Bravo! Foods has signed a five-year agreement with a California company for production of its various lines of shelf-stable, single-serve flavored milk beverages. Aseptic Solutions USA, Corona, Calif., expects to receive FDA approval to produce aseptic low acid shelf-stable dairy products in HDPE plastic bottles by the year's end. The deal will complement Bravo's arrangement with Jasper Products, Joplin, Mo.

"This production agreement is a milestone event for the company as it substantially increases Bravo's contracted units capacity to close to 190 million units annually," says Roy Warren, Bravo's CEO. "In addition, the geographic location of Aseptic Solution's production facility on the west coast enhances our distribution capability as it compliments our current production capacity in the Midwest."
