JBT will be highlighting an innovative venture for recovering essential citrus oils from peel, and examining how JBT Avure has helped support a fast-growing Florida HPP business at a customer seminar taking place in Lakeland, Florida on November 1.
JBT customer Keith Sirois, from HPP Fresh Florida, will be detailing how clean technology from High Pressure Processing (HPP) specialist JBT Avure has helped support the development of a company that now pasteurizes products including meat, seafood, juice, salsa, hummus and dips from across the state.
The recovery of high value essential oils from citrus processing by-products will also be a focus for the seminar with a session looking at a new venture with Florida-based Florachem. A specialist in essential oil recovery itself, JBT already helps customers extract valuable d-Limonene from citrus peel through its READYGo™ d-LIMONENE solution.
Other topics that will be covered at the seminar will include a look at JBT’s most recent addition, FTNON, a company that has developed innovative technology for processing fresh fruits and vegetables for the fresh-cut and ready-to-eat market, plus an overview of JBT’s fresh produce and citrus processing systems.
