Today’s consumers have a growing thirst for healthier and more natural beverages. To meet their increasing demands, beverage companies must continuously develop new and innovative products without driving up their production costs. These developments require enhancing the product’s quality by improving its organoleptic and nutritional properties and, subsequently, the shelf life as well as improving the cost efficiency of the production process with a particular focus on optimizing the packaging and formulation or recipe costs.
Whatever your needs, Nexelia for Oxygen Management offers you a complete range of solutions to achieve the lowest dissolved oxygen levels for your products in order to enhance product quality and optimize productivity.
