In the agriculture sector, Team Gemini develops an extensive scope of production infrastructure, from facilities that enable aquaponics and aquaculture products, to systems providing wastewater treatment and conservation, energy provisions, and more.
Added to this product line is Bucher’s extensive set of food processing technologies.

Of special significance to Team Gemini is the Bucher Unipektin division:
Bucher Unipektin is an expert partner and supplier of machinery and systems for solid-liquid separation, filtration, drying, juice processing and concentrate production, mainly for fruit juices and purées, but also for beer and instant products.
“In an agriculture production chain, one of the benefits of add-on technologies to standard food production is the flexibility of creating higher-value byproducts to reach more clients and create a better ROI,” evaluates Richard Haugner, Chief Technical Officer at Team Gemini.
“Bucher provides an impressive array of options that support a variety of industries, all while being energy-efficient and extensively vetted. Products of interest to us include their mills [for disintegration of core-fruit, berries, vegetables and herbs] and vacuum dryers [for continuous drying or freeze drying (lyophilisation) of malt, juice concentrate pre-dried or frozen fruit, vegetable and meat pieces], among others.”
As the environmental, economic, and other costs of outdated agriculture practices increase, businesses should strive to improve their Triple Bottom Line by implementing better products and resource generation solutions. Team Gemini and Bucher offer numerous turnkey solutions that maximize agriculture resource production and minimize negative impacts of required resource inputs.
