Today JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. is specialized in extending the shelf life (ranging from several days to numerous months) and the packaging of dairy products and food. This involves products and packages that we daily run into on the shelves in the supermarket. For instance, plain white milk, flavoured milk such as chocolate (cacao) drinks, coffee drinks, cream, yoghurt (yogurt), desserts and fruit juices, but also soups, sauces, pet food (dog and cat food), fish or meat products and vegetables. Depending on the customer’s wish, JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. supplies single machines but also integrated lines for processing and packaging of these products. By continually analysing the developments within the entire supply chain of consumer-oriented food products, JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. is capable of increasingly gaining in-depth knowledge and broadening its know-how and expertise. This allows JBT to provide the industry constantly better, more effective and more efficient solutions for processing and filling a wide array of products in attractive consumer packages such as glass or plastic bottles, jars, jugs, pouches and metal (steel or aluminium) cans. 

JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. boasts a global network of offices and service centres.


JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. arose in 1915 with the takeover of the engineering works and the iron foundry, the Etna. At that time the activities comprised general equipment engineering and the manufacturing of machines for the chocolate industry. Rather soon after the First World War, JBT Food & Dairy Systems B.V. started with the production of complete installations and the construction of factories for the palm oil industry for which the former Netherlands East Indies constituted the main market area. Up until the Second World War, palm oil was the most important product. After the war the development of systems for the dairy and food industry, which had started in the 1930s, was vigorously continued.
