Supporting Customer Development
JBT FoodTech also supports customers' product development in our product testing laboratories by being able to set up different processing models for various food products supplied by the food processors/customers. The labs also take an active part in new product and process development for our customers to determine proper equipment sizing and technology for safe processing.
JBT FoodTech uses food safety paradigms employing multiple hurdles to safeguard the food products being processed. Specialized control systems employing state of the art software and hardware, monitor and optimize individual machines up to entire lines within a food processing facility, as well as providing support for validating processes or equipment. Some equipment manuals have sections written to support and assist customers in developing their own SSOPs.
