I'm starting a juice company. After a considerable amount of research, I came to the conclusion that flash pasteurization is the best method of preservation for my particular beverage. As a start-up working with limited resources, (around 50k). What are the best ways to go about doing this?
Is my only option to outsource? If possible, I would like to keep the process in house. However, buying a flash pasteurizer is expensive. I've received quotes of 50k and up to set up a system. At first I would like to bottle the beverage myself in small quantities. Even if I were to outsource toll processors would most likely require a larger volume.
