Ketchup is still regarded as the number one condiment worldwide. And even though thousands of recipes to make ketchup have been published, and no matter whether it’s used to add color or flavor to meals and dishes, getting the taste and texture right is absolutely essential.

Ketchup manufacture: GEA processing solutions

Added prior to serving as a sauce or sometimes used during cooking to add a little extra zest to food, the role of ketchup as an important taste and flavor provider means that market growth is still strong. As markets change, however, and consumers demand more healthier options, we understand your need to provide top quality products.

Based on decades of experience, we’ve developed a complete range of components, technologies and integrated lines for ketchup manufacturing so that our customers can have the versatility to develop and process new recipes, scale up and diversify. Without compromising on quality — whatever your product range, plant capacity or layout — GEA can tailor solutions that work for you.

From highly engineered vacuum mixers, homogenizers, pasteurizers and piping solutions to process automation and clean-in-place (CIP) plant, we can tailor completely integrated ketchup manufacturing lines. We also offer laboratory and pilot plant testing facilities where you can try out new recipes and formulations and optimize process development, using a wide range of GEA systems and solutions.
