ZUMEX® shows its support for the hotel and food service industry by extending warranties

Zumex has implemented a prevention and containment plan to safeguard the health and safety of its staff and guarantee technical and customer assistance to its retail and food service clients  ZUMEX® shows its support for the hotel and food service industry by extending warranties.

The firm has announced that all its machines used in bars, cafés, restaurants, hotels and juice bars, among others, will benefit from the additional two-month warranty. They will not have to do anything to activate this extension. 
 
• In addition, the firm will be keeping its online store, Zumex Store, to its customers in the food distribution and food service industries. 
 
• ZUMEX® has given its distributors and customers a recommendations handbook that includes specific advice on sanitising their machines during this time, as well as information on the nutritional properties of freshly squeezed juice and its importance in boosting our immune system. 

ZUMEX®, a strategic partner and world leader in juicing systems, has today announced that it is extending the warranty on all its machines to show its support for the hotel and food service industry, which has been seriously affected by the COVID-19 virus and has had to close their businesses to the general public to help contain the spread of the virus. 

Along these lines, the firm has announced that all the machines used in bars, cafés, restaurants, hotels and juice bars, and all the food service contexts that use ZUMEX® technology, will benefit from the two-month warranty extension. They will not have to do anything to activate this extension. This new measure taken by the company, which is part of its Customer Service programme, seeks to help all its customers in the hotel and catering industry, which has been especially hard hit by the current situation. 

Along the same lines, the company’s online store, Zumex Store, is still open for business to ensure the supply to its customers. During the ‘state of alarm’ the company will be focusing on serving its food service and food distribution customers. Orders can be sent to ZUMEX® via the online store https://www.zumexstore.com or can be made by phone by calling +34 961 301 251.  

“In these times of crisis and uncertainty that affect us all, one of our main concerns is to look after our customers. On behalf of everybody at ZUMEX®, we want to send our customers our best wishes and hope to help them minimise the impact of the closure of their establishments as best we can. Above all, we want them to feel that they are not alone, which is why we have decided to extend the warranties on their equipment for an extra two months, and why the Zumex Store is open for our retail and food service customers” says Victor Bertolín, CEO of ZUMEX® Group. 

The company also offers its customers technical assistance in Spain via the phone number +34 960 800 999 or by sending an e-mail to service@zumex.com. 

Telephone and online customer service 

In addition to this new initiative, through which the company aims to do its bit in this health crisis, Zumex continues to provide customer service in the more than 100 markets in which it is present, either through its subsidiaries or its network of distributors. These services are provided telematically, both via its website and by telephone, as well as by e-mail and videoconferencing. 

This objective has been achieved through the prevention and containment plan the firm has implemented, based on the protocols recommended by the health authorities. This plan helps to safeguard the health and safety of Zumex’s staff and at the same time provide any necessary customer service, technical support, help with orders and the supply of any parts and equipment that may be required. 

“Our machines are operational in most of the large distribution chains in the various countries in which we operate, so it is essential to maintain customer service”, explain ZUMEX® sources, who are confident of “providing the same standard of assistance and service, though we also would like to thank our customers in advance for their comprehension. We would also like to send them all our support and energy to keep moving forward and fight the virus”. 

COVID-19 recommendations handbook for customers and distributors 

Likewise, ZUMEX® has sent a comprehensive handbook with COVID-19 recommendations to its customers and distributors, aimed at providing advice on how to use the company’s machines during this exceptional period. 

Many consumers are purchasing freshly squeezed juice at this time as it is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. ZUMEX® aims to help its retail customers and the people in charge of maintaining their juicers to draw up protocols to maximize efficiency and safety when producing freshly squeezed juice for consumers. The handbook sets out the comprehensive hygiene and sanitising protocols recommended by ZUMEX® in a highly visual, user-friendly format. It also features information on how to use disinfectants and the firm’s own cleaning products such as the specific cleaner Zumex Citric Active, a professional cleaning product specially formulated for cleaning citrus and commercial juicers. 

