Newest additions to JBT family on show at Gulfood Manufacturing 2017

Gulfood Manufacturing 2017, which takes place from 31 October-2 November in the Dubai World Trade Centre, has long been a major exhibition for JBT Liquid Foods, thanks to JBT’s tradition of strong relationships with regional customers. Moreover, it is located in a part of the world where there is a lot of innovation and development of processed and packaged food products.

As JBT’s Marcom Coordinator for Liquid Foods in the Europe and the Middle East, Patrick Schoenaers explains, Gulfood Manufacturing presents an opportunity to build further on existing relationships and to share its experience in food processing with customers.

“JBT Liquid Foods continues to grow every year in its capacity to offer complete line solutions from primary processing to final packaging, with a strong focus on product quality, food safety and extended shelf-life,” he says. “This year in particular we are pleased to present the latest additions to the JBT family – PLF International and Avure High Pressure Processing – as part of our complete solution.”

PLF International is one of the most recent additions to the JBT family

The recently acquired PLF International designs and manufactures what is considered to be one of the most flexible, hygienic, gentle and user-friendly powder filling machines – for rigid and semi-rigid containers – in the world. This innovative powder filling technology can be delivered as stand-alone equipment or as part of a fully integrated packaging line.

Avure’s High Pressure Processing is a natural method for food pasteurization that uses pure cold water, and up to 87,000 psi (6,000 bar) to inactivate pathogens, and dramatically extend shelf-life without the use of chemicals, heat or additives.

“High Pressure Processing makes foods delicious and labels clean and can be used for juices and beverages, meat, seafood and ready-to-eat meals, as well as fruits and vegetables,” adds Schoenaers. “So a visit to our booth is certainly a good investment!”

JBT will be exhibiting at Gulfood Manufacturing 2017 in Hall 1, D1-4 from 31 October-2 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Fresh’n Squeeze juicers to play starring role at HOST 2017

JBT’s Fresh’n Squeeze® Point-of-Sale juicer line will be the center of attention at JBT’s booth at the upcoming HOST 2017 trade exhibition, which takes place from October 20-24 in Milan, with the focus on highlighting the best – and newest innovations – from JBT’s juicer business. In addition to the Fresh’n Squeeze Citrus Juicer and Produce Plus Juicer, JBT will be showcasing the options offered by the Multi-Fruit Juicer to visitors to its stand.

A hugely important event for companies involved in the Horeca (Hotel/Restaurant/Café) sector, HOST is expected to draw significant numbers of attendees and exhibitors to Milan, Italy; a country where JBT already has a major presence.

Ignacio Elosua Gonzalez, JBT’s Area Sales Manager for Fresh’n Squeeze juicers in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, says JBT will be looking to highlight the capabilities of the Fresh’n Squeeze juicer portfolio to customers and potential new clients working in hotels, resorts and other industries associated with the Horeca sector.

“HOST is the most important exhibition for the Horeca business held in Europe, so for JBT, it is important to be there,” he explains. “The good thing about HOST is that is so well-known that we are expecting to receive opportunities from all over the continent, and of course the Italian market is important too because JBT has facilities in the heart of Italy, in Parma.”

JBT will be exhibiting at HOST 2017 in Pavilion 18, Stand H68 in Milan’s Fiera Milano conference center from October 20-24

JBT to showcase latest Fresh’n Squeeze innovation at Fruit Attraction

Spain’s Fruit Attraction trade fair, which takes place in Madrid from October 18-20, is one of the globe’s most important exhibitions for fruit and vegetable producers, traders and processors, with a particular emphasis – for obvious reasons – on companies from Spain and Latin America. For JBT, the show offers the opportunity to meet potential customers from around Europe and Latin America, especially those in the retail, foodservice and fruit production sectors.

This year, however, JBT will be giving special focus to its Multi-Fruit Juicer, which will feature a new modification developed by JBT’s Lakeland, Florida engineers, which has turned the unit’s standalone reservoir juicer into a self-service juicer.

As Ignacio Elosua, JBT’s head of sales for Fresh’n Squeeze® point-of-sale juicer line in Europe, explains, the innovation will help JBT reach a wider market than ever before, as the Multi-Fruit Juicer is now suitable for use in supermarkets and grocery outlets.

