Strawberry

Strawberries are among the most-aromatic, but also most-sensitive fruits. Cold processing is complicated, but yields a bright red fruit pulp.

Apricote

Apricots are highly aromatic and are characterized by a light and lively color. They are among the most desirable fruits for nectars, jams, and fruit preparations.

Kiwi

Kiwis have a bright green fruit flesh and a fresh, fruity aroma. Unfortunately, the color and aroma are not very stable during processing.

Apple

Numerous varieties of apples from Italy and France are the raw materials for apple products.

We make more out of fruit!

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

Direct juice

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.

Juice concentrate

Naturally turbid and naked juices can also be gently processed in multi-stage plants to yield concentrates.

Purèe

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.

Purèe +

Powder

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.

Pomegranate

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.

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.
