Brussel Sprouts 15-25mm
Sprouts are mechanically harvested and delivered to the factory. 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 sprouts are sampled and assessed against specification. The palletainers are then labelled and transferred to the cold store, where they are stored at -23ºC until required for packing.
During packing the brussel sprouts are inspected before weighing and filling into blue poly lined cartons. The cartons are Best Before and Production date coded, check weighed, metal detected, palletised and stretch-wrapped before being returned to store at –23°C to await despatch.
