Cider making equipment - making the right decision

Cider plays and important role in the UK drinks market. If you are thinking of setting up a cider making business, or you are an established cider maker wanting to expand your production, Vigo supply an extensive range of cider making equipment, including apple washers, apple presses / mills, fermentation tanks, pasteurisers, filters, and bottling equipment.

If you are already an apple juice producer and want to progress to making cider the main additional equipment required is tanks for fermentation and storage.

Cider Making Equipment - Making the right decision

Investing in new equipment can allow you to maximise production and minimise labour costs, improving your profitability, so long as you make the right choice.

Choosing equipment can be daunting, and can lead to many different questions:

  • How much cider can I make?
  • Will I have to pay Cider Duty?
  • What juice yields I can expect?
  • How much will the equipment cost?
  • How can I reduce my labour costs, yet increase production?
  • Will the new equipment integrate easily into my existing operation?
  • How can I be certain that I’m choosing the appropriate equipment to suit my business – both for now and the future?
