In 1884, John Bean set out to solve a problem. In doing so he developed a truly innovative solution to battle the devastating San Jose scale affecting California's orchards -- the first continuous spray pump. This development set in motion JBT as we know it today, a company where problem solving and innovative solutions remain the cornerstone.
Hundreds of innovations have followed, such as the invention of the rotary sterilizer, a landmark technology that revolutionized in-container processing. Today, JBT remains a leader in all forms of in-container processing.
From freezing technology that has made it possible for processors to introduce hundreds of new frozen food products to citrus extraction technology that provides high-quality citrus juices around the world, JBT has been there from the beginning. Today, JBT continues to reinvent itself and deliver best-in-class solutions based on a culture of innovation and problem solving, coupled with our core competencies in various food preservation techniques.
