Broccoli Crumb 0-8mm (UK)
Broccoli is harvested, delivered to the factory to be floretted. Each load is sampled and assessed for foreign material and physical defects. The load is then cleaned, blanched, frozen, size graded and filled into bulk palletainers. The frozen broccoli is sampled and assessed against specification. The palletainers are then labelled and transferred to the cold store, where they are stored at -18ºC until required for packing.
During packing, the broccoli florets are inspected before weighing and filling into blue poly lined cartons. The cartons are Best Before and Production date coded, check weighed and metal detected, palletised and stretch wrapped before being returned to store at –18°C to await despatch.
