Three universities, a research institute, a non-profit association and seven companies team up in this project. They are based in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands. The companies involved are a manufacturer of pulse power generators  and food companies which will be the end users of the developed technology and methods. The project started in May 2015, it lasts three years and thus three harvesting seasons. The results will be shared on this website and through our newsletter.

The Diesdorfer Süßmost-, Weinkelterei und Edeldestille GmbH was established in 1935 and is dedicated to the production and marketing of high quality fruit juices and nectars, fruit wines and fruit spirits. The company currently has 10 employees.

Three continuously and periodically up-to-date pressing systems are able for de-juicing up to 2000 tons of fruits and vegetables per year. The seasonally delivered raw materials are stored, washed, crushed and pressed within a short time to guarantee best qualities. The fresh juices are clarified, pasteurized and stored or bottled using a hotfill glass bottling line. The products are distributed in the mid-German state Saxony-Anhalt and neighboring states, as well as in an online shop. They attach importance to a strong regional focus, which is sustainable and environmentally friendly and an alternative to standardized beverage production. Their customers range from small local business to larger retailers.

The Diesdorfer Süßmost-, Weinkelterei und Edeldestille GmbH has experience in several national R&D projects, dealing with an improvement of fruit spirits quality (methanol reduction) and establishing a semi-industrial process for fermenting fruit juices.

During the project time the company will be a partner for pilot plant and semi-industrial trials. The wide range experience in processing fruits will be helpful to achieve valuable insights and results in short time.
