Fruits & Nuts

Integrated technologies and intelligent solutions to propel your production lines into the future and empower you to carve out your competitive advantage

Fruits and Nuts

JBT has a long and rich heritage in the primary processing of fruits and nuts. Over the years, we have dedicated countless hours to research, education, and innovation to individually master each intricate step of transforming raw material into finished products prepared for human consumption. Our primary customers include citrus, tomato, tropical, and temperature fruit processors as well as leaders in the secondary processing of tomato-based sauces, fruit jams, and juices.

We understand the unique demands of the fruit- and nut-processing industries and offer targeted solutions to ameliorate the difficulties processors face in their production lines and business strategies. We develop and manufacture the most cutting-edge, innovative, and data-driven machinery in the entire food-processing industry. 

Our core technologies focus on the preparation, enzymatic inactivation, extraction, concentration, freezing and filling of your fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Sterilization and/or pasteurization can also be accomplished either thermally or via High-Pressure Processing (HPP).

Cutting-Edge Features to Meet Your Needs

JBTs fruit and nut processors meet the highest standards of efficiency, precision, flexibility, user safety, and end-product quality and freshness. Every piece of machinery we manufacture is carefully designed and rigorously tested. We’re dedicated to continued innovation, not just meeting today’s expectations and standards, but anticipating those of tomorrow. Features include:

  • Superior versatility — From our extractors, to our evaporators and concentrators, to our produce-labeling systems, all our equipment is designed to process fruit of all shapes, sizes, and varieties.
  • Improved quality and freshness — We are the leading global supplier of post-harvest produce solutions for preserving appearance, color, texture, and taste characteristics as well as extending shelf-life. Our Almond Surface Pasteurization System delivers a pathogen-free product without altering the raw-like flavor and appearance of the nut.
  • Advanced sterilization and pasteurization — Our machinery can effectively and efficiently sterilize and/or pasteurize your products thermally or via High-Pressure Processing (HPP).
  • Improved product uniformity — From fresh produce to jams, juices, and purees, our processors are designed to boost efficiency and increase your yield without sacrificing uniformity.

Designed for Seamless Integration

Our extensive range of fruit and nut processing equipment is designed to comprehensively meet all your production-line needs from start to finish. However, we also carefully developed our machinery to ensure its seamless integration into your existing setups and systems.
