eliminating microorganisms that cause spoilage.

Because of our dedicated, aseptic focus, Gehl Food & Beverage and California Natural Products create possiblities to differentiate today's brands with: 

High Quality 



We provide consistent quality and guaranteed fresh flavor.  We also ensure our machinery and environment remains commercially sterile.  


Ready to Eat



As packaged, our products are ready to eat and commercially stable WITHOUT requiring preservatives.   




Our specialized aseptic process delivers consistency over the course of the production 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 as great as the last.   





We provide easy-to-use and convenient products for every industry.  Store products without refrigeration for up to 18 months.

Ambient products reduce the cost of shipping and warehousing.
