ASEPTs history, from humble beginnings in the mid-1980s to a leading provider of sealed dispensing systems for food and non-food products worldwide.

Pioneers in Sealed Dispensing Systems

Since the mid-1980s, ASEPT has been at the forefront of developing sealed dispensing systems that prevent contamination and spoilage caused by open-container food systems. The combination of fitment and pump attached to air-free pouches, designed by a pair of Swedish entrepreneurs and inventors, became ASEPT’s signature feature. Their sealed dispensing system became the go-to solution for global food processors, restaurant chains and independents in the foodservice and personal care industries.
