China is the original place of tea, but also the birthplace of tea culture. Black teas, green tea, oolong tea, white tea, yellow tea, Pu’er tea …… all are dazzling. According to scientific measurement, tea contains protein, fat, more than 10 kinds of vitamins, as well as polyphenols, caffeine and lipopolysaccharide, which can regulate physiological functions and have a wide range of health and pharmacological effects. Tea can not only refresh and eliminate fatigue, but also can prevent heart attack and clear the body of excess free radicals to inhibit and kill pathogens. In addition, tea drinks can also purify water and reduce radioactive substances detrimental to the humans. Therefore, drinking tea frequently can make one calm down for better health.
Currently, as the “natural, healthy, returning to nature” way has become the first choice of healthy lifestyle for more and more consumers, ready-to-drink tea beverages are everywhere, which greatly increases market saturation. Many of the tea beverage manufacturers have mushroomed crazily, which indicates a thriving prospect for Chinese tea industry.
China Fujian New Oolong Co., Ltd. is China’s first to produce oolong tea concentration for foreign markets and the first enterprise to use PET bottle for filling oolong tea. Cooperating with Japan Ito En, Ltd. for many years, the enterprise selected Fujian special oolong tea as ingredient and manufactured oolong tea concentration and PET bottled oolong tea drink with no sugar, no coloring, no additives with the advanced technology in Japan, which are all exported to Japan, USA, Hong Kong , the Philippines and other countries and regions.
A dozen years ago, as the company’s authorized agent of Fujian Tea Import and Export Co., Ltd., Japan’s Ito En, Ltd. introduced the Fujian oolong tea to Japan, where tea consumption brings an unprecedented boom. Currently, the concept completely natural without any additives of Ito En beverage has been firmly established in the public.
With the rapid increase of living quality, the awareness of pursuing health of domestic public is also increasing and sugar-free bottled drinks win popularity and admiration with a huge market demand, which also opens the door for Newamstar to cooperate again with the new Oolong.
Back in 2003, when there were only a handful of domestic beverage sterilizer manufacturers, Newamstar cooperated with Oolong on the plate UHT sterilization machine. Reliable, stable, mature technology deeply impresses the new Oolong. Nine years of after-sales service and affectionate greetings leads to a sweet harvest.
In April 2012, the New Oolong delegation first set foot in Zhangjiagang land, and came to famous Newamstar for a comprehensive inspection of equipment. Subsequently, they required Newamstar to provide equipment supporting solution according to technical indicators. In May, after inspecting the views at all sides, carefully researching the equipment advantages and carefully considering the value of the entire production line, the New Oolong determined to order a 18,000 bottles / hour PET bottles ultra-clean (medium temperature) filling production line from Newamstar. Compared with ordinary hot filling, its advantage lies in having aseptic filling environment (one hundred-class requirement for pharmaceutical clean room), and the use of peracetic acid solution sterilization on the packaging material for a thorough sterilization.
At the beginning of the design, to meet and reach a variety of Japanese rigorous performance and technical requirements, we determined to use the central control unit for monitoring and recording at any time of the entire line operation, and we could use the online printer to print the records of the customer’s monitoring and sampling; while the purchased parts are carefully selected for customers convenience, with the priority to select excellent suppliers with the verification documents in line with international standards. Detailed data showed deep love.
Newamstar embarked on implementation of the project plan, and the new Oolong was more concerned about the environment. In order to meet strategic initiatives of the new line, New Oolong stroke out and resettled in the new plant in the Special Economic Zone in Fuzhou Mawei with a long history. Surrounded by mountains at three sides, the factory is located in the Minjiang River with beautiful natural environment.
In January 2013, Newamstar engineering installation team settled in Mawei new plant of New Oolong, but the new plant only had the main structure just completed with no walls around the plant and the civil engineering was also being constructed, posing potential safety hazards. After consultation with the new Oolong, Newamstar dispatched personnel for caring. During the entire installation and commissioning, our tools and parts were intact.
After six months of struggle, equipment entered the commissioning phase. In order to produce before the Japanese Board members came for visit, we made joint efforts with the new Oolong. During the new plant construction, installation of new equipment, the old plant of new Oolong was in operation to ensure production. Much capacity and short delivery time made it difficult to extract manpower from the old plant for learning and commissioning of the new plant. By overcoming the shortage of staff and late energy supply, we worked overtime every day to ensure the quality and quantity in finishing commissioning work ahead of time. Then we ensured about 20 tons of trial production for discovering the problem and improving the equipment, and we strived to adjust the equipment to the optimal performance.
Currently, the project of new Oolong has come to an end and the whole production line has been running continuously with zero faults, which is indeed a happy and perfect ending. Away from the additive and sugar, Oolong tea of true color, pure taste, and mellow taste brings consumers sincere and comfortable consumption experience, bringing a touch of freshness and warmth to the entire beverage market. New Oolong seizes the opportunity to have flourishing brand reputation. Through the successful project operation of the new Oolong, Newamstar not only has a competitive edge in the field of mechanical design with more humane and intelligent development, but also adds weight for Ito En, Ltd. to go to the international market.
New oolong, new start, new hope. Newamstar, new directions, new takeoff. For the common pursuit of the same dream, we walk all the way together for sustainable cooperation and forever friendship.
