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 Chinese dairy market is growing by double digits every year. Part of the growth plan of JBT Liquid Foods in the Asia Pacific region is based around the fast-developing demand for dairy products in China. As the sector experiences dynamic growth, so too has demand for effective machinery and processing systems also increased; opening a clear market advantage for the specialist, innovative solutions offered by JBT.

This is one of the key messages that JBT will be outlining to visitors to its booth at the upcoming China Dairy Technology Boutique Exhibition, a major event for the sector which takes place in the city of Xi’an from August 24-26. Now in its eighteenth year, the show, organized by the China Dairy Industry Association, aims to showcase forward-looking technology product innovation ideas and achievements from machinery and technology suppliers worldwide.


Robert Geerts, Manager of Sales – Food & Dairy Systems for Asia Pacific at JBT, says the focus will be on highlighting the advantages of using JBT solutions for diary processing, in particular UHT processing, aseptic filling and the aseptic SteriTank.

“We are focusing on the awareness of JBT in the Chinese dairy market, and we are planning to do a show every couple of years to promote our dairy products,” Geerts continues.

“China is a very important market of JBT and will become even more important with the growth of extended shelf life products, so we’re pleased to be taking part in the show at Xi’an where we can speak to customers about our growth plans for the Chinese market.”

JBT will be exhibiting at Booth 64, Hall B4 at the China Dairy Technology Boutique Exhibition in the Qujiang International Convention and Exhibition Center, Xi’an from August 24-26, 2018.

JBT highlights HPP at Asia events


JBT Avure at ProPak Asia

JBT is taking part in two major Asian trade exhibitions this month – Fooma Japan in Tokyo from June 12-15 and ProPak Asia in Bangkok, Thailand from June 13-16  – where the company will be highlighting recent innovations for food and beverage processors. These will include the benefits of High Pressure Processing (HPP) from JBT Avure, which was also the subject of a special seminar held in Bangkok.

Fooma Japan 2018 – the international food machinery and technology exhibition – takes place at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition halls, while the annual processing and packaging technology event for Asia, ProPak Asia 2018, will be staged at Bangkok’s BITEC conference center.

The advantages of using HPP for seafood, premium juice, dairy, wet salad and other industries in Asia will be one of the principal focuses for JBT at the two events, where representatives will be outlining how the technology is being used to provide food safety and extend shelf life, while also retaining vitamins, nutrients and flavor.

JBT will be exhibiting at Fooma Japan 2018 from June 12-15 at Booth 5P-16 at Tokyo Big Sight and at ProPak Asia 2018 from June 13-16 in BA21, Hall 100 at Bangkok’s BITEC center.

JBT Avure will be highlighting the potential benefits of High Pressure Processing (HPP) for Asia’s seafood, wet salads, meat, dairy, ready meals, and premium juice industries at a special seminar to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on June 12 aimed at driving awareness of the technology in the region.

JBT’s HPP Asia Seminar, which will be staged at Bangkok’s DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, will examine how HPP is already being used successfully by processors across North America and Europe, focusing on how the technology provides food safety and extends shelf life while retaining the vitamins, nutrients and flavor.

Dave Peltier, JBT Avure’s Director of Sales for Asia and South America, explains that given the relative lack of knowledge in Asia about the successful utilization of HPP in other regions, the market for the technology in Asian countries is still emerging. The HPP seminar, which will coincide with the ProPak Asia trade fair in Bangkok where JBT is also exhibiting at Booth BA21 Hall 100, provides a convenient way of presenting the concept to Asian food companies attending the exhibition.

Some 70+ people, including several companies who already use HPP, will be attending the event which is aimed at introducing the system as an alternative to UHT and other processes; and one in which nutrients, safety and shelf life quality are not compromised.

Seafood is an especially important application for HPP in Asia, as well as many of the other applications such as juices, meat, guacamole, salsa, dips and salad dressings,” says Peltier, who adds that JBT Avure already has several installations in Thailand, South Korea and Taiwan.

“Avure will update in detail the current state of HPP product applications and successes globally,” he concludes.

d-Limonene: extracting added value from waste citrus peel

Zumos Palma 2

Citrus waste disposal is a problem faced by many citrus juice plants, which up until recent times has left companies with the dilemma of whether to invest in costly feed mills. However, there is an alternative. JBT has developed several effective ways to get added value from waste citrus peel and by-products, with some offering very substantial financial benefits.

Exploring some of the alternatives to traditional citrus peel disposal is the focus of a JBT seminar to be delivered at the forthcoming 2018 Citrus Engineering Conference, which takes place on June 7 at the Citrus Research & Education Center Lake Alfred, Florida.

In a talk on alternatives to traditional feed mills, Jose Biot, JBT’s Global Technical Manager for Citrus Processing, will focus on some of the innovative options available from JBT for the recovery of potentially valuable by-products from citrus peel.

Valuable essential oils can be extracted from waste citrus peel

Waste solution
Biot will tell delegates that traditional methods for disposing of waste citrus peel, such as feed mills, have become significantly less attractive over recent years due to rising energy operating costs required for investment in such projects. 

In particular, for small processors who generate peel volumes below the threshold typically required to make a feed mill investment profitable, taking care of the wet peel becomes a problem, with many resorting to paying to have it trucked out.

JBT’s T.A.S.T.E. Evaporator and, especially, READYGo™ d-LIMONENE are two systems that can be used by small processors to make more profitable use of citrus waste by extracting essential oils and other products from the peel.


JBT’s READYGo d-Limonene

d-Limonene, a natural organic solvent used in aroma industry and other sectors, is one of the most lucrative by-products of the citrus extraction process.

The oil component can be collected from leftover peel without having to make a significant investment using the JBT READYGo™ d-LIMONENE recovery unit; a system that boasts up to a 95% recovery efficiency rate.

The systems, Biot will say, enable small processors to handle a sticky problem through an interesting solution, which – in the case of the JBT READYGo d-Limonene system– can provide substantial revenues at current market prices.
