With healthy lifestyle becoming a mantra to the young generation. Natural fruit juices are packing a punch to ensure a large market share in the ever growing beverage segment. With a drastic shift in consumer preference due to increasing consciousness towards a healthy lifestyle promoting a new trend to stay away from Sugary drinks like Colas, the natural fruit juice segment is ready for a spiraling growth. This segment includes natural fruit juices, Isotonic and Teas. All above products have been the major reason of growth in the healthy lifestyle segment. It is projected that packaged fruit based beverages will drive future growth. The growth has been 14% globally and even more in markets like India. The packaged fruit juice segment ban be classified into three segments Fruit drink, Nectars and 100% juice which differ in bases of pulp content. The market is led currently by fruit drinks followed by Nectars and finally by 100% fruit juice. The global fruit juice industry is passed at 84 billion USD 100% fruit juice is at 26 billion USD (i.e) 30% of market. This market is expected to explode to 150 billion USD globally by 2020. Success in the Natural juice, Nectars, Isotonic (sport drinks) and Teas requires highest consistency, quality and maximized efficiency in production and minimum cost of production ensuring enhanced hygiene of the product. SEPPA supports you in achieving the above easily and comfortable with its advanced processing and packaging equipment and strong design engineering, manufacturing spare and service support. PET is the packaging of the current and near future. SEPPA helps you design, build and deliver the most impressive aesthetic bottle design and packaging along with an optimized production line from start to end, ensuring the lowest food plant, compact design and enhanced efficiency. SEPPA is always there with its immense experience to guide you with new market trends, demands and customer needs.
The world’s first expandable HPP machine is a master of economics, engineering, and good taste. Projecting production volume and choosing the right machine size is a big decision. Go small, and you may need to purchase another machine much sooner than you thought. Go big, and you get stuck with too much capacity.
4 reasons producers switch to high pressure pasteurization (HPP) machines.
High-pressure pasteurization (HPP) with seppa machines maintains freshness and preserves natural flavors of juices, meat, fruits, and vegetables better than any other processing method. And because it just uses pressurized, pure cold water, it bypasses texture and taste variations caused by heat, irradiation or chemicals. Thanks to media coverage of HPP, or high pressure pasteurization, customers are hunting down these products in stores.
Big stories in the media about contaminated food, listeria and salmonella have put consumers on high alert about food safety. High pressure processing, which works on water pressure alone, has a unique ability to inactivate microorganisms without chemicals or preservatives.
Grocers and restaurants love HPP for extending the shelf life, and cutting waste. Now it’s possible for many fruit and vegetable products, like vacuum-packed avocados, to last up to 30 days.
For 60 years, Seppa has installed more high pressure pasteurization systems and more HPP food systems than all of our competitors combined. That accumulated knowledge counts for a lot in a field as specialized as high pressure processing.
Seppa supplies electric pulsed field (EPF) systems to both the food and beverage industry, and the scientific sector. We offer industrial turnkey solutions and fully integrated systems under the brand name Seppa for EPF treatment of solids, semi solids and liquids.
Seppa has the answers for maximizing the effect of your raw materials and enhancing food quality and safety. We manufacture a range of industrial systems to meet our customer's production requirements. These turnkey solutions are fully integrated and modular systems for either cell disintegration of solids or microbial inactivation of liquids.
The typical average power range of our industrial electric pulsed field systems is up to 100 kW and the pulses are applied at repetition rates of up to a maximum of 500 pulses per second to allow sufficient treatment of all volume elements.
As a continuous short-time process with low space requirements, electric pulsed field processing systems can easily be implemented in existing lines.
For mild preservation of beverages and other (semi)liquids a typical processing line consists of a supply tank, a fluid pump, a transformer unit, a pulse generator unit, a cooler (if required) and a buffer tank. The capacities of our systems vary from 30 liters (8 US gallon) up to to 5000 liters (1320 US gallon) per hour per system. Flow, temperature, and energy delivery are constantly measured. Processing Juice/raw milk, cheese-making milk, yoghurt drinks or whey, using Seppa's electric pulsed field treatment enables the inactivation of the microbial cells, resulting in an extended shelf life and retention of fresh taste and healthy compounds. Seppa's EPF - technology uses low temperatures to ensure that freshness and precious, natural nutritional value are retained, achieving a higher probiotic value.
Seppa's proprietary PEF-technology can be used to treat fresh juices and smoothies. By permeabilizing cell membranes of micro-organisms PEF enables a targeted shelf life increase, retaining product quality and freshness. Seppa's juice applications reflect the value of Seppa's PEF-technology in achieving microbial cleanliness while simultaneously retaining the inherent qualities of the product. Agreements can include the supply of Liquid handling equipment to complete the project.