In addition, this handbook offers basic information on the nutritional benefits of freshly squeezed juice, which is a great ally in following a healthy and balanced diet in these complex times. It includes information such as the amount of Vitamin C contained in a glass of 100% natural orange juice, as well as its importance in strengthening our immune system. Other less known facts, such as the amount of potassium, folate and polyphenols contained in orange juice and their role in the proper functioning of the body, are also part of this handbook for trade professionals. 

This handbook will be available to all the company’s customers and distributors, both in Spain and in more than 100 countries around the world in which ZUMEX is present with its juicing solutions. The handbook can also be downloaded directly from the company’s website. 

ZUMEX® Group is a strategic partner in the juice business and has been a world leader in the design of innovative solutions for fruit and vegetable juicing for more than three decades. It is present in more than 100 countries through an extensive network of distributors and its five subsidiaries (USA, Mexico, UK, France and Germany), which work closely with its headquarters located in Spain (Moncada-Valencia).

ZUMEX® consolidates its European leadership and reveals the keys to the success of its freshly squeezed juice at Euroshop and Intergastra

ZUMEX® consolidates its European leadership and reveals the keys to the success of its freshly squeezed juice at Euroshop and Intergastra

These international forums are the ideal setting for the company to showcase its InstaFresh Juice concept, which embodies the success of its freshly squeezed juice in store, the juice category created by ZUMEX® with the highest retail growth in Europe.

  • The firm is spearheading the continuous increase of the “freshly squeezed juice in store” category in supermarkets all over Europe and has demonstrated its leading market position in the two benchmark European retail and food service fairs
  • ZUMEX® is strengthening its role as the leading European player in its sector and is the reference strategic partner for the juice business for numerous European retailers including Auchan, Carrefour and Albert Heijn, and chains such as NH and Autogrill
  • The firm’s solutions are already available in up to 75% of retailers in some of the world’s strongest markets, such as Spain and the Netherlands

ZUMEX® Group, a global leader in the development of juicing systems, has recently participated in Euroshop and Intergastra, two of the world’s largest retail and hospitality trade fairs, which were held in Germany from 15 to 20 February. At these international events, the company revealed the keys and explained the details behind the European market success of “freshly squeezed juice in store” thanks to its juicing solutions.

As Victor Bertolin, ZUMEX®’s CEO, explains, participation in these fairs is a must given that Zumex is “the juicing solution company with the largest retail and food service share in Europe”. The truth is that the brand’s penetration in Europe continues to grow and it is gaining ground year after year as the sector’s undisputed leader.

Although ZUMEX® still has room to grow in Europe, it has already deployed tens of thousands of units and its machines operate across the continent, from Portugal and Spain in Mercadona, through to the Ukraine in Auchan. Thus, the firm is present in most European markets through national and international agreements with major retailers, such as the French companies Carrefour and System U, and multinational hospitality and food service chains such as Autogrill, Accor, Marriot and NH Hoteles. As a result, it dominates important markets in Southern Europe, such as Spain, in Central Europe, such as the Netherlands and Belgium, and it is also growing strongly in Northern Europe. 

In the Netherlands, one out of every two stores has ZUMEX® machines, and it is present in important chains such as Alberth Heijn, Coop, Jumbo and Plus. Such is the firm’s dominance that its market share in the country is already 75% in retail (in stores equipped with freshly squeezed juicing solutions), according to company statistics. In Belgium, the situation is very similar, with a presence in up to 11 retail chains, including Match and Cora.

 

In Spain, 70% of retailers have already installed the firm’s juicing solutions, including international players such as Carrefour, Aldi and Mercadona. In Finland, the firm is already present in 400 Kesko group stores and it is making progress towards winning other major contracts that will enable it to increase its market share in other Finnish retail outlets.

This robust market share is underpinned by the strategic position provided by the firm’s subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France and Germany. In addition, the firm, which is a pioneer in automatic juicing technologies, leverages its expertise to build on its partnerships with large food service and retail companies, providing them with advice and guaranteeing high success rates when they consider launching or optimising a juice service. In these win-win partnerships, ZUMEX® acts as their strategic ally in the juice business. The company’s policies aim to meet the demands of its customers and help them anticipate the needs of the end consumer, who expects fresh, genuine, 100% natural, sustainable and easy-to-consume juices in “on-the-go” formats, such as freshly squeezed juice in store, a category that is booming.

