An offer dedicated to market requirements: food safety with certified gases
Air Liquide, a pioneer in the food industry field thanks to a rigorous and certified industrial management system – anticipated the health regulations applied to food gases and now offers standards that go beyond the required norms.
Our food grade gases comply with traceability requirements and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) standards for the production and logistics of fluids intended for the food industry with ISO 22000 certification. HACCP is a system that identifies, assesses and controls significant food safety hazards. Our food grade gases meet very strict specifications, beyond the required criteria, and their traceability is ensured throughout the distribution chain.
Carbonated soft drinks
Soft drinks owe their bubbles to the process of carbonation: a physical process by which a liquid is enriched with carbon dioxide. A beverage ingredient in its own right, our food grade carbon dioxide meets the quality and traceability requirements of large multinationals, thanks to an FSSC 22000 certification program covering all our carbon dioxide plants. Our food grade mixtures, specially designed for carbonation, bring you the guarantee of quality and traceability that you need, in compliance with European regulations and standards specific to the beverage industry such as FSSC 22000 and ISBT.
Controlling oxidation is essential in the production of non-carbonated beverages. Our dissolved oxygen management solutions allow the injection of nitrogen at different stages of the manufacturing process to thus preserve the quality of beverages, in particular their vitamin content. Air Liquide has developed solutions to efficiently achieve optimal production of beverages such as water, juices, tea and coffee.
- Our offering includes certified gases for beverages (such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen), as well as equipment and services for handling gases.
- From oxygen management to packaging optimization, we offer a wide range of solutions to help meet your needs.
Air Liquide also provides food-grade nitrogen systems and services to coffee shops around the world to enable them to dispense rich, creamy nitro coffee.
