Fruit and vegetable processing
Successful, profitable production of juices, purées and other beverages based on fruit and vegetables depends on a delicate balance between maintaining the quality, flavour and colour associated with the source crop, and complying with hygiene standards and health and safety requirements, while ensuring that production costs are kept as low as possible. Equipment, systems, know-how and service from Alfa Laval help you achieve and maintain this crucial balance.
Alfa Laval core technologies play a central role in separating, concentrating, heating and cooling the pulp, fibre, juice and water content of the juices and purées derived from fruit and vegetables. Our unique capabilities make it possible to do this with less waste, lower energy consumption and more effective recovery of revenue-generating by-products.
The innovative advantage
Alfa Laval has a proud tradition of providing fruit and vegetable processing operations with advanced-technology opportunities. Alfa Laval invented aseptic processing (UHT), and we have had a business unit dedicated solely to fruit processing requirements for well over half a century.
In the high-volume processing of juices and purées for world commodity markets, Alfa Laval technological innovation can therefore provide you with a key advantage in getting – and keeping – ahead.