InstaFresh Juice by ZUMEX®, the concept behind the origin and success of freshly squeezed juice in store

The ZUMEX® InstaFresh Juice concept is behind this successful juice category created by the firm which has become a worldwide trend. This innovative concept is the basis of the firm’s value proposal, which has revolutionised the juice business. It consists of offering 100% natural juice, with all its nutrients, through a transparent process based on the company’s unique Original System®. As a result, its juicing solutions offer consumers a clear, fast and simple way to prepare freshly squeezed juice. Furthermore, this category generates the highest value for retailers compared to other juice categories, with an average price of €3.41 per litre.

Both Euroshop, the largest retail trade fair in Europe, and Intergastra, a biannual trade fair for the hotel and gastronomy industry, have proved to be a great scenario for the company to showcase its latest innovative juicing solutions to potential clients. The star of the first fair was the Speed series, consisting of the Speed S+plus and Speed Up models, the series of citrus juicers designed for high juice demands in food service and retail, together with the new Speed Pomegranates, the first high-performance machine designed to juice pomegranates. In the second event, the new Soul Series 2, an ultra-compact automatic juicer, with a groundbreaking design, robust interior and premium connectivity, as well as the Multifruit, the most powerful and robust range of commercial juicers for the most demanding food service professionals, aroused a lot of interest.

ZUMEX® Group is a strategic partner in the juice business and has been a world leader in the design of innovative solutions for fruit and vegetable juicing for more than three decades. It is present in more than 100 countries through an extensive network of distributors and its five subsidiaries (USA, Mexico, UK, France and Germany), which work closely with its headquarters located in Spain (Moncada-Valencia).

ZUMEX® takes freshly squeezed juice to the office with the new Versatile Pro Cashless

Freshly squeezed juice and cashless payment technologies go hand in hand in the new self-service professional automatic juicer by ZUMEX®, a strategic player and world leader in the juice business, which aims to extend the “juice break” concept to the workplace.

  • ZUMEX® introduces a refreshing take on the traditional “coffee break” concept with the launch of its new Versatile Pro Cashless, its first self-service automatic juicer for offices
  • Freshly squeezed juice is a fast, profitable and healthy alternative to coffee in business centres, production plants, co-working centres and offices 
  • The new Versatile Pro Cashless is easy to use and offers up to four cashless payment methods for payments in record time

The expressions “coffee time” and “coffee break” are about to come up against some stiff competition. Up until recently, coffee and soft drinks were the only drinks option during the working day. Now, thanks to the arrival of freshly squeezed juice, there is now a faster and healthier option available in offices around the world with ZUMEX®. The world leader in juicing systems has developed Versatile Pro Cashless, its first self-service automatic juicer designed to offer a refreshing and healthier take on the office coffee service (OCS). 

Thus, after having successfully introduced freshly squeezed juice in the HORECA, retail and school environments, ZUMEX® is now committed to entering the lives of thousands of workers with its new automatic juicers. The new Versatile Pro Cashless range is specifically designed to meet the needs of companies, business centres and self-service areas that want to offer freshly squeezed juice, without taking up lots of space, to help promote healthy break times during the working day.

The new Versatile Pro Cashless is a revolutionary, highly compact, contactless cashless solution, and due to its small size, it fits easily into any office corner. In addition, it comes in two models, the table-top version and the All-in-One version with a podium, which is easy to move depending on day-to-day needs.

This completely new range is based on the successful Versatile Pro model, a range of machines that have proved to be a huge hit in food and drink chains around the world, such as Starbucks, Subway and Costa Coffee. This time, the result of the firm’s innovation is a new range of high performance automatic juicers that are efficient and easy to use in self-service environments, and are perfect for extending the “juice break” concept to the business world.

As easy as: “Pay, Press & Enjoy your juice”

The new machine stands out for its easy, highly flexible payment methods as it incorporates cashless payment technology. It provides up to four cashless payment methods including contactless with mobile phone and card (either personal or corporate), chip, magnetic stripe and MIFARE.

