About Tru Aseptics LLC

Clean label.
Shelf stable.

“Clean label” is no longer a trend – it’s the rule! And it’s a challenge as consumers demand more natural ingredients and retailers expect a long shelf life. So we did our homework! TRU Aseptics delivers safe, high-quality, shelf-stable products that do not require preservatives, artificial ingredients, or refrigerated storage and distribution. Clean-label food products that are good for people, good for the planet and TRU to Nature™.
