JBT CORPORATION's Foodtech business has won a major juice bottling contract in the Middle East. Aujan Industries is buying two of its high-speed bottling lines for Aujan's smooth juice with real fruit pieces. The contract is worth about EUR6.1 million (USD8.0 million). Aujan is the largest privately owned beverage and confectionery company in the Middle East. The lines will enable the unloading of citrus pulp cells; the dosing and mixing of both intact pulp cells and juice at constant ratios; the pasteurisation of the pulpy fruit beverage; and filling into retail packs. The new equipment is scheduled to be operational in the third quarter of this year.
