First cold press technology meeting EU hygiene standards

cold press juice production

The Dutch companies JFPT/foodlife and Cool Wave Processing have joined forces and developed a new cold press technology. “The Cold Press No. 1” fully complies with the latest European legislation for hygiene (EHEDG) and safety (CE). With cold pressing both nutrients and flavour of fresh fruit and vegetables juice remain best preserved.
In the United States, the cold press technology has been used for decades and has become the standard in juice production. The demand for healthy, fresh and natural juices is also on the rise in Europe, and therefore the demand for cold pressing too. JFPT/foodlife and Cool Wave Processing have designed the new press to exactly meet the European standards.

The Cold Press No. 1 is built mainly from stainless steel, even the electrical cabinet that is normally made of plastic. It has round pipes instead of pipes with straight angles and all the plastics are blue instead of white. This makes it the first cold press that completely complies with the strict EHEDG guidelines. Current presses demand for high maintenance and are difficult to clean; these two aspects are especially taken into account in the design of the new press.

Combined with the mild preservation technology PurePulse from Cool Wave Processing, the two companies offer a complete package for producers of fresh fruit and vegetable juice. Interested producers can discover the new press in the test center of JFPT/foodlife in Zwolle. The first series of The Cold Press No. 1, with a capacity of 100 liters per hour, will be delivered in December. From the beginning of January the next 10 presses are available. Cold presses with larger capacities will be available in the course of 2015.
