As one of only a handful in the UK and the only aseptic plant in the South West, Cobell's aseptic packaging facility is quite unique.
The system pasteurises the juice and fills it into pre-sterilised bags after first cleaning the connection with steam. The bag is then sealed to provide a microbiologically stable, commercially sterile pack.
This allows products that would traditionally require frozen storage to be held at ambient or chilled temperatures, making it easier to store, handle and transport, and ensuring the contents are always ready to use without needing to defrost first. We are also able to offer special tap fitments with many of our packs which allow an opened shelf life of up to 21 days, which compares favourably with the three to five days that is typical for fruit juices. This can significantly assist with minimising waste in catering, hospitality and manufacturing operations where stock turnover can be unpredictable.
Cobell can supply aseptically packed boxes in sizes of 5, 10 and 20 litres/kilograms, drums of 200-250 200 litres (190 - 260kg) and blend to your requirements. Plus, Our aseptic packaging and storage facilities in Exeter are accredited to both the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety and Soil Association Organic standard. We are also members of the European Fruit Juice Association (AIJN) and are approved to supply Fairtrade ingredients.
