JBT’s innovative solutions for fresh produce companies, including quick-dry coating solutions and industry-leading cleaning technologies, will be highlighted at the JBT stand as part of an increased presence at Fruit Attraction 2018, one of Europe’s premier trade events for the fresh produce sector.
Among the products highlighted will be JBT’s Endura-Fresh™ Quick Dry Poly (QDP) and Endura-Fresh™ Natural Supreme coatings for citrus. As well as being fast-drying, Endura-Fresh QDP provides a long-lasting shine that helps preserve the freshness and taste of the fruit.
The result of some 80 years’ research and development, Endura-Fresh Natural Supreme offers a cutting-edge citrus coating for superior control of fruit weight loss and shrinking, as well as providing a guaranteed shine from the packhouse to the end receiver.
As part of an increased stand size of 72m2 for this year’s show, JBT will also be highlighting the T-Series Bin Scrubber. A new variation on JBT’s original Bin Scrubber, the system provides efficient bin cleaning with a smaller footprint than alternative systems. New benefits include a telescoping brush scrubbing head to ensure all internal surfaces are cleaned, a bin rinse feature for non-vented bins, and a bin drying stage also for non-vented bins.
JBT’s move into solutions for the fresh-cut and pre-prepared fruit and vegetable industry through FTNON, the recently-acquired equipment specialist for the fresh produce, ready meal, and pet food sectors, will also be highlighted at the show.
FTNON specialises in a range of solutions for fresh-cut fruits and salads – known as IV Gama and V Gama in Spain – as well as lines for processors of vegetables such as broccoli, green beans, spinach and other products. The company, which has a presence in more than 60 countries, specialises in a range of state-of-the-art technology for fresh-cut and vegetable processors, including pre-cleaning, produce preparation and mixing systems.
JBT and Laser Food will also present Natural Branding© technology, the innovative and eco-friendly solution for the contactless marking of fruits and vegetables with natural light. The perfect alternative to regular paper stickers, Natural Branding eliminates paper, glue and ink on organic produce.
JBT will be exhibiting at Fruit Attraction 2018 in Hall 6, Stand 6C05 at the Feria de Madrid exhibition centre, Madrid, Spain from October 23-25.
