Courgette Quarter 5-7mm
Courgettes are harvested, trimmed, delivered to the factory. Each load is sampled and assessed for foreign material and physical defects. The load is then cleaned, inspected, cut and sliced, blanched, cooled, frozen and filled into bulk palletainers. Frozen courgette is sampled and assessed against specification. The palletainers are then labelled and transferred to the cold store, where they are stored at -18°C until required for packing.
During packing, the courgettes are inspected before weighing and filling into blue poly lined cartons. The cartons are Best Before and Production date coded, checkweighed and metal detected, palletised and stretch wrapped before being returned to store at -18ºC to await despatch to the UK at -18ºC.
