IQF Yellow Split Peas
Dried peas are delivered to the factory. Each load is sampled and assessed for foreign material, seed size and physical defects. The load is then soaked for 8 hours, cooked, frozen and filled into bulk palletainers. The frozen split peas are sampled and assessed against this 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 peas 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.