It also has a whole host of other new features which include its new ultra-fluid feeding system that makes it easier for fruit to enter the juicing cycle and improves the efficiency and autonomy of the machine, and its new more ergonomic anti-drip tap with its Easy Press front push button.  

In addition to being easy to operate and very user-friendly, this juicer is also easy to clean thanks to its 1Step Kit and the exclusive ZUMEX ASP® nanotechnology, which guarantees food safety.

In addition, it accurately counts the pieces of fruit to be juiced, providing optimum control for the machine operator and also includes different safety systems.

This new range of machines for the world of business was successfully presented at HOST 2019 and is available in two colours, which are ideally suited to the current working environments: Black, a new, very elegant, matt black colour and Orange, the most popular and distinctive ZUMEX® coourl.

In short, a machine with a state-of-the-art design that is perfect for optimising break times in new workplace environments and for promoting a healthy lifestyle, even during the working day.

ZUMEX® celebrates its 25th anniversary in the USA with the launch of its new Multifruit commercial juicer

ZUMEX® celebrates its 25th anniversary in the USA with the launch of its new Multifruit commercial juicer

The multinational will be in attendance at the centennial of the NRA, the largest retail and HORECA channel trade exhibition in the United States, showcasing its new, more powerful and robust Multifruit to the food service industry’s most demanding professionals

The company’s latest developments feature the new version of the iconic Multifruit commercial juicer, which include the new extremely hard-wearing titanium shredding disc.

• This new tool offers a premium user experience by increasing performance, resistance and durability, thus responding to the demands of professional big-time juicers.

• ZUMEX®’s juicers are celebrating a quarter of a century in the US market. The pioneering nature of the firm and its win-win solutions for leading companies such as Starbucks, Subway, Jamba Juice and Juice, and major retailers such as Whole Foods, HEB and Wegmans, have consolidated it as the strategic partner of reference for juice businesses .

The first ZUMEX® Group juicers arrived in the United States in 1994, just over 25 years ago. Since then, the company, a strategic partner in the development of the juice business, has grown its market share in the United States and Canada year after year. The company was the first one to introduce the concept of freshly squeezed juice into major supermarket chains such as Whole Foods, HEB, and Wegmans, thus bringing a fresh, natural and healthy product to thousands of American homes.

This long history has consolidated the company’s commitment to these markets and, in 2019, ZUMEX® is taking advantage of the centennial of the NRA Show in Chicago to present its new Multifruit, a commercial juicer in great demand in this market. Thus, ZUMEX® returns once again to the benchmark US trade fair for the hotel and catering industry, which brings together over 2,000 exhibitors and trade professionals from more than 100 countries.

On this special occasion, the highlight of the show is the new premium version of the Multifruit commercial juicer, which is ideal for optimising non-stop juice service performance in hotels, restaurants, cafés and juice bars. However, it is not the only new development: the company is also presenting innovations in its Versatile Pro range, the smallest self-service juicer on the market and ideal for convenience contexts, such as those of major American firms like Starbucks, Subway, Jamba Juice and Jugo Juice.

Through these developments, ZUMEX® aims to boost market penetration in the different American states and continue to lead innovation in the juice business. According to the firm, this is the best way to safeguard its partnership with large companies in the HORECA and retail channels.

New Multifruit, a heart of TITANIUMTM that can handle everything you put in it.

The new generation of Multifruit juicers stands out for its new, extremely hard-wearing TITANIUMTM shredding disc (combined with its powerful brushless motor) ensures incredible performance in helping foodservice professionals to prepare multi-fruit juices with ease. The new, extremely durable material of the disc quickly shreds the hardest fruits and vegetables, from carrots, apples and pineapples through to celery and ginger.

In addition, the increased strength of the blades and a new crosshead, coupled with the robustness of the titanium disc, improves cutting and increases resistance to wear and tear, thus ensuring a longer lifespan.

Another of the new innovations in the design of this commercial juicer is the new easier to use, more efficient tap, whose new Easy Grip finish improves handling and provides optimal juice flow to serve juice directly to the customer. In addition, the new tap turns 180º to ensure excellent hygiene conditions in cafés, restaurants, cocktail bars and juice bars everywhere.

