The basis for plant-based food is a stable, shapeable starting material
In the first step of preparing and standardizing the vegan mass, it is crucial to coordinate product-specific settings, internally developed recipes and proven process technology. After all, the goal is clear: Veggie products should not leave anything to be desired in terms of smell, appearance and taste. At this point we refer mainly to our double-shaft paddle mixer AMP and the industrial meat grinder AMG. The mixer blends protein and fat together with thickeners, colorants, spices and flavorings to form a homogeneous product. This homogeneous mass is then thoroughly and finely minced in the grinder. For vegan mince as a final product, only proper freezing and packaging is necessary. For most other products, further processing is essential.

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.
