Ice Cream Blender BJ

Okanetsu Industry Co., Ltd., an agricultural machinery maker with a 70 year history in Okayama Prefecture, has developed an ice cream blender called BJ.

Designed with the motto of "keeping things simple so you can enjoy ingredients as they are," BJ makes it possible for anyone to easily make layered ice cream desserts with fruits and vegetables.

Creating opportunities for growth

Japanese farmers are now striving to diversify under Japan's "sixth industrialization," a government effort to encourage agricultural producers to branch out into processing, sales and distribution. Okanetsu Industry, which prides itself on reaching out to farmers and responding to their needs, developed BJ with this in mind.

In addition to offering farmers an opportunity for growth, it is being used in Okayama Prefecture and other places around Japan to revitalize local regions. The shops in Okayama, Fukuoka, Osaka, Nagano, Saitama and Kanagawa Prefectures (see list below) which serve BJ-made ice cream are also helping to promote locally grown produce.

BJ Features

Packed with the goodness of natural ingredients and easy for anyone to make

  • Easy to use: Simply pour in ingredients and blend
  • Instant grinding: Hard and frozen fruits are no match for BJ since it uses a farm tractor motor.
  • Direct: With its simple construction, it delivers the taste of the ingredients directly.

Change the combinations for limitless possibilities

  • Just pick your frozen and fresh ingredients and blend!
  • You can make original ice cream desserts customized to your shop
  • Perfect for cafes using local produce and farmers who are proud of their fruit
