The demand for aseptic packaging is growing rapidly in the United States food and beverage industry, according to the forecasts of several packaging research firms.

For example, The Freedonia Group of Cleveland, OH projects that demand in the U.S. for aseptic packaging will expand 8.0 percent annually to create a market valued at $5.1 billion in 2015.

This growth will be driven in part by the advantages that aseptic packaging provide in the distribution and storage of food and beverages, particularly in the dairy industry. Some of these advantages include helping to extend the shelf life of a product and keeping it shelf stable for a longer period of time, and increasing your product’s visibility and shelf appeal. Furthermore, many companies are investing in research and development to explore new product categories and markets for aseptic packaging that can serve as a catalyst for expanding aseptic packaging into more industries.

For example, Fres-co has also created aseptic packaging for applications in the support of healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry, including the delivery of antibiotics and blood replacement solutions, and hanging pouches for patients who require tube feeding.

The FSU1000 from Fres-co System USA, Inc., is an FDA-validated system that provides fully automatic, low-acid aseptic packaging for a wide variety of foods. While aseptic packaging is particularly useful for the dairy industry, where products may have a much shorter shelf life (e.g., cheese sauces, cream, flavored milk pouches, milkshake mixes), it is also extremely useful for other varieties of food and beverage, such as nutritional supplements for infants and seniors, sauces in retail flat pouches, non-dairy creamer, and more.

The FSU1000 is designed to produce a variety of different pouch sizes and shapes, including flat pouches, shaped pouches, and stand-up pouches that are perfect for displaying and will help to draw attention to your product and increase its shelf presence. Furthermore, the FSU1000 is easy to maintain, and the frame and components that come in contact with your product are made from FDA-validated 300 series stainless steel for easy cleaning, with filling systems built to 3A sanitary standards.

With the demand for aseptic packaging growing steadily and more and more industries turning towards using aseptic packaging solutions for their multi-viscosity food and beverage products, it’s important to stay ahead of the game and make sure that you have an aseptic packaging machine that is reliable and built-to-last.

For more than 40 years, Fres-co System USA, Inc. has manufactured high-performance flexible packaging systems and invented dozens of innovative breakthroughs including degassing valves, modified atmosphere technologies, and reclosure systems.
