Rynkeby ozonates to prolong shelf-life
When Inger Rasmusson squeezed her first apple broth in Danish Rynkeby in 1934, she could hardly dream that the company would make 150 million liters of juice on its way to the 90th anniversary. Today, the company is owned by German Eckes-Granini after previous owners MD Foods and Arla. Sales are mainly in Sweden and Denmark with a focus on juice from natural ingredients and without additives. The oranges are picked in Brazil and Mexico and shipped to Europe freshly squeezed both as it is and as a concentrate. Rynkeby also produces mixed juices, lemonade, tomato juice and ginger, turmeric and chili shots with lemon juice as a base.
In 2017, Rynkeby Foods incorporated well known juice brands such as Brämhults, PAGO, God Morgon and Rynkeby, all known for their high quality, freshly squeezed juices. In order to ensure cross-brand quality and longest possible shelf-life, Rynkeby Foods were in dire need of a solution to avoid microbial contamination during the fresh produce washing and rinsing processes. The system needed to be turn-key, show high reliability and be easy to run as a part of the modern new production facility.
Ever since the commissioning of the facility and the ozone system, Rynkeby Foods now enjoys the most complete ozone system available on the market, ensuring product quality with an out-of-the-box solution. The ozone levels are automatically controlled to 1 ppm dissolved ozone concentration at less than 0.8 kW total input power. Our unique HELS™ technology along with the high levels of engineering our in-house expertise provides, makes the ozone system run reliably and consistently when needed at the push of a button. The system rinse carrots, oranges, apples and many more fruits.
