IQF Sweetcorn Kernal
Sweetcorn cobs are delivered fresh to the factory and each load is sampled and assessed for grade, foreign material and physical defects. The cobs are then de-husked, inspected, and washed before the kernels are cut from the cob. The kernels are then cleaned, blanched, cooled, inspected, frozen and filled into cartons. Each pallet of frozen sweetcorn is sampled and assessed against specification. The pallets are then labelled and transferred to the cold store at –23°C until required for packing.
During packing the sweetcorn is 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 to the UK, cold store at –23°C, until despatched at –18°C.
