Cascata Packaging, West Valley, Utah, completed a multi-million dollar plant expansion to triple its tear-top pouch operation and launch its proprietary hot-fill, lap-seal, vertical stick-pack filling line.

Cascata’s expansion makes the company what is said to be the only flexible package contract manufacturer in the country to offer all four single-serve, flexible pouch options—tear-top, spouted pouch, juice pouch with straw and vertical stick pack.

“Some of the nation's leading retail brands have chosen to partner with Cascata for its diverse product offering and process capability,” says Asher Cameron, chief sales and marketing officer. “Cascata currently manufactures brands that are widely-distributed at retailers, including Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, Kroger and CVS. We are particularly excited about our most recent expansion, as it will enable Cascata to better serve the network marketing industry with the higher production volumes and quality it requires.”

“With the recent investments to expand our operation and add new capabilities, Cascata continues to strategically grow with our customer base while opening capacity to bring on new products and brands,” adds Bryan Wright, co-founder and CEO. “In the past three years, we have seen a significant shift in consumer demand for food, beverage and dietary supplements in flexible packaging. Our triple-tube, in-line pasteurization, coupled with our air-driven cooling tunnels makes our process capability unique in its quality and performance. Few operations can match our high standards in protecting taste, texture and nutrient composition while filling preservative-free. Seventy percent of our customer base has expanded their product lines with new flavors and pouch formats since they partnered with Cascata. It’s exciting to see our capabilities serve as a catalyst for growth as our customers expand their offerings.”
