Israel-based Hefestus is launching its automatic packaging-system solution for cleanly separating pomegranate peel from arils and separating the individual pomegranate seeds. This advanced technology allows beverage producers to squeeze fresh, delicious — and super-trendy — pomegranate juice from just the arils.

Pomegranates can be consumed as a whole fruit, ready-to-eat arils and as juice. Nevertheless, the fruit is hard to process since peeling and deseeding the arils from the fruit is complicated and expensive for consumers and manufacturers. Following the successful launching of its ready-to-eat pomegranate packaging solution last year, Hefestus is proud to introduce a comprehensive solution for separating pomegranate seeds from the peel in an automatic process that enables beverage producers to easily extract the juice from the arils, yielding one of the most popular and most delicious superfruit juices, yet without bitterness typical to juices derived from the whole fruit.
