JBT’s renewed focus on Customer Care and cutting-edge primary and further processing technologies will be key elements of the JBT presence at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) 2020, which takes place in Atlanta, Georgia from January 28-30.

This year’s edition will see JBT bring a total of three booths to IPPE, comprising two, adjacent 5,000 sq ft booths: one focusing on raw product handling and the other on further processing, as well as a standalone site for one of the most recent additions to the JBT family, Prime Equipment Group.

JBT Avure, the specialist in High Pressure Processing (HPP), will further augment the JBT presence with the participation of Avure’s Dr Errol Raghubeer in the 2020 IPPE TECHTalks. Dr Raghubeer, who has been involved in novel food processing technologies for over 25 years, will deliver a presentation examining High Pressure Pasteurization where ultra-high pressure purified water is used to keep packaged food pathogen-free to stay fresh longer. Foods processed in this way include everything from ready meals through to salads, seafood, fruits and vegetables, and baby food.

JBT to showcase combined nut solutions at 2020 PTNPA Convention

Mixed Nuts_123rf

JBT will be showcasing its ability to deliver combined, turnkey pasteurization and roasting solutions across the nut category at the North American industry’s biggest event of the year, the Peanut & Tree Nut Processors Association (PTNPA) Convention 2020, which will be held from January 17-20 in Orlando, Florida. 

Unlike roasting in traditional dry conditions, the benefit of combined pasteurization and roasting through JBT’s JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System is that it enhances product quality, explains JBT Manager of Technology and Process Development, Ramesh Gunawardena. Drying in a controlled-humidity environment rather than a completely dry environment also takes a shorter time, meaning that throughput is increased at the same time.

The turnkey element comes into play, continues Gunawardena, because differences between nut types mean treatment and conditions have to be very different, explaining that too much heat can damage certain types of nuts. “We want to pasteurize the surface, not cook the product,” he says. However, irrespective of the process, Gunawardena emphasizes that JBT has the shortest pasteurization and drying times in the industry and as a result can ensure a smaller carbon footprint for customers.

Emerging trends
The ability to roast, as well as pasteurize, all sorts of nuts from peanuts to almonds are strong trends in the industry, driven by practical as well as economic reasons. “These are emerging trends in the food business where processors can add value through roasting and introducing different blends or seasonings to enhance the mouth feel,” says Gunawardena. “JBT has developed treatment zones that deliver clean and dry products irrespective of the nut, which we combine with being able to offer a turnkey solution and attractive financing.

“What is new is we have added new nuts to the list of products that can be handled by our pasteurization and roasting solution, namely pecans and macademias.”

Gunawardena also stresses JBT’s ability to overcome any potential pitfalls due to the lack of an official mandate governing nut processing in the US. “JBT already follows validated, best practice protocols in the almond industry, meaning we can help ensure companies are already compliant on the day a mandate does come into force,” he says. “If and when the regulatory change takes place, we already have proven processes similar to those in the almond industry that is now being used by nut processors to deliver a safe product.”

JBT will be showcasing the JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System and the JSP-C Compact at Booth 33 at the PTNPA Convention 2020, which takes place at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida from January 17-20, 2020.

From pasteurization to roasting: JBT highlights solutions at Almond Conference

almonds_123rf

JBT is highlighting the combined roasting and pasteurization capabilities of a solution specially developed for the almond industry – the JBT Stein JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System (JSP-I) – at this month’s edition of the annual California almond industry showcase, The Almond Conference, which takes place in Sacramento until December 12.

JBT’s Stein JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System Compact delivers a pathogen-free product without altering the essential raw-like flavor and appearance. Ensuring gentle product handling with no skin damage, the JSP-I has been developed for high temperature, short-time pasteurization with a reliable, repeatable and consistent reduction of harmful bacteria.

However, at this year’s conference, JBT will be highlighting another inbuilt capability – roasting – which will help customers meet international demand without having the switch systems. “We are opening up the capabilities of the machine, including recently testing roasting nuts for a customer through the pasteurizer, meaning they can carry out pasteurization and roasting in the same machine,” Harlan explains.

“Some customers want to be able to sell roasted almonds – they want roast color and roast flavor to the nuts – and we are able to do that with the JSP-I, whether that’s the small compact version or the large size, they have the same capability.”

JBT will be exhibiting at Booth 505 at The Almond Conference, which takes place at the Cal Expo center, Sacramento, California, until December 12.

JBT ready for Morocco’s poultry industry showcase

Sunrise over Casablanca, Morocco

JBT will be showcasing its innovative solutions for the poultry industry at the largest event of its kind for the sector in Morocco – Dawajine 2019 – which takes place in the city of Casablanca from November 26-28. The three-day exhibition covers every aspect of poultry processing from farming equipment through to processing, cooking, coating and packaging; all areas in which JBT is well represented.

As Kalid Saou, JBT’s Area Sales Manager for North Africa, explains, what sets Dawajine apart from other trade events of its ilk is the fact that it gives a real representation of the integrated nature of the poultry industry in Morocco; an industry where the company supplying the animal feed is often the same company doing the farming and the processing.

Kalid Saou says JBT will be taking the opportunity of having a presence at the show to highlight existing solutions for further processing, including the GYRoCOMPACT, which can efficiently freeze everything from pan fried chicken through to raw chicken breast and other pieces, as well as Schröder massaging technology and injectors, the industry standard for performance, consistency and reliability. 

JBT will also be highlighting one of the newest members of the JBT family, Prime Equipment Group, which became part of the company in June 2019. A manufacturer of turnkey primary and water re-use solutions to the poultry industry, Prime Equipment offers everything from quality control to chilling, deboning, skinning and portioning.

“Morocco is an important market for JBT and in terms of the poultry industry, it is really growing,” says Kalid Saou. “JBT has so many solutions we can provide to support poultry processors, from coating and cooking through to frying and freezing, that we will be highlighting at the show.”

JBT will be exhibiting in Hall 2, Stand 133 at Dawajine 2019, which takes place at the International Center for Conferences and Exhibitions of the Exchange Office, Casablanca, Morocco from November 26-28, 2019.

JBT will be highlighting its ability to deliver effective cooking solutions as well as upcoming innovations that will help ensure juicer and higher yielding end products at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing 2019 trade exhibition, which takes place in Dubai’s World Trade Center from October 29-31. Cooking solutions will form just one element of a complete portfolio being presented by JBT that will also include innovative tray sealing and x-ray technologies.

Ahead of JBT’s participation at the event, Roland Collet, JBT Regional Sales Manager for the Middle East and Africa, explained that the focus would be on highlighting the breadth of JBT solutions on offer, including High Pressure Processing (HPP) from JBT Avure; a clean label pasteurization system which can deliver positive benefits for product quality and shelf-life.

The JBT booth at Gulfood Manufacturing will also feature some of the newest additions to the JBT family, including tray-sealing specialist Proseal, as well as more established solutions from JBT Schöder – a globally recognized provider of injection and marination systems. 

One area of special focus at this year’s show, however, will be JBT’s cooking solutions, according to Collet. “We are seeing more and more demand for fully cooked products, so we are developing a combined cooking solution, which will bring together contact cooking and the JBT impingement oven to get a juicier and higher yield end product,” he said.

“JBT has been in the Middle East for over 30 years now and we have more than 200 customers around the region, so this is a great opportunity for us to welcome the customers in a very easy place to reach,” Collet added.

JBT will be exhibiting in Hall 4, Stand D4-44 at Gulfood Manufacturing 2019, which takes place at Dubai’s World Trade Centre from October 29-31.