The new Multifruit, which continues to feature unique components such as the extra-large opening to insert fruit and vegetables, stands out for its efficiency and robustness, as well as for its new finishes that make the Multifruit name stand out and give it an even bigger personality by including its logo right above the speed dial. The most advanced commercial juicer on the market is still available in five colours (Black, Cherry, Graphite, Silver and White) to match the style of your business.

Natural Vending by ZUMEX®, the new smart machines for quick, healthy juice ‘on the go’

Natural Vending by ZUMEX®, the new smart machines for quick, healthy juice ‘on the go’

The multinational’s new freshly squeezed juice vending machines, with a more transparent front and enhanced performance, are the smartest, most comprehensive solution available on the market

The company is once again spearheading innovation in the healthy vending market with its revolutionary freshly squeezed juice vending machines, which include a comprehensive remote control system with real-time metrics

Natural Vending by ZUMEX® is reinventing the experience of using and operating natural juice vending machines thanks to its telemetry kit, its integrated cashless payment system, a user-friendly display and an attractive and customisable design

Leading international companies such as Decathlon, L’ORÉAL, IKEA and VOLVO have chosen to install ZUMEX® Natural Vending machines in their headquarters, and the company is now launching them in new, fast-moving environments such as shopping centres, gymnasiums, schools, hospitals, and stadiums

Very little time and a fast-paced lifestyle. Consumers are increasingly choosing to eat between meals and outside the home, meaning snacking is on the rise and now accounts for almost 50% of meals.* Growing demand for snacks in the vending channel clashes with the lack of variety and poor supply of fresh, healthy products in this area. Against this background, ZUMEX®, a leading global strategic partner in the juice business, is once again at the forefront of the healthy vending market with its new smart cashless machines based on the “Healthy to go” concept.

The company has revamped its vending equipment line with the launch of Natural Vending, a generation of new smart machines with an attractive transparent design that offer a simple, fresh and healthy alternative to more discerning consumers and companies committed to the future.

Natural Vending is the evolution of the company’s high-performance automatic machines, designed with state-of-the-art technology. The new smart vending machines incorporate the latest advances in both telemetry and cashless payment methods. In addition, they feature a programmable cleaning system and a sophisticated, transparent design, making maintenance and management much easier.

Comprehensive remote control for optimal management of your vending business

ZUMEX® Natural Vending incorporates a new telemetry kit that provides businesses with simple yet comprehensive remote management of their pool of machines via a mobile app, based on a centralised control panel for improved visualisation of key business data such as:

  • Easy management of all machines, in any country, via a single user.
  • Updated information with real time data on sales and profitability, and the generation of sales reports.
  • Management of customised alerts to provide an immediate response.
  • Indication of the status of transactions and the types of payment used (note acceptor, coin acceptor and cashless).

In addition, the new Natural Vending machines feature a new cleaning system that can be programmed by choosing the start time or by setting it to start after a specific number of juice servings have been dispensed, without the need for a water intake. In addition, ZUMEX® vending machines improve the programming of your juice service with a new, user-friendly display that enables you to choose between two juice filling modes: either by number of oranges or by a precise cup filling system that allows you to select the exact amount of juice dispensed.

In short, these latest innovations reinforce remote monitoring of all machine functions with detailed information. Automatic planning of service routes, profitability analysis and an 80% reduction in downtimes are just some of the key results and benefits that make a difference to both distributors and end customers by improving profitability levels, maintenance and user satisfaction.

More flexible payments, more sales

The new ZUMEX® Nayax Cashless Natural Vending payment system offers one of the most advanced cashless experiences on the market and dovetails with the latest trends in payment transactions. The Nayax device provides customers with greater flexibility, ease of use and security; it supports different cashless payment methods such as credit and debit bank cards, as well as mobile payment and corporate staff cards, either by contactless, NFC, magnetic stripe or chip connection. In addition, the new payment reader enables voice interaction in the consumer’s local language, which constitutes a significant breakthrough in the field of unattended machines. All of this leads to more sales.

