We make more out of fruit!
Alpenfrucht – A family company that knows what the sector needs
You choose it, we mix it
Most customers buy their raw materials directly from us. However, we are also happy to process your raw materials or fruits, which you have delivered from your contractual partners.
What we produce
We produce by different methods: direct juice, juice concentrate, purèe and powder
A naturally turbid, delicious juice is pressed from fresh, ripe, and carefully selected, washed fruits. Naked pressed juice can be produced by means of fining, i.e., the extraction of all solids (e.g., pectin, starch, and protein) from the naturally turbid fruit juice.
Naturally turbid and naked juices can also be gently processed in multi-stage plants to yield concentrates.
The fresh, selected, washed fruits can also be processed in multi-stage passing plants to yield fruit pulp.By choosing the proper passing screens, the resultant fruit pulp can be made slightly coarse, e.g., for fruit sauces – or very fine, e.g., for fruit nectars. The fruit pulp can also be concentrated.
By means of further water-extraction, fruit powder can be made from concentrated fruit pulp. Fruit powder is the basis for the following dry products: soups, sauces, beverages, and other instant fruit-based food products.
This fruit of paradise can be enjoyed as a wonderfully aromatic, fresh NFC juice or as a gently concentrated product. Ripened in sunny Italy, our products display the aromatic character of the pomegranate.
Our cultivation areas in Italy and France
Regionality and Innovation at Alpenfrucht
For many years now, Alpenfrucht GmbH has enjoyed a solid reputation in the area of fruit processing in Italy. This family-operated company has factories in the northwest and south of Italy, and benefits from the many decades of experience of its founder, Rudolf Bertolini.
Environmentally-aware and healthy nutrition
Since its foundation in 1995, our company, Alpenfrucht, has been working according to ecological principles. Since last year, it has also been producing select products in 100% compliance with biodynamic regulations. The integrity and naturalness of our products are the cornerstone of our company.
Successful passing of the baton at Alpenfrucht
It’s because the president of one of the largest manufacturers of fruit pulp and fruit juices in Italy, the Alpenfrucht company, has entrusted the management of the company to his daughter, Nicole Bertolini, the new CEO. After all, even successful companies with outstanding products have to constantly renew themselves if they want to continue being successful in a difficult market like the fruit pulp and fruit juices sector.
