Our processing facility allows for quick, efficient and sanitary processing of locally grown Alberta produce such as but, not limited to the following.
Our carrot peeling equipment allows for efficient production with minimal manual labor. The carrot is put through an automatic peeler that quickly removes the outside layer. The peeled carrot is then guided through a machine that trims off the ends. From there, the carrots are inspected for peeling quality, sizing and then sent down the line for sanitization and packaging.
Our stainless-steel machines cut, wash, and cool the lettuce down to the desired temperature. High power driers then spin the lettuce until it is ready to be packed and vacuum sealed.
Our semi-automatic machine cuts the top and tail end of every onion. Strategically placed razors then slit the peel. A high velocity blower sheds the outer layers away revealing a perfectly whole peeled onion. They are then sanitized and transferred to our dicing and slicing lines if applicable.
Broccoli and Cauliflower
Semi-automatic equipment allows for quick production time, minimal labor and reduced waste. The machine removes the florets from the stalk of the vegetable which are then sized, sanitized and inspected.
The potatoes pass through abrasive rollers that scuff and remove a majority of the potato skin layer, then hundreds of stainless steel blades give that homemade appearance of being cut by hand. The potatoes are then inspected, washed, treated, and packaged.
We have also recently added a new line that has helped provide the ability to chop and dice cabbage with minimal labor. Very popular for dumplings and coleslaw. The same machine can be used for both green onions and chives.