Look through the window into the world of juice

Finally, the brand’s innovation and design team has added greater transparency to the ZUMEX® Natural Vending machines which are now also available with a large window. This means that the customer can now choose between three window types: a single window, a double window, or a new large window through which the consumer gets a complete overview of the fruit travelling through the juicing process, using the Original System®.

Finally, Natural Vending models have a 100% customisable backlit cover, offering a unique, highly attractive image.

Natural Vending is a success story with amazing growth potential

Leading international firms and brands such as Decathlon, L’ORÉAL, IKEA and VOLVO have incorporated ZUMEX® healthy vending into their headquarters and are already offering it to their customers and staff. ZUMEX® Natural Vending offers a refreshing “Healthy to go” option with freshly squeezed 100% natural juice available 24 hours a day, anytime, anywhere in less than a minute.

Now the company intends to take this successful formula to new contexts such as shopping centres, gyms, schools, hospitals, etc. where consumers have little time and are looking for practical and healthy solutions. All you need is juice!

ZUMEX® presents the new Speed programme to customise your juice corner

ZUMEX® presents the new Speed programme to customise your juice corner

The firm is a strategic partner and a world leader and innovator in the juice business, introducing new ways to design the best juice corner for each space or store

Once again, the firm has anticipated the needs of the most demanding retailers, hoteliers and restaurant owners and, for the first time is offering a customised configuration of the Speed series, its flagship range of juicers catering for high juice demands.

Customers can choose between wide or narrow podiums and two different finishes, the sleek Black or the sophisticated stainless steel Mirror finish, for the Speed Up and Speed S+plus models.

The company has also presented a new range of accessories, such as the new bottle rack unit and a set of safety and hygiene accessories, which create a better equipped juice corner and increase the freshly squeezed juice options available in the store.

The demand for freshly squeezed juice is increasing by 5% every year, with orange juice continuing to lead the market with 46%* of world consumption. Thus, the sale of freshly squeezed juice is already a high-value service for all types of stores. These stores look to ZUMEX® Group, a world leader in the design and manufacture of exclusive juicing technologies for almost 35 years, as their strategic partner in the development of their businesses. To keep abreast with demand and developments in 2019, the company is launching its new Speed programme to make it easier for its customers to configure and tailor their entire juice corner.

Retailers, hotels and the restaurant sector, as well as other businesses with high juice demands, can now customise the Speed S+plus and Speed Up models, two of the products in one of the most powerful series on the market, to create the juice corner that best adapts to their space, reflects the atmosphere of their store, and provides an environment that their customers enjoy. The fact is that the needs of each business vary according to the number of users, the daily demand for juice and how the juicing technology is integrated into the store, among other factors.

This is why ZUMEX® has once again gone the extra mile and now proposes tailor-made solutions that can be complemented by a broad range of accessories to design highly attractive, efficient self-service juice corners. This world of opportunities that aims to give juice corners a highly impressive appearance was presented to the main players in the HORECA sector at the Sirha international trade fair held recently in Lyon. 

Design your very own juice corner

Whether you choose the Speed S+plus equipment, the top-of-the-range machine with the greatest number of features, or the Speed Up, the ideal and boldest companion for the evolution of your business in the world of juice, the Speed programme offers two styles and two podium sizes:

Narrow or Wide podium according to the space available. The narrow 70 cm podium optimises every inch of space and has one waste bucket for up to 55 litres or 25 kg. The wide 80 cm podium has two waste buckets which increase its capacity up to 100 litres or 40 kg of waste.

Black or Mirror finish to fit in with your store’s environment. The Black finish brings a sleek sophisticated look whilst the Mirror finish offers an elegant and shiny stainless steel look, including a two-position drip tray for glasses and bottles.

Once you have chosen the equipment you need, you can complete your juice corner with additional functional accessories, such as the bottle rack unit with storage space, which is ideal for organising the corner and facilitating self-service in the store, the bottle rack for self-service contexts, or the display cabinet, which keeps the bottles of freshly squeezed juice chilled and ready to go.

The safest and most hygienic juice corner

As if that weren’t enough, the company’s engineering team has also developed a series of new protection accessories that facilitate the hygiene and safety of self-service juice corners and include:

Cover to close the orange feeding basket

Feeder cover

Pulp Cover Kit to hide the pulp and maintain the attractive appearance of the machine at all times

Speed display cover to restrict access to the juicer’s electronic settings

Discover all the Speed options to grow your business and offer your customers a unique experience. All you need is juice!

