Nearly Pharmaceutical Level Quality Assurance

Food Safety & Quality

During a production run, our experienced Quality Assurance team regularly pulls product samples for a rigorous testing program to verify your standards have been met. This operating procedure allows us to troubleshoot potential product variances to provide the same high-quality product every time.

Upon finishing a run, our Quality Assurance and Food Safety teams test samples of every single product during incubation periods to provide a consistent, great-tasting product that is safe for consumption.

During bottle production, we test 100% of bottled products for leaks. This extra level of handling helps to ensure food safety and provides extra peace of mind. If the product doesn’t meet our standards, it won’t be released. We are strict about food safety because we know the importance of food safety to your brand and YOUR customers.

Quality is so important here because we only make aseptic foods and beverages. Aseptic means commercially sterile, where we kill potential food borne pathogens that can compromise food safety and degrade quality. Also, by packaging our products aseptically, we preserve their fresh flavor so that neither preservatives nor refrigeration is required. And unlike refrigerated and frozen products, products received from Gehl Food & Beverage are commercially sterile and ready to eat when first opened.  

 

Our Commitment

Our commitment to product safety at Gehl Food & Beverage is why we are the leader in aseptic manufacturing.  We know what the industry requires and have successfully brought hundreds of products to market.

 

 

Food Safety Standards

World-Class Quality Systems

We maintain rigorous food-safety standards through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards ranging from those in raw-material production, procurement, and handling to manufacturing.

Our world-class quality systems, metrics, and targets throughout our manufacturing process are put in place for greater food safety and high-quality production, maintenance, and warehousing.

Our dedication to food safety and quality assurance is reflected in the multiple certifications we have received and the testing that we perform.

Testing for Quality Assurance

  • Microbial analysis/pH analysis
  • Seven-day incubation product hold for evaluation
  • Organoleptic evaluation
  • Total solids-brix monitoring
  • Package integrity evaluation

 

Safety

When we enter into a manufacturing collaboration, we treat your brand like our own. Upon finishing a production run, we rigorously check product samples after incubation. This extra level of handling helps to ensure food safety and provides extra peace of mind.

 

 

 

Allergen Control

Our allergen control programs allow us to accomodate both allergenic and non-allergenic products. We carefully schedule each product run, keeping ingredients separate and production efficient.
