Tropical Food Machinery, Fruit Processing Machinery

With decades of field experience on its back, the Italy headquartered
Tropical Food Machinery is a leading company in the global field of fruit processing machinery. Founded in the late 1970s by a pioneering Italian entrepreneur, the company currently boasts an operating branch in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, two- fruit processing plants located in the north of the country, as well as liaison offices in India, Costa Rica, and across the Asia-Pacific and West Africa regions.

As the fruit market is set to account for nearly 5 percent of world GDP by 2030, with much of this remarkable growth taking place in the emerging markets of Middle East, Asia, and Africa, the company is looking to further shore up its international operation with the aim to be closer to its customers.

“Rising demand for fruit worldwide represents an unparalleled opportunity to spur innovation, employment and prosperity,” said Stefano Concari, the company’s general director. Tropical Food Machinery’s corporate philosophy  revolves  around  the  notions of flexibility and versatility. The company always seeks to identify the most appropriate solution in any particular case as it is well cognizant that customers’ needs depend on a wide range of factors, such as geography, ready access to market and a working supply chain. This allows the company to meet the needs of a wide range  of  clients,  from  family-owned businesses  to  large-scale  industrial producers.

Thanks to its decades long know-how accrued  on  the  field,  Tropical  Food Machinery  is  able  to  offer  a  wide range   of   multi-purpose   technological  solutions,  starting  from  very  low capacity  systems such as small-size plants  on  skid  or  mobile  plants  to large-scale, automated plants for the industrial process of tropical, deciduous fruit and tomato.
Every  line  is  designed  in-house  and then  built  and  tested  before  every and  each  delivery,  enabling  a  complete  control  over  quality  and  productive speed and creating a strong sense of responsibility within the company’s workforce.

Some of the jewels of this range that have enjoyed particular success recently are the Mini Industry Line 200 and the Multifruit Line 1000. Mini Industry Line 200 arose from discussions with international organizations and was designed to be used by small-scale producers and farmers in decentralized areas. With this line, farmers can process themselves any fruit and produce  “ready-to-drink” fruit juice, jam, fruit salad and tomato paste packed in glass, pet or tins and sell this product on the retail market.

Mini  Industry  Line  200  is approximately   12-meter-long   and has very low energy consumption. The system supplied already assembled in one single container, preventing bothering assembling issues.
Mini   Industry   Line   200   can be therefore moved from location to another if the season requires so, allowing producers to refine seasonal fruits directly on-site, avoiding extra transport problems and related problems. Further upside is that it’s high manufacturing quality and standards allow the use of non-specialized personnel.
Multifruit Line 1000 is designed for the same use in remote areas and highly flexible situations.

The  system  is  the  smallest  of  the company’s   fully   automatic   lines. It  has  a  working  capacity  up  to  1 tons/h of any fruit and can produce aseptic natural juice/purée and  concentrate as well. The aseptic pulp or juice is a  semi-finish d product which is  fill d in 220 L bag in drum, it is very  long-lasting even when stored at  room temperature and is then supplied to blending – juicing – baby  food companies and even to the  HORECA chain. This line is particularly recommended for those entrepreneurs  who are not regularly supplied with  big quantity of fruits Given its already deep-rooted  presence in most of the largest  markets, Tropical Food Machinery boasts also a comprehensive  aftersales support service that is  able to provide spare parts and a  prompt technical support if the  need should arise.

As Concari put it: “This is what  drives our company: relentlessly  working with our customers to improve our technologies and offer  even higher yields and more efficient production.”