“In Europe, the demand for fresh orange juice machines in every supermarket is growing and there’s tough competition to cover this segment, but we believe the new version of the Multi-Fruit Juicer will give JBT a competitive edge,” he says.

Fresh solutions
But it’s not just Fresh’n Squeeze. JBT will be highlighting all of its liquid foods solutions for the fruit sector to visitors, which are designed to help producers to handle or process fruit more efficiently. “We have received many enquiries from customers concerned about the amount of fruit they have to handle or seeking to take advantage of lesser-quality products,” explains Elosua. “We believe that our fruit and vegetable solutions can help these customers deal effectively with these challenges.”

Looking at Fruit Attraction as a whole, Elosua says the show – one of the most important in the fresh produce sector – provides a great opportunity for JBT to expand beyond its core businesses and create new leads and opportunities.

“It’s commonly said that Spain is the pantry of Europe, meaning that many of the fruits and vegetables consumed in Europe come from Spain – we can say that is one of the most important markets for selling JBT solutions,” he adds.

JBT will be exhibiting at Fruit Attraction 2017 in Hall 6, Stand 6A02D from October 18-20 in Madrid’s Feria de Madrid (IFEMA) conference center.

JBT aims for brand boost in Russia

Despite a sizeable presence in Russia and the former Soviet Republics, JBT, as both a brand and a reliable, quality-focused supplier of systems and solutions for the global food and beverage processing industry, remains little known in the region. JBT’s presence as an exhibitor at this year’s Agroprodmash trade show, which takes place in Moscow’s Expocentre Fairgrounds from October 9-13, is aimed at changing this perception by driving awareness of JBT products and services.

Vitaly Igoshev, JBT’s Area Sales Manager (Russia and CIS) for Liquid Foods, says JBT will be looking to speak to juice, dairy, baby food companies and other food processors emphasizing new innovations and technologies that can help them take a greater share of the Russian market.

“The brand name awareness of JBT is weak in Russia and CIS, so we need our brands to be presented as much as possible,” says Igoshev, who adds that there is a a huge presence of global players in the country and growing local players, many of whom benefit from government subsidies.”

Liquid food products, with the focus on sterilization, filling, UHT and primary processing will be among the key systems being promoted at the exhibition, while JBT’s presence will also showcase protein and High Pressure Processing (HPP) solutions. “Many of our products are new for the Russian market, including HPP will be additionally highlighted to visitors,” Igoshev adds.

JBT will be exhibiting at Agroprodmash 2017 at Booth FE035, Moscow Expocentre Fairgrounds from October 9-13.

JBT brings new additions to Pack Expo 2017

JBT Corporation will be showcasing a wide range of innovative technologies and systems for liquid food and beverage processors at the upcoming Pack Expo 2017, which takes place in the Las Vegas Convention Centre from September 25-27.

The Fresh‘n Squeeze® Multi-Fruit Juicer will be one of the key products for the liquids foods sector on display at the show, with visitors able to sample fresh juice from the machine. Globally recognized as delivering the sweetest juice with the lowest peel oil and highest yield, the Multi-Fruit Juicer offers unparalleled reliability, performance and sanitary design.

One of the most recent additions to the JBT family, Avure Technologies, will also be on hand to showcase its High Pressure Processing (HPP) solutions; systems which are used in 60% of HPP systems worldwide thanks to their ability to extend shelf-life, as detailed in a new JBT White Paper.

Already being used by successful innovators, such as Pure Spoon – a baby food start-up now listed with Whole Foods and Kroger – HPP achieves food safety and extends shelf-life while providing consumers with nutritious, natural, flavorful food.

The JBT presence will also feature a look at the JBT JayBoT™, an inexpensive automated guided vehicle (AGV) system that enables companies to redeploy resources more effectively by removing repetitive and wasteful work practices.

Donn Sabato, JBT’s North America Director of Sales, explained that the focus of JBT’s participation would be on highlighting the full range of technologies and solutions that the company offers food and beverage processors, as well as highlighting the many new additions.

“We have new solutions and technologies to offer the customer base and they will be prominently displayed at the show,” he said. “Given JBT’s strategic focus and the promising opportunities with our FoodTech business we are focusing our efforts on growing this segment.”
