Pharmaceutical Level Quality

Food Safety & Quality

During a production run, our experienced Quality Assurance team continually pulls samples of the product for a complete testing program to verify your standards have been met. These operating procedures allow us to troubleshoot against potential product variances, ensuring the same high quality product every time.

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

During bottle production we test 100% of products. Nobody else does that.  This extra level of handling ensures food safety, and provides an 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.   Aseptic means we eliminate 100% of the potential food borne pathogens that can compromise food safety and degrade quality.  By packaging our products aseptically to preserve their fresh flavor, we can avoid the use of preservatives.  Unlike refrigerated and frozen products, you can trust Gehl’s products to be completely safe, 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, so you can feel confident that your product is meeting all the necessary regulations. Over the years we have successfully brought hundreds of products to market.

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

Safety

When we enter into a 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.

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