JBT Sterilization seminar wins plaudits from Thai food & drink sector

JBT Thai seminar 1

JBT Corporation has won praise from leading food and drink processors from across Thailand following its latest Sterilization Technical Seminar, which examined the ways in which JBT’s products and support network can effectively benefit manufacturers in the country.

Titled ‘Complete Solutions to an Optimized Sterilization Process’, the workshop covered a variety of JBT sterilization solutions for processors including batch, continuous rotary and continuous hydromatic systems, as well looking at the company’s process technology service.

JBT, which works closely with coffee, dairy, non-carbonated beverage and tuna processors in the country, used the seminar to focus on JBT’s Hydrostatic and Rotary Pressure sterilizers, as well as its fillers and seamers, and Automatic Batch Retort system.

Julien Vidus, preservation systems – manager of sales, JBT Asia Pacific, said: “Thailand is a very important market for JBT in South East Asia where we have a very strong local presence.

“Compared with our competitors, JBT has a far greater variety of sterilization technology available, thermal process expertise, and the capability to support our customers when it comes to FDA (US Food & Drug Administration) filing.”

Teerachart Yongmunkongkul, sales manager, JBT Thailand, added: “We would like to build awareness that we, JBT, are at the forefront of sterilization solutions through this marketing event. “We believe that the best technology brings you the best quality.”

Positive feedback
The seminar certainly found favour among attendees. Abdul Rahman Abd Aziz, a quality control executive from Etika Dairies who travelled from Malaysia to take part in the workshop, said he hoped JBT technology could help the company improve its productivity levels.

“As an evaporated cream manufacturer, we face some heat distribution during the sterilization process – although this does not affect the safety of the product, we would like to solve it to enhance our productivity,” he said.

“I flew directly from Malaysia to join the seminar because I would like to know more about the sterilization technology and I know I can learn a lot from JBT.”

Sanchai Nitheekulawat, procurement division manager at Green Spot Company, said: “The sterilization system is key to producing sterile soy milk products and JBT’s machine lets us produce safe food. The machine and parts are durable and the technology is reliable They are one of the key value elements of our supply chain.”

Watcharapong Boonnam, production manager at F&N Dairies (Thailand), added: “Hi-technology fillers, closers, the continuous sterilizer and the steam water spray from JBT helps us produce milk and beverages effectively. The critical issue for the thermal process is controlling the temperature.

“JBT’s temperature control technology complies with USFDA regulations and in the 15 years we have worked with them we have never had a single food safety issue during in the process.”

JBT citrus workshop to focus on juice yield gains

Araraquara workshop

JBT Corporation is staging a one-day Citrus Technical Workshop for its Brazilian customers and interested companies this week, which will demonstrate how JBT technology can help deliver 3% more high quality juice than was previously available.

The workshop, which will be held at JBT Araraquara on May 31, will focus on highlighting the latest technological developments for the sector from JBT, including systems designed to increase juice and lemon oil yields.

JBT’s Januário Soligon explains that the event will update customers and potential clients on new developments from JBT aimed at improving the yield and quality of juices, oils and pulps extracted from citrus fruits, particularly oranges and lemons.

The workshop will also look at how automation of citrus processing can improve performance and reduce labor costs, filtering systems, Stork sterilisation and aseptic filling technology for juices, citrus processing good practices, and systems for oil recovery that have shown outstanding results.

In addition, attendees will get the chance to visit JBT’s research, development and manufacturing facility, where they can learn more about the company’s quality control during the manufacturing process.

Outstanding results
As Soligon explains, JBT has already achieved outstanding results when it comes to improving juice quality and delivering effective lemon oil extraction technologies, with the company’s MORE (Modular Oil Recovery Equipment) extractor system having proven to be highly efficient.

JBT will also be introducing its READYGo™ d-LIMONENE unit for removing valuable d-Limonene oil, which has itself demonstrated vigorous results during testing.

On the juice side, JBT will be highlighting recently-developed new components that can be added to existing systems to deliver better juice yields.

