Fruit & Vegetable


Bepex has roots dating back to the early 1930s within fruit and vegetable processing. Starting out with Rietz Manufacturing operating in the expansive California produce industry, our history is rich with operations to grind, puree, cook, dry, and press a variety of fruits, vegetables, and related materials. We have continued to add to this extensive portfolio of applications, to include fine grinding, thermal modification, and flash drying. Our latest focus has been centered around plant or vegetable-based proteins, including work with our PCX Flash Dryer to provide a flexible, yet efficient drying process. Contact us today to learn more about our experience in supplying continuous fruit and vegetable processing systems.


Pressing & Juicing

Bepex has long been involved in mechanically pressing whole fruits and vegetables, working to extract valuable juice, or dewatering materials prior to drying. Our most common applications include coconut milk, apple juice, and various vegetables for inclusion in health drinks.

Fiber Drying

Bepex has provided fruit and vegetable fiber recovery systems to grind, press, and dry downstream of juice presses to reclaim value from what had previously been a waste stream.

  • Grinding pepper mashes to a visually homogeneous product for hot sauce and salsa production
  • Grinding whole tomatoes to paste before downstream cooking
  • Pureeing a variety of vegetables for inclusion in baby foods



Bepex has processed, tested, analyzed, and worked with over 5,000 different materials. Our specialty is developing a custom continuous process system to best meet your material, production needs, and quality requirements. Learn more about some of our commonly developed processes below.
