Further processing

Benefit from our decades of know-how. 

The generic term plant-based food is subdivided into plant-based meat and various other areas such as plant-based fish, cheese, milk, yogurt and ice cream. Frozen meat alternatives such as burger patties, nuggets and minced meat are primarily in demand, followed by vegan cold cuts and sausage spreads. Convenience products in particular, i.e. easy-to-prepare "ready-to-eat" products, impress consumers with their taste, consistency and, of course, shelf life. The trend towards healthier living is also driving alternative foods, which stand out above all for their high nutritional value and high-quality fatty acids.

With the JBT ALCO convenience line, you use our proven machines to process your vegan alternatives to meat with only minor adjustments. With our coating lines, you give your product a crispy coating, optionally as wet battering or dry breading. A subsequent frying system AGF or spiral oven ASH heats your product to the desired core temperature for an optimal taste. The sustainable construction combines highly efficient heating elements with modern hygienic design and low energy consumption. Finally, our spiral freezer ASK cools your product down in the smallest possible space and with individually adjustable process speed. Use our conveyor technology to ideally connect individual machines with each other.