ZUMEX is playing for high stakes in the USA and goes to NRA to present its new Speed S +plus line

Stand NRA

·As a novelty, the company presents its 1Step S and L Extraction Kits for the Speed S +plus machines series, two new add-ons which facilitate the juicing of large and small citrus fruit.

As well as the new series of Speed S +plus machines, designed to serve supermarket chains and hotels in particular, the firm also presents the new Versatile Pro with the 1Step Extraction Kit as standard, and its add-on, the 1Step S Kit.

ZUMEX® has become the leading strategic partner for juice business development for the most dynamic regional retailers in the USA, as well the most powerful national ones such as Albertson, H-E-B and Whole Foods Market.

ZUMEX® Group continues its penetration into USA and Canadian markets, and is present once again at this year’s NRA, the leading fair for the hotel and restaurant trade in the USA, held from the 19 to 22 May in Chicago and attended by more than 2,000 exhibitors and professionals from more than 100 countries. The perfect display cabinet for the firm, a world leader in the design and manufacture of innovative solutions for fruit and vegetable juicing, at which it presents its new Speed S +plus line, as well as the new Versatile Pro with 1Step Extraction Kit as standard.

New launches which strengthen ZUMEX®’s position as leading strategic partner for juice business development, already selected by large American companies such as Starbucks, Subway, Jamba Juice and Jugo Juice, which are putting their trust in solutions such as Essential Pro and Versatile Pro to offer maximum quality just-squeezed juice on their premises. At the same time, the robustness of the machines, their ease of use and speed of cleaning are just some of the key characteristics which have led to their being chosen by powerful retailers in the USA such as Albertson, H-E-B, Kroger, Safeway and Whole Foods Market, which already have ZUMEX®’s Speed series in their stores.

Speed S +plus, greater taste and convenience

The commitment to offering solutions which help its customers provide all consumers in the USA and Canada with easy access to fresh juice, has spurred the launch of the new Speed S +plus line, presented by the Spanish multinational at the American event. A new series of juicers which stands out for its innovative 1Step Extraction Kit that allows the juicing unit to be removed in one piece in just 10’’, without the need to disassemble it part by part, thus reducing the disassembly time and facilitating cleaning in the dishwasher or under the tap.

A solution completed by the new Extraction Kit accesories: the 1Step S for juicing fruit from diameter 45 mm to 67 mm, such as limes and lemons, and the 1Step L Extraction Kit for fruit of a large size, from 75 mm to 96 mm, such as grapefruit and oranges. All this means that a world of possibilities opens up for the creation of delicious fresh juice combinations in a single step, much more quickly and easily.

As well as providing maximum efficiency, performance and impeccable service, the fast and robust Speed S +plus juicers series incorporates other important properties such as the automatic PulpOut system, which allows the pulp to be removed more quickly, easily and hygienically, and the novel drip collection tray with 2 positions, enabling juicing both directly into the glass and into a bottle. All these features provide maximum quality and performance and optimise your day-to-day fresh juice service in high-demand spaces such as supermarket chains and hotels.

Versatile Pro, a great advantage in a matter of seconds

The new 1Step Extraction Kit is now also available for another of the solutions most in demand from retailers and convenience stores, our Versatile Pro, both in the tabletop model and in the version with podium. A lighter machine which allows you to create an easy, convenient and up-to-date self-service space. What is more, you can now change taste more quickly and easily in just one step thanks to the 1Step S Extraction Kit add-on for juicing citrus fruit of small size.

ZUMEX® Group, leading strategic partner for juice business development and world leader in the design and manufacture of fruit and vegetable juicing solutions for more than three decades, is present in more than 100 countries through a wide network of distributors and its five subsidiaries (USA, Mexico, United Kingdom, France and Germany), supporting its headquarters in Spain (Moncada-Valencia).

The company stands out for the development of patented technologies and Premium systems with three important lines of business: Food service & Retail, Food Engineering and Vending.
