ARKANSAS CITY, Kan., May 5 KanPak, an industry leader in aseptic beverage and dessert solutions, has introduced a new aseptic bottling solution at its domestic facility in Arkansas City, Kan, adding 50,000 square feet of production space. The line provides both restaurants and beverage producers with a new, shelf-stable FDA-filed bottling option produced in the U.S., with capabilities for both low- and high-acid products.
"Our advanced technology bottling line brings new options to customers that seek to provide shelf-stable solutions," said Dennis Cohlmia, KanPak CEO. "This new line provides the right solutions to meet industry and customer demand for high-quality beverages with the versatility of aseptically packaged products."
KanPak's new technology provides customers with products that have an increased shelf life compared to refrigerated products. The combination of this new technology and the savings of ambient transportation offer a better solution for customers and the ecosystem.
"We continue to see energy costs increase," added Cohlmia. "Developing an aseptic bottling line to produce a variety of beverages that do not require refrigeration reduces costs in storage, distribution and transportation. Preserving our natural resources is a priority at KanPak."
Committed to investing in the latest technology, KanPak incorporates the use of a new type of filler in the line. The new bottling line follows an aseptic production process that fills product in a closed sterile environment without compromising quality, safety, nutrition or taste.
"Our company is constantly evolving," said Cohlmia. "KanPak is a knowledge-based business, and we continue to build our business as a developer and manufacturer of aseptic products through advancements in food science, aseptic processing and aseptic packaging."
While KanPak has been an industry leader in traditional aseptic pouch and bag-in-a-box technology, the aseptic bottling line provides customers with a new advantage. KanPak has already begun producing aseptic bottles for customers including Tenaya, a beverage company that created MADE, a new drink crafted from organic ingredients including green tea and fruit juices.
