Featured member: Flavourtech
Flavourtech is a privately owned company, established in 1985 and based in the town of Griffith NSW. They design, manufacture, service and support specialised processing equipment for the food, beverage (coffee, tea, wine & beer), dairy, flavour and pharmaceutical industries worldwide. Over 90% of their products are exported and they have installed equipment in over 60 countries.
The unique technology and innovative applications that Flavourtech has developed allows it to process these products in a very gentle manner through the use of steam alone, and without the use of any chemicals or solvents. Their core technology, Spinning Cone Column (SCC) is considered best in class for flavour capture in the tea, coffee and flavour industry and is used by market leading companies in these industries world wide.
In the mid 90’s Flavourtech combined their SCC and Centritherm technologies into a ‘total solution’ creating the Integrated Extraction System (IES) tailored to meet the individual needs of beverage customers. It also developed revolutionary new technologies such as the Rotating Disc Column (RDC)in 2015 that extracts coffee in a fraction of the time of conventional techniques while improving quality.
A major milestone was achieved in 2018 with the sale and subsequent installation of a full IES process line, including the RDC, into the soluble coffee industry in Colombia and India. This multi-million dollar process line allows Flavourtech to not just be a small part in someone else’s process line but to supply the entire process line itself. This achieves a “Customer for Life” with service and support supplied by Flavourtech for many years into the future securing ongoing export business and further building the relationship with customers.
Much of the canned coffee in Japan, iced tea in the USA and instant coffee just about anywhere in the world has likely passed through a Flavourtech technology. The majority of Flavour houses around the world also use the Spinning Cone Column to capture natural aromas from fruit, vegetables, tea and coffee.
