Orange Bitter Peel 6x25mm
All fruit is washed and rinsed, prior to sorting to eliminate under and over ripe fruit, infested and damaged oranges. Fruit is conveyed to the Kelly machine which is set to quarter the oranges and separate the peel from the fruit centres. The peel is shredded to 6x25mm and then cooked to inactivate enzymes.
The orange peel passes through a metal detector and is either: a) hot-filled into lacquered cans or: b) pasteurized and filled into aseptic bags in drums. Finished product is stored at ambient.
