JBT will be highlighting new developments, innovations and technologies – including those available for fresh-cut produce processors through recent acquisition FTNON – to fruit, dairy and protein specialists in Chile at a special seminar to be held on October 2.
The full-day ‘New Food Technology Seminar’, which will be staged in the city of Rancagua’s Hotel Manquehue, will cover a range of topics of interest to producers and processors, including aseptic pasteurization and sterilization, fresh fruit processing, and high-speed filling and sealing applications.
Cutting-edge technology will also be well represented in the form of laser labelling for fresh fruits and vegetables, the innovative Fog In Place (FIP) system for effective disinfection of production facilities, and a look at the benefits of JBT Avure’s High Pressure Processing (HPP) for pasteurization that preserves product quality. The innovative solutions offered by the newest addition to the JBT family, FTNON, will also be featured, with a special look at how FTNON technology can help companies in the fresh-cut produce and ready meal segments.
“The Idea is to bring new developments, innovations and technologies to the attention of customers and potential customers,” explains JBT’s Januário Soligon. “JBT works with a lot of big companies in Chile, including multinational food and beverage processors, from canned fruits though to tinned sardines, but the seminar is also open to delegates from neighbouring countries who would like to take part.”
