Vernon entrepreneur and apple juice aficionado Frank Deiter is making his national TV debut this week.
He was selected to "pitch" his Mobile Juice Factory to the 'Dragons' on CBC's Dragons' Den airing Wednesday, October 9, at 8 p.m.
Deiter, the founder of Okanagan Spirits in downtown Vernon, said he saw a need to use and not throw out all the fruit and apples that get destroyed every year in North America and the Okanagan.
...
"You know SunRype is using concentrate from China to make apple juice and we are throwing apples away, something is wrong with that," says Deiter with fervor.
...
If you are interested in seeing the Mobile Juice Factory in operation yourself, Deiter will be joining Hazeldell Orchard, the Chef's Association and the Kelowna Food Bank on October 19 to juice all the orchards apples and create a healthy local product for Kelowna's Food Bank.
"I have strong ethics. I am passionate with my conviction to reduce food wastage and to help entrepreneurs," says Deiter.
Three Mobile Juice Factory units sold during 2012 and are still operating in Southern Ontario, and British Columbia's Vancouver Island and Okanagan Valley.
The Bag-In-Box packaging the inventor uses was awarded 2013 Food Innovation Award from Ontario Farm Fresh Marketing Association.
Deiter of course couldn't share whether a 'Dragon' chooses to invest in his businesses, but he did share what it was like being on the show.
"Intimidating, the first ten seconds I thought I would die or sh%t my pants, after the first ten seconds I was pretty cool," laughs Deiter.

Our "Mobile Juice Factory" is the brainchild of Vernon's Frank Deiter, founder of Western Canada's first craft distillery Okanagan Spirits in 2004. Deiter believes in making the most of what we have in every way possible, and is passionate about preventing the wastage of Okanagan fruits. An award-winning World Class Distiller, Deiter resigned his association with Okanagan Spirits. Since May 2011, Deiter is pursuing new ventures as an international distributor of high quality European distillery equipment. Deiter offers his experience and knowledge as an instructor and independent consultant for start-up craft distilleries throughout North America. Just in time for the October 2011 apple harvest, Deiter has introduced the "Mobile Juice Factory" to provide service to orchards and the general public by converting their own fruit into their own juice using a totally sealed bag in a box concept.


American Distiller #114

Provincewide, the pioneer of the pack is Frank Deiter of Okanagan Spirits in Vernon. He produces a wide range of the fresh fruit brandy known as eau de vie, as well as an aged apple brandy he calls "Canados" (Calvados being a proprietary name in Normandy) and Taboo, the only authentic absinthe in Canada. Only a few months after he received his distillery licence in October 2004, he won the "Best Newcomer" title at the World Spirits Awards in Austria. This year, he was awarded Master Class status, the top prize at the event, and took home six gold and three silver medals as well. "To be recognized in the same bracket with some of the best distillers in Europe is just fantastic for Okanagan Spirits, fantastic for the Okanagan region and fantastic for the province," Deiter says. "I'm just happy that I love what I'm doing," he adds. He will tell you, though, that the process was anything but easy.

While Phillips made his from his own design, Deiter, Pipes and Winchester imported handcrafted, wood-fired copper stills from Germany at a cost of about $70,000 each.

It's especially frustrating, Deiter says, because fruit spirits are so much more expensive to produce than either wine or grain spirits. "Your yield is less, your cost is higher, and now the provincial government comes and adds a percentage gain on top of that," he says. "We could do a whole lot more if we had a similar deal to the wineries. "The wine industry did have the same challenge. Political changes were needed to make it an industry. And you only have to look around to see what it has become." British Columbia's artisanal distillers can't compete with the big multi-nationals in terms of price, production or marketing, but Deiter insists, "Quality is where we can stand out.
