The Initial CleanPouch Aseptic System Installation

The initial installation location for this new system is at Wright Foods, Troy, North Carolina, USA. Wright Foods is a state-of-the-art, aseptic food processing and co-packing company. Scholle IPN and Wright Foods have received a letter of non-objection (LONO) from the FDA on the initial installation of the CleanPouch Aseptic System.

David Bellmore, Director of Technology for Scholle IPN, said about the CleanPouch Aseptic System, “We’ve utilized nearly fifty years of aseptic packaging know-how to create this new system. From the outset of design, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, rapid prototyping, and extensive testing through the prototyping phase were keys to development. The knowledge gained from our in-market success with the SureFill line of aseptic bag-in-box packaging has helped prove out our process and gives us the utmost confidence that this system will deliver aseptically-processed products safely, naturally, economically, and sustainably.”

John Knapp, Executive Vice President of AmeriQual Group, parent company of Wright Foods, explained, “Our mission is to exceed customer expectations for product quality and service. As leaders in production of aseptically-processed and packaged products, we are extremely excited to be able to offer our customers a truly-innovative packaging format that fits into the trends we’re all seeing in the marketplace.”

“Clearly consumers are continuing to demand this type of innovation as the spouted pouch format is so prevalent on store shelves today,” stated Peter Messacar, Director of New Applications for Scholle IPN. “As a decades-long leader in aseptic flexible packaging, customers have come to us to help them produce their freshest products possible. Separating the complexity and risk of pouch making from production operations affords our customers the ability to focus on what they do best. The CleanPouch Aseptic System is our answer to the market’s call.”
