About Heron Valley
Heron Valley are an award winning producer of organic juices and cider.
Heron Valley's Requirement
Heron Valley approached Vigo with a requirement to improve the flexibility and efficiency of their pressing equipment, to replace their existing hydraulic rack and cloth press. They wanted to increase production without impacting on their labour costs. They also wanted the capability of applying aluminium ROPP caps to their bottles, to allow them to expand their product range and improve bottle presentation.
Vigo specified and supplied a juicing line including a Voran WALC elevator/mill and an EBP500 continuous belt press, with level control. This system allows Heron Valley to press a greater quantity of fruit in a shorter period of time, with flexibility to switch pressing between cider and juicing varieties quickly and easily. The system gives these benefits whilst reducing labour costs.
We also supplied a VRC semi automatic ROPP capping machine..
Natasha Green of Heron Valley said, “We chose Vigo partly because we have a long standing relationship with them. They offer good advice and provide high quality equipment, which is well supported by their engineering team. As a small business, we couldn’t have uncertainty about how the equipment works and how it is serviced. Vigo gave us the confidence that the equipment would be appropriate to our needs, and that it would be installed and commissioned by Vigo engineers, ensuring that the line would be working perfectly from day one, and our staff would be fully trained in using the equipment.”
“The equipment has allowed us to increase production by over 30%, whilst making immediate savings on labour costs. Cleaning the equipment is fast and easy. I did have concerns about the effect of using a belt press on the quality of the juice, as I had heard that juice quality can be affected by belt pressing, but these fears were unfounded – the juice tastes great! I have had excellent service from Vigo, and the equipment has revolutionised the way we run our business.”
