KanPak U.S. (KanPak), a leading supplier of beverages and desserts using aseptic processing technology and a subsidiary of Golden State Foods (GSF), recently hosted the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of a new warehouse in Arkansas City, Kansas. The 202,800-square-foot facility will store an array of finished and raw goods, including ingredients and packaging materials.
KanPak partnered with Arco Construction to complete the $11 million project in less than a year. The new facility, which brings 20 new jobs to Arkansas City, will service all KanPak customers, including Chick-fil-A, Whataburger, Tim Hortons, QuikTrip and Perrigo.
KanPak offers unique processing of dairy products, allowing all product to be kept at ambient temperature. The heat treatment and packaging kills enough bacteria so that milk, or similar products like soft serve ice cream mix, won't spoil for extended periods of time (months or even years).
