Going the Extra Mile

The Gehl Food & Beverage Story

For more than 125 years, Gehl Food & Beverage has provided aspetically-manufactured food and beverage products for consumption around the world. Our focus on providing high-quality products has driven us to become the nation’s leading aseptic manufacturer. Gehl Food & Beverage creates dairy and non-dairy products that safely feed our future. And that’s something we do not take lightly. 

In 2018, Gehl Foods, LLC acquired California Natural Products. Together, we are dedicated to providing delicious, nutritious, and convenient products for the whole family. Whether you are enjoying nachos while cheering on your team, sitting with family at breakfast topping your cereal with oat milk, or drinking a high-protein shake after your workout, we have you covered.
