Trust Garden Leader International Business Co., Ltd.'s (TGL) latest FDA approval gives the company's aseptic PET neutral and alkaline beverages the green light for import into the US.

With this news, TGL is going a step beyond by also applying for the FDA SID product number that would allow its customers' products to be distributed within the US. This service is also available to customers that desire to work with TGL in an ODM capacity. The latest batch of FDA SID beverages(bubble tea drinks) arrived the US and enter the market on April, 2022.

TGL was established in 2008 in Chiayi City, Taiwan, and has since developed into a highly proficient beverage manufacturer in Asia. Apart from its brand of drinks, the company manufactures other highly differentiated and beverages for its OEM customers. Customers only need to provide their drink formulations, which TGL follows accordingly to meet their unique needs. ODM customers also need to provide their target drink samples, and TGL will develop one exclusive formula for ODM customers in the USA market.

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) drinks are produced using aseptic PET technology. It involves filling the beverage into PET bottles at 25 degrees Celsius shortly after exposure to high sterilizing temperatures. As the exposure is done briefly, this method preserves the raw nutrients more efficiently while ensuring the fresh taste of the drink.

Recycling leadership to meet the highest standards

In order to be approved for food contact, recycled plastics such as PET must meet increasingly stringent quality criteria that lead to more demanding recycling processes. At the same time, the demand for high-quality PET recyclates is increasing because legal requirements and voluntary commitments of leading brand manufacturers demand a higher use of recyclates in the end products.

"Due to the rigorous demands of PET drink production, the number of sterile PET neutral or alkaline beverages supplier remain very less", says Peter Lu, CEO of TGL. "We believe this is where we can make a difference."

The founder of TGL devoted over two decades to aseptic bottle technology knowing the benefits beverages prepared with aseptic management are nutritionally better preserved and more conducive to human health. He recognized that despite the huge undertaking of producing hospital-grade sterile beverages, it is a responsibility the company owes to its customers.
