- Cooling. Blanched vegetables are cooled down by air drying machine before freezing.
- Freezing. The cooled down mixed vegetables are fed into IQF freezer. To ensure quality, the temperature is rapidly lowered to -18°C at the core of the product in the space of a few minutes.
- Weighing and packing. The frozen mixed vegetables are accurately weighted and packed, ready for storage or transportation.
