Aseptia, Inc., is a food technology company that specializes in aseptic and related technologies. The company was founded in 2006. Its technology enables the preservation of food products that maintain freshness, flavors, nutrients, and taste without the use of additives or the need for refrigeration. The company also provides research and development services, such as product development that includes new product ideation, development of product formulations, feasibility analysis of new products, and ongoing product development support for existing lines; analytical evaluation, such as nutrient retention testing, shelf life testing, and sensory testing; and pilot testing.

The company's technology, which uses microwave energy to deliver rapid pasteurization and sterilization, was developed by a team of food researchers from North Carolina State University. The researchers created an aseptic process that delivered quality and shelf life for packaged foods while meeting strict FDA standards for food safety.

In 2012, Aseptia formed a subsidiary, Wright Foods, in Troy, NC. Wright Foods formulates and co-packs shelf-stable soups, purees and juices utilizing Aseptia's technology.


Process

Rapid, consistent heating is done to produce shelf-stable foods that retains the qualities of fresh foods for 12 months or more without preservatives or refrigeration. Continuous flow thermal processing technology is used to package fruit purees, juices, sauces, soups, and other products.

Services

Aseptia uses their expertise to help drive new product development, navigate the requirements of regulatory compliance, and optimize engineering processes for peak efficiency and quality control.
