About Omega Juicers
Omega Juicers' History
Omega Juicers develops some of the most efficient and reliable commercial capacity juicers on the market today. Omega’s founder, Robert Leo, spent over twenty years at the helm of a pioneering juicing company listening to consumers and crafting a product concept that could deliver what clients wanted. Armed with industry experience and a clear vision, Leo launched his own company in 1985. Originally called Olympic Products and later renamed Omega Products, we are still the only company on the market that offers consumers centrifuge, masticating, and pulp ejection style juicers.
In 2009, Omega was acquired by the Legacy Companies. The Legacy Companies was founded in 1998 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and currently owns such world famous foodservice brands as General Slicing, Maxximum, and Zeroll. Despite the rise of countless imitators, Omega has proven that a solid foundation and consumer driven design is the only way to achieve enduring success.
As the industry has flourished and grown to include a larger number of providers and health conscious consumers, Omega’s product offerings have also evolved. Omega’s flagship juicers are the Centrifuge style juicers which extract 20% to 30% more juice then others, and utilize a vertical stainless steel basket to consistently spin juice out of pulp for a silky smooth drink. The “Pulp Ejection” style juicers that are also part of the Omega line feature a receptacle bin that catches all refuse from produce and makes cleanup and disposal quick and simple without sacrificing power or speed. Omega’s “Mega Mouth” facilitates productivity even further with a oversized feed chute that accommodates extra large portions and even whole fruits. In addition, Omega’s “Masticating” style juicers help health conscious consumers add wheatgrass and leafy greens to their juice because of an 80 RPM “low speed juicing system” that reduces heat buildup and oxidation while keeping healthy enzymes intact.
Apart from producing several models of commercial capacity juicers, Omega offers clients a selection of powerful blenders. With three blender series to choose from, users can pick the horse power, capacity, and blending features that they need. Every blender in the 200 series is constructed with ample capacity commercial grade polycarbonate containers and intuitive controls. By providing a variety of power and control options, Omega allows clients to streamline operations without compromising versatility. The 300 series blenders give users even more options. They feature commercial grade Tritan containers, an optional stainless steel container for frozen drink blends, an advanced coupling system that allows all components to be seamlessly fitted, and a slip resistant base that keeps every blender steady, even on slick work surfaces. For even more power and precision, look to Omega’s 600 blender series which delivers consistently refreshing blends thanks to potent 2HP and 3HP motors, high capacity containers and intuitive controls – an ideal combination for fast-paced commercial kitchens.
The Drink Dispensers & Granita Machines
Aside from producing various juicers and blenders models, Omega has also designed drink dispensers and Granita machines that allow product to be cooled, mixed, and displayed in a compact, energy efficient container.
Omega also designed the Food Pro premium processor in response to the all-natural food movement to better accommodate consumers who are devoted to healthy living. Beyond the extensive selection of products, Omega brings an unparalleled commitment to service to the juicing industry through a 5 to 15 year product warranty - a feature that blows typical two year warranties out of the water.
Recent Product Introductions
Omega has consistently raised the bar for juicer engineering and design. So much so that the next product scheduled for production incorporates a decidedly vertical stance.The contemporary design is complemented by a virtually indestructible ULTEM juicing screen that will withstand heavy duty juicing. The VRT is as compact as it is productive. Most juicers process at high speeds that destroy enzymes and cause juice to degrade quickly but the VRT350’s Low Speed Juicing System processes at 80 RPM. This prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored for up to 72 hours without degradation. The VRT350 also features an innovative auto cleaning system that keeps the screen clear during juicing and increases overall efficiency. With the VRT350, form and function combine to give you the highest degree of extraction and the healthiest possible juice.
Omega Teams Up With Sunkist & GNC
Omega recently began cobranded projects with world famous brands Sunkist, a premium citrus producer, and GNC, a global specialty retailer of nutritional products. In May 2010, Omega became the only non-produce company authorized to use the Sunkist brand name. Four months later, Omega and GNC entered into a worldwide licensing agreement for development and production of GNC branded foodservice products. Complementary products and a shared commitment to exceptional quality make both partnerships beneficial for the companies and consumers alike.
