Fruit and vegetable juice concentrates
The 14 production plants of AUSTRIA JUICE situated in Europe and China are directly located in the fruit-growing regions, which enables only short transport times from the orchards to the production site and fast fruit processing. In addition to a secure supply of raw materials, consistently high quality and product stability are the keys to success.
Thanks to our many years of expertise, state-of-the-art technologies and gentle processing under ideal temperature conditions, we preserve the natural ingredients, vibrant colour and high-quality taste in our juice concentrates. The product portfolio is also supplemented by vegetable juice concentrates made from carrot, rhubarb or beetroot.
Vegetable and sugar-reduced juices
According to the long-term trend of health and naturalness, mixed fruit-vegetable juices and sugar-reduced juice concentrates come into play in current beverage developments.
AUSTRIA JUICE is dedicated to the research of sugar-reduced juices that are calorie-reduced without compromising on the flavour profile and without any artificial ingredients. Our latest developments include sugar-reduced fruit juice drinks with 100% juice and only 70% of the calories.
Natural flavours for the food and drinks industry
When creating holistic beverage solutions for the food and beverage market, natural flavours play an essential role. Our international experts succeed in finding unique flavour profiles for our customers’ beverage or food applications.
The portfolio includes traditionally used high-quality essences (also called FTNF – From The Named Fruit) obtained during the fruit juice production and composition flavourings that allow us to offer customised and creative flavour profiles for all types of beverages, as well as for the confectionery and sweets segment. Plant-based flavour extracts by extraction also complements the range of flavouring possibilities.
Our own juice concentrates and flavourings build the main components for the beverage bases.
This all-in-one compound contains all ingredients that are needed for a qualitative and stable finished RTD beverage, in concentrated form. Beverage bases are an efficient way for bottler companies as they make the procurement and storage of raw materials, as well as the blending of the ingredients much easier. In addition to the well-developed basic elements of a beverage, such as fruit juice concentrates, sweeteners, acidifiers and flavourings, functional ingredients that include vitamins, fibres or minerals can also be included in this holistic compound.
AUSTRIA JUICE creates with these blends an excellent basis for a wide variety of thirst-quenchers, ranging from non-alcoholic organic drinks, functional, energy or sports drinks to alcoholic beer mixes and cider drinks.
Beverage bases are also the perfect and efficient solution for breweries when it comes to the development of beer-mix drinks.
All ingredients, from juice concentrates to flavours and sweeteners, are provided in one compound. With our state-of-the-art standards in our laboratories and the long-term know-how in product development, we provide beverage bases for beer-mix beverages with nearly all kinds of tastes.
Be it a classical taste profile such as lemon or fruity cherry or exciting taste experiences such as snakebite, green tea or beer with herbal or tropical flavours, AUSTRIA JUICE is the right partner for creating individual beverage solutions.
