Before a juice can be delivered to the customer, a certain amount of preliminary work needs to be done and a number of checks performed. Depending on the specific customer’s requirements, we can develop recipes from scratch or adapt existing recipes and determine the containers required for each transport route based on the batch size.
Logistics begins with storage. We store the agreed quantities for our customers – from harvest to harvest, in sterile tanks in a temperature controlled atmosphere. Vegetable juices require exceptionally careful handling as they are, by nature, less acidic than fruit juices. On retrieval from the tank, the juice is mixed under standardised conditions. In co-operation with our hauliers, we organise the entire transport to ensure on-time delivery in accordance with the Incoterms agreed upon with the customer.
Juices can be delivered:
- Cooled in tankers
- Cooled or aseptic in containers
- Cooled, frozen or aseptic in barrels
- Cooled, frozen or aseptic in canisters
The shelf life of the product depends on the relevant packaging chosen.
Carrot or beetroot juices are both perfect for developing recipes for delicious mixed drinks, drawing on distinctive additional ingredients like tomato, celery, cucumber or sauerkraut and finishing off with some seasoning.
The customer decides how they would like the recipe product to be delivered to them:
- As a readymixed cocktail with tomato juice
- As a compound without tomato juice
- Allergenfree without celeriac
Vegetable and fruit juice blends are particularly popular. With the “FRUITABLES” concept, the customer is presented with great recipes comprising up to 50% vegetables, but with a distinctively fruity flavour.
Tasting is an important element of recipe development, and tasting means providing samples. We send samples in 500 ml glass bottles or, where larger samples are required, in bag-in-boxes.