“This is very important for the business – every 1% gain that you have in this business is a lot, so you are talking about huge volumes,” says Soligon. “Brazil produces a lot of juice – out of every five glasses of orange juice being consumed worldwide at any given time, three of those are likely to have been produced in Brazil.”

Araraquara workshop speaker

The workshop will also cover how companies can save on labor costs through increased automation on processing lines, as well as focusing on how JBT’s new finisher technologies can boost the amount of high quality juice produced.

“We have a finish automation system that can deliver a 3% gain in the amount of primary, high quality juice produced – this is something we are going to be introducing to the Brazilian market,” adds Soligon.

JBT’s Citrus Technical Workshop will takes place from 8am-6pm in Araraquara, Brazil. For more information, please contact: Januario.Soligon@JBTC.COM


JBT to focus on citrus processing excellence at Juiceful Istanbul


JBT Corporation will highlight the latest developments in its citrus processing and juice business during a visit to the upcoming Juiceful Istanbul 2016 conference; an event which is likely to draw attention to the growth of the sector in Turkey and the Middle East.

With JBT providing a range of options for citrus companies, from citrus juice extractors, finishers and aseptic systems through to innovative Fresh’n Squeeze® point-of-sale juicers, it is well-positioned to provide solutions for a fast-developing market.

Over the past decade, JBT has worked hard to establish its systems and solutions in the Turkish and Middle Eastern markets, and now counts some major players among its customer base, including Göknur, Dimes and Anadolu Etap.

Carlos Saavedra, global marketing manager for JBT’s Liquid Foods business, explains that Turkey and the Middle East are among the few global markets that are currently growing in terms of both citrus production and processing.

“The Middle East is one of the few growing markets in citrus production – from a relatively small base, but nevertheless it is still growing,” he says. “Egypt has grown over the past decade and Turkey has grown as well, and we’ve been pretty effective in gaining a share of those markets.”

“Turkey is a market that is growing in terms of citrus processing – we have some relatively new customers and a few others that we are talking to, so Juiceful Istanbul is an opportunity to see those new customers and new prospects,” Saavedra adds.

JBT’s Fresh’n Squeeze® Juicers set to make a splash at Restaurant Show


JBT’s innovative Fresh’n Squeeze citrus juicers will be showcased at the upcoming National Restaurant Show 2016, where the company will be highlighting the fact that the machine can deliver up to 50% more juice yield than its competitors.

This year, JBT will be present at the show, which takes place in Chicago, IL from May 21-24, together with its master distributor Juicernet, a company that specializes in supplying Fresh’n Squeeze juicers to supermarkets, juice bars, hotels and restaurants, among other outlets.

JBT Fruit Juice Account Manager, Jerry King, says JBT will be speaking to restaurants and hotel chains that are interested in providing fresh juice for their customers, as well as grocery retailers that are looking to open in-store juice bar kiosks.


Yield advantage
King explains that JBT will be focusing on highlighting the juice quality and high yield capabilities – two of the most sought-after features that the Fresh’n Squeeze juicers offer.

“The foundation of the Fresh’n Squeeze juicer is in our years of experience in citrus processing and extraction – with that technology, we are able to achieve anywhere from a 30-50% juice yield advantage over our competition, which is huge,” he says.

“If you are familiar with what juice yield can mean in terms of having to buy, store and handle less fruit, as well as the labor savings involved, there’s a lot of ways in which that benefits the user.”

Equally importantly, King says Fresh’n Squeeze juicers offer the best juice quality available in terms of peel oil content and the system’s ability to remove fruit core and seed material.

Unlike many rival systems, which King says can involve major adjustments depending on fruit size; Fresh’n Squeeze juicers are very versatile when it comes to handling all types and varieties of citrus fruit.

“Competitors machines are very size sensitive, so components have to be changed depending on the type of fruit, or separate machines have to be purchased – with our machine, the fruit size range is very open and no adjustments or separate components are required,” he adds.
