Washing and packing process
Just a few hours after harvesting, the carrots are washed with clean water in a large brush-washer. Here, soil, stones and other debris are washed off them. After washing, the carrots are graded in an optical grading machine, which can tackle up to 7 different sizes. Once the carrots have been approved, they finally undergo a manual grading process, after which they are sprinkled with ice water and packaged. After packing, the carrots are immediately put into cold storage at a constant temperature of 4-6° before being collected and transported in insulated refrigerated lorries out to our customers.
