CiderSure - UV Light cider pasteurization technology.
The world's best alternative to heat pasteurization

FDA approved and validated by Cornell University
A product of Headwater Food Processing Equipment (FPE)


At Headwater FPE CiderSure, quality and safety are our biggest priorities. CiderSure has been providing FDA approved Ultraviolet (UV) Light processing equipment to the apple cider industry since we opened our doors in 1998. Every day, we strive to provide you with the best solution to cider processing, meeting all FDA  5 log purification requirements.  CiderSure is manufactured in Rochester, NY by FPE (Food Processing Equipment) which is a division of Headwater Foods, Inc.


One of the reasons that cider producers had resisted pasteurization is that it requires that the cider be heated – and heat changes the flavor and characteristics of cider. FPE CiderSure technology utilizes ultraviolet light, not heat, and light does not alter the flavor of the cider.  Maintain that fresh cider flavor your customers have grown to love.

Lots of companies can sell you their products and promise to treat you well. At FPE, providing great products and a personalized customer service experience are more than just words…it’s what we do. We only hire the best people who share our passion for CiderSure processing. That way, you know you’re being helped by people who know their stuff. “Good enough” is just not an option for us.


The Headwater FPE CiderSure charter starts with quality, taking to heart the needs of the customer first. FPE CiderSure has built its reputation on being the very best in the cider UV processing industry. Our process is validated by Cornell University College of Agriculture Food Science Department.


That reputation continues today, and will carry on far into the future. The customers of FPE CiderSure know that excellence is in the very foundation of the business. If you, the valued customer aren’t getting the highest level of service to meet your needs, contact us using the form on the Contact page.


Customer care and products improvements are a huge priority here at Headwater FPE. We genuinely care about our customers and go above and beyond to provide the best customer support. We do these things, and more, while providing you with the solution to your cider processing requirements at a good value.

We are always looking to improve ourselves. If you have ideas how we can make a better product or serve you better, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us today

This may be the silver bullet that saves the cider industry.
