Leading Vietnam shrimp producer makes major freezer order

JBT FoodTech signed a $6.1 million contract to supply freezing solutions for a new plant in Hau Giang Province, Vietnam. The contract is with Minh Phu Seafood Joint Stock Company (MPC), a large Vietnam-based seafood processor.


ADVANTEC™ impingement freezer

JBT FoodTech will supply and integrate eight ADVANTEC™ impingement freezers and four GYRoCOMPACT® spiral freezers for the new Hau Giang facility. MPC has been Vietnam’s leading shrimp producer for the last 10 years, and this new plant will enable it to double the amount of shrimp it processes for worldwide export.

“We are very pleased with MPC’s confidence in JBT’s leading freezing technologies and proven track record for field service and technical support,” said Torbjorn Arvidsson, vice president and division manager for JBT FoodTech’s Food Solutions and Services Division. “This project is an excellent example of how JBT FoodTech partners with global customers and supports the development of regional food industries.”

The project is currently scheduled to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2010.

JBT FoodTech named one of ‘The Best Companies to

For the 10th year in a row, the Brazil-based business of JBT FoodTech was named one of “The 130 Best Companies to Work For in Brazil” by Epoca magazine in partnership with the Great Place to Work® (GPTW) Institute.

JBT FoodTech was among 530 companies that registered this year with the Great Place to Work Institute Brazil, an affiliate of the San Francisco, Calif., U.S.A.,-based Great Place to Work Institute, Inc. Companies are selected for the Best Companies lists primarily based upon their employees’ responses to a survey that measures the levels of trust, pride and camaraderie within the workplace.

The GPTW Institute is a research and management consulting firm with international affiliate offices in 41 countries and is dedicated to building a better society by helping companies transform their workplaces. This study was published in Epoca, a Brazilian weekly news and analysis magazine. GPTW Institute also works with other leading regional publications, such as Fortune magazine, HR magazine and the Financial Times, in 30 countries to publish and recognize the Best Companies.

“We are honored with continued recognition as one of The Best Companies to Work For in Brazil,” said Juan Podesta, vice president and division manager of JBT FoodTech's Food Processing Systems Division. “This remarkable achievement is directly attributable to our exceptional team of employees and proves that together we continue to create an excellent work environment.”
