This new addition marks a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to delivering the highest quality and stability for its non-alcoholic beverages.
The pasteurization unit, a TMCI PADOVAN, is designed to ensure the safety and longevity of non-alcoholic beverages by eliminating harmful pathogens and microorganisms without compromising on taste or nutritional value. This innovative system applies precisely controlled heat to the beverages, effectively extending shelf life while maintaining the utmost product integrity. The main services provided will be:
- Flash Pasteurization (Micro stability) of de-alcoholised wine prior to filling
- Flash Pasteurization of grape juice to prolong storage and reduce storage risk
- Flash Pasteurization, the loading of high sugar content still wine into export containers
“We export most of the non-alcoholic beverages we process to the UK and EU,” states Gustav Fouche, Managing Director, South Africa. “The addition of the pasteurization unit will ensure our customer products maintain their quality no matter the time it takes to arrive to its destination”.
The pasteurization process employed by BevZero’s state-of-the-art unit not only ensures the safety of its products but also optimizes the stability of non-alcoholic beverages over time. By gently treating the beverages, the unit effectively inhibits the growth of harmful microorganisms that could compromise taste and freshness. As a result, consumers can enjoy the same great taste and quality they expect from BevZero’s non-alcoholic offerings, even after prolonged periods of storage.
In addition to the immediate benefits for consumers, the implementation of this pasteurization unit is also a key step towards achieving BevZero’s sustainability goals. By extending the shelf life of non-alcoholic beverages, the company aims to reduce waste and minimize its environmental impact. This aligns perfectly with BevZero’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility and creating a greener future for the beverage industry.
