The procurement is done in refrigerated trucks.
Factory trained operators on grading, take delivery of the raw material, control the temperature of the products, leaf size and color salads. The products that do not match the standards are removed and returned to the grower.
Damaged outer leaves and stem are removed either mechanically or manually. Then, the salad leaves are washed by a shower system or bath. Salad leaves are rinsed by spraying or a shower.
Salad leaves go up through a staircase and fall into a bag which is then welded. Then, the bags pass through a metal detector one by one, to ensure that no metal parts are present in the product.
After bagging, the products are sent to the order preparation area. The cartons are taken, according to the FIFO (First In First Out) and filmed mechanically. Shipment of products is done during the day. The products are transported in refrigerated trucks.
