Apple juice operation

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AN entrepreneur has applied for, and received, local government tax assistance to establish a large (non-alcoholic) cider operation in Leominister, Massachusetts. The city council has approved a 10-year tax incremental financing agreement with Steven D Rowse of Bevovations doing business as New England Apple Products, the Telegram & Gazette reported. Rowse has already invested USD525 000 in improving the site on 320 Industrial Road, as well as USD1.3 million on machinery. He expects to make more than 500 000 gallons (approximately 1.8 million litres) of cider from locally-sourced apples each autumn, using two huge hydraulic presses. Rowse is part of the family that owned the Veryfine juice company before they sold it to Kraft in 2004.
