Amboy breaks new ground in smaller aseptic pouches (sidebar)
Amboy Specialty Foods Company’s expertise in low-acid aseptic dairy products stretches back to the 1960s with a canned cheddar cheese spread supplied to the military.
In May 1988 the company broke industry ground with the first American-developed FDA-approved bag-in-box system for low-acid aseptics a system later adapted to aseptically fill 55-gal bag-in-drums.
In 1990 Amboy shook things up again this time with an aseptic pouching system to produce pouches from 49 to 107 oz the largest size a #10 can replacement. One connection between that machine and its latest aseptic poucher is that project manager Kevin Gallagher a corporate engineer now with the Dean Foods Technical Center had headed the startup of the previous poucher a decade earlier. In providing a variety of ready-to-serve cheese sauces puddings and specialty sauces for foodservice and food ingredient markets Amboy lays claim as the largest low-acid aseptic manufacturing operation in North America.
