Caterers across the foodservice industry can now take juices to another level thanks to a technologically perfect device available through Imperial Catering Equipment.
The Versatile Pro is designed and built by Zumex, the market leader in all things juicers. This orange juice squeezer and maker features state-of-the-art electronic operational modes and incorporates a simple touch display, where the operator can get to grips with the advanced options. It also includes the original patented Zumex orange squeezing system.
Imperial Catering Equipment's sales director, Andy Piggin, said: "The Versatile Pro is certainly a top product, which helps caterers serve up the perfect glass of OJ. There are two modes, which are extremely simple and easy-to-use. The self-service element sees the juicer simply starting when the tap is pressed. However, in the professional mode you're able to do a range of functions including programming how many oranges you want to squeeze every time. The squeezing process then starts when you press ‘ON' and ends when the programmed cycle finishes."
In the professional mode it's possible to get even more technical and you can even control the number of cups of juice which are served. It's more than just technologically sound, as the Versatile Pro also includes an exceptional feeder loading capacity, which can take up to 10kg of oranges.
Proving a huge success in Europe, the machine was previously supplied free of charge to caterers who bought a supply of oranges. With the massive reduction in the price of oranges over the last few years this route to market is no longer viable.
With 45mg of Vitamin C contents (54%) in 100g of raw orange, orange is one of the richest sources of Vitamin C1, recommended by many dietitians for everyone as part of a healthy diet. A cup of fresh orange juice provides about 124 mg of Vitamin C, which covers more than 755 daily requirements of this nutrient for the human body.
"The Versatile Pro juicer provides an ideal opportunity to tap into demands from today's increasingly health conscious population for fresh, healthy drinks. Visually, this juicer looks great on the counter top and is an excellent way to entice customers at order and pay points," added Andy.
"It's the ideal juicer for buffets and hotels with self-service, and will certainly give more freedom to the service in the bar, or restaurant trade, as customers will easily be able to help themselves."
The Versatile Pro is available in orange, silver, or graphite. It comes with a stand, removable base, and a drip-free system. The stand actually extends the capacity for peel waste and the other Zumex accessories allow caterers to adapt the juicer to suit their own needs.
