JBT HPP Seminars to visit Japan and Brazil

The advantages of using JBT Avure’s innovative High Pressure Processing (HPP) solutions for food and beverage processors, which can extend shelf-life and neutralize harmful bacteria without compromising on flavor or product quality, will be highlighted at HPP seminars in Japan and Brazil in late October-early November for both existing and new customers. 

The JBT Technical Seminar, ‘HPP – How it Works’, which earlier in October visited Melbourne, Australia, will focus on both current applications – juice, beverages and dairy – and newer success stories, including ready-to-eat and minimally processed foods.

Customers in Tokyo, Japan will have the chance to learn about the benefits of HPP on October 25 at the JASSO Center in Odaiba, where the event will feature customer success stories and an update on applications and packaging requirements from JBT Avure’s Dr. Errol Raghubeer.

On November 6, the Seminar will move to the Hotel Comfort Suites, Campinas, Brazil where delegates will hear about the potential of HPP technology to help food processors develop clean label products with an extended shelf life. Speakers will include Willie Brand, CEO of HPPSA, the biggest HPP tolling center in South Africa.

JBT will be using its presence at the Fruit Attraction 2019 trade exhibition, which takes place in Madrid, Spain from October 22-24, to highlight recent innovations for the fresh produce sector, as part of an overall portfolio of solutions aimed at supporting the whole supply chain.

A quick-drying wax capable of maintaining fruit freshness and flavor, Quick Dry Poly Supreme is the result of advanced coatings research and cutting-edge technology.

The Endura-Fresh line of coatings and the Freshgard® decay control range can help improve product appearance, shelf-life, and guard against weight loss. These solutions are not only effective, but also benefit from an unequalled worldwide support network.

Building momentum
At Fruit Attraction, John Siddle, JBT’s Global Product Line Director for Fresh Produce Technologies, says JBT will focus on creating awareness that JBT can now offer solutions for almost the whole fresh produce sector; a proposition that has recently increased with the integration of fresh-cut machinery specialist FTNON and packaging innovator Proseal. In fact, Fruit Attraction 2019 will mark the first time that Proseal will be exhibiting as an integral part of JBT.

Siddle said: “Following success in the Middle East and North Africa, JBT is aiming to build momentum for its portfolio in the Spanish and European markets, with a particular focus on fruit coasting and postharvest systems, as well as the ability of FTNON and Proseal tray sealing solutions to turn commodities into value-added products.”

JBT’s booth will once again this year feature the participation of Laser Food, creator of Natural Branding® laser-labelling technology. “Large European distribution chains demand from their suppliers methods that are more respectful of the environment and, above all, that they provide alternative packaging solutions to plastic, so what better packaging can there be than the fruit’s own skin,” said Laser Food Managing Director Jaime Sanfelix.

JBT’s presence at Fruit Attraction 2019 comes after the company’s Fresh Produce Technologies (FPT) product line recently celebrated its 90th anniversary; a landmark achievement that serves to highlight the progress made by JBT in the produce sector over many years. “We’re excited about being in business for 90 years – it speaks to the quality of what we produce and the longevity of our organization,” adds Siddle. “Our technical expertise has allowed us to adapt to the changing needs of the produce sector.”

JBT launches Hygienic Piping System Provider Buyers Guide


JBT has introduced a free-of-charge Hygienic Piping System Provider Buyers Guide, which aims to walk customers and non-customers alike through the process of acquiring new solutions with the focus on avoiding all-too-common pitfalls. The guide, The Top 10 Questions To Ask When Choosing a Hygienic Piping System Installation Provider, will discuss the key questions and factors that need to be considered before making a decision.

Buck Evers, Director of Field Services at JBT’s A&B Process Systems, says the guide was put together to give companies a valuable resource before and during the decision making process, outlining steps that should be taken and hazards that must be avoided. “The guide is designed to help companies in making the buying decisions because it looks at the process from a customer’s perspective, outlining the questions they need to ask to make a decision,” he explains.


“If you only look at price and don’t consider other factors, you could end up with a supplier that doesn’t have the experience, the certifications or the safety performance to execute a job or hit the budget,” Evers continues. “The total cost of selecting a low price could be higher because companies can end up paying through accidents or having to change orders during the project. Poor quality can also have repercussions later where companies are forced to make corrections because the suppliers weren’t skilled enough.”

From a JBT perspective, Evers says that one of JBT’s key strengths is that the company provides ongoing support during the lifetime of the system or machinery, ensuring piece-of-mind should mishaps occur. “Supporting customers long-term through JBT’s customer care program means we can stand behind them,” he adds.

JBT and TORR Industries confirm global alliance for filling technologies

Red wine tasting

JBT and California-based TORR Industries Inc. have announced an alliance aimed at bringing TORR’s versatile fillers to companies handling everything from wines and juices to coffee concentrates all across the globe.

The non-exclusive Sales Representation Agreement will give JBT the opportunity to represent TORR’s low and high-acid aseptic and sanitary liquid filling systems for bags, pouches, and bulk-containers with fill fitments globally. The alliance covers applications for products within the liquid foods, fruit and vegetable, dairy, wine, tomato sauce, and ready-to-eat sauce categories. 

Based in Shasta County, Northern California, TORR is the leader in high output wine bag fillers in the US market, but with an international presence that includes installations for coconut milk in Malaysia and crushed pineapple in the Philippines.

TORR filling systems will allow JBT to offer filling systems that can be used with Bag-in-Box (size ranging between 2 and 25 liters), stand-up pouches (size ranging between 0.175 to 5 liters) and bulk containers (size ranging from 200 to 1400 liters) with a wide range of filling speeds. TORR filling systems will complement JBT’s sanitary fillers for HPP products and will also fill the gap between JBT’s retail and bulk filling offerings.

Increased shelf life
A recent major success for TORR has been the supply of Bag-in-Box fillers to Delicato Family Wines in Manteca, California. for their “Bota Box” three-liter Bag-in-Box package. TORR installed seven TORR 150 fillers at the new Manteca 770,000 sq. ft winery and distribution center in the first quarter of 2019. Delicato placed additional orders in August for two more fillers for the new 1.5-liter Bag-in-Box line. 


“Delicato chose TORR over international competition because of TORR’s patent pending filling heads that provide increased shelf life because of low oxygen pickup during filling,” said TORR Sales Director, Chris Rutter. “The servo powered fillers also provide high uptime and low maintenance cost.”

TORR fillers, which include automatic bag into box loading at up to 25 bags per minute, are used for dairy, coffee concentrates and fruit juices. TORR also offers the Engi-O range of FDA LONO-approved aseptic bag fillers for up to 1500-liter bins, 200-liter drum and 20-liter bags for foodservice. The company is currently installing four Engi-O AM5 low acid aseptic fillers that fill bins, drums and foodservice bags at a major producer in the US Pacific North West for fruit and vegetable purees. International installations of the TORR Engi-O low acid aseptic fillers include coconut milk in Malaysia, crushed pineapple in the Philippines and dairy products in New Zealand.
