JBT Corporation will be present in China this week as part of the SGF-IFU Asia Roadshow where delegates can find out more about ways in which fruit by-products can offer potentially lucrative business opportunities.
At the event, to be held in Xi’an’s Bell Tower Hotel on May 12, JBT sales manager David Qian will be detailing some of the options JBT offers for making good use of fruit waste, such as the READYGo™ d-LIMONENE system and T.A.S.T.E. Evaporator.
The READYGo™ d-Limonene system in particular enables companies to recover valuable d-Limonene– a citrus oil ingredient which has a variety of uses from cleaning to cosmetics to flavoring – without having to make a significant capital investment.
According to Qian, the Roadshow, which will also take in visits to Thailand, Japan and Dubai, is designed for quality, R&D and production managers, as well as for purchasing and sales managers of juice processing and bottling industries.
“The objective of the Roadshow is to get closer contact to Asian juice producers, to explain the control activities of SGF, an international organization responsible for raw material control, and to give the participants an opportunity to discuss issues related to the juice industry with the relevant speakers,” he said.
Mr. Pier Luigi Prati, application manager for FJS, will be co-presenting the session in China and will be also taking the lead for JBT at the Roadshow’s Thailand date in June. JBT’s Tanaka Masaaki will be speaking at the following event in Japan in September.
JBT’s José Lorente, who will be on hand at the events in Japan and Dubai, said the Roadshow provided JBT with an opportunity to talk about the company’s products and experience.
“We will be talk about JBT as a supplier of technologies for processing fruits, vegetables and juices, as well as highlighting future projects that will be focused on sustainability,” he said.
