A brief history of Minims

 

 

Minims Manufacture

There are two manufacturing methods employed across the Minims range.

Most of the range is end sterilised by autoclave while some products are manufactured in a fully aseptic process.

The differing manufacturing processes require separate final packaging formats.



Aseptic sachet

Four products are manufactured in an end to end fully aseptic process. A sachet preserves product sterility to the point of use.

2017 — Cristal 1 filling capacity to 7,400 Minims per hour

Refrigerated Minims
