About Chiltern Ridge

Chiltern Ridge is a rapidly expanding apple juicing business in Buckinghamshire. They produce juice from their own orchard, and also provide a bespoke apple juice making service for individuals who grow apples in the area.

Chiltern Ridge's Requirement

Chiltern Ridge approached Vigo with a requirement for a flexible system able to press small batches of fruit, ensuring that customers receive juice from their own apples. The system also needed to be able to cope with high levels of throughput with a minimal labour requirement.

The Solution

Vigo specified a juicing line including a Voran WALC elevator/mill and an EBP500 continuous belt press, with sorting table, juice pump and level control. The Voran EBP500 belt press is an ideal unit for this application, with no batch limit and its proven ability to provide high yields of juice. The system was installed and commissioned by Vigo engineers.

Feedback

Evert Donker, proprietor of Chiltern Ridge said, “We chose Vigo because they offered high quality equipment which was appropriate to our requirements. The team at Vigo are great people to work with, and they always provide a prompt and good quality service”.
