Awareness of sustainable issues is growing across the globe, but can manufacturers improve their records while making savings and becoming more competitive? This is the key question JBT will be looking to answer at Gulfood Manufacturing 2021, the trade exhibition that takes place from November 7-9 in Dubai, UAE.
Taking part on a ONE JBT booth, with representatives from both Diversified Food & Health and Protein Processing present, JBT will be highlighting our ability to partner with customers to deliver sustainable value creation throughout the whole production cycle. From project/line specification and definition through design, implementation and installation, transfer of ownership to maintenance, JBT has all the tools to help customers, including PRoCARE Service Agreements, joined connectivity systems, remote PRoSIGHT support, training, and technology centers.
But more than this, JBT will also showcase Avure High Pressure Processing (HPP) clean-technology systems capable of boosting shelf-life for a range of products, including high-quality snacking dishes, such as hummus, which enjoy great popularity across the Middle East.
“Customers are increasingly asking for sustainable solutions because food regulations are becoming more stringent on a whole range of issues from CO2 to waste water and energy consumption, and there’s an awareness these need to be reduced,” explains JBT’s Ben Verbeeck.
“The message we will be bringing to Gulfood Manufacturing is that we can look at a company’s production lines and determine where sustainable improvements and savings can be made, such as through lowering energy consumption.
“We also offer operational and cleaning training on how to maintain machines in an optimum condition, which leads to less wear and tear. We view sustainability as a partnership with the customer, through training and maintenance, where together we look at how we can make improvements.”
As well as HPP, the JBT booth will also feature live demonstrations of JBT Proseal’s GTR tray sealing machine, ideal for both smaller scale food enterprises and new product development. The fully-portable semi-automatic Proseal GTR now incorporates a new user-friendly HMI screen for even easier machine set up and operation.
Other recent JBT innovations set to be featured include the Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® 70 Spiral Freezer, the DSI® 844 Waterjet Portioning System, the AsepFlex™ Linear Pouch Filler, and the High speed UniFiller-Seamer. As well as meeting regular visitors, JBT has been selected for the Gulfood Manufacturing Innovation Tour, with twice-daily tours receiving an in-depth presentation of JBT´s trending innovations and showcased solutions.
