SELECTION



Fruit that is processed today, yesterday still hung from a tree. This fruit enters the warehouse and is placed in a tub to be washed by agitation, water and air. From there it goes on a selection conveyor belt where damaged fruit or fruit that is unfit is separated and discarded as bagasse. Unripe fruit is also separated and returned to the warehouse, where it stays the necessary time for it to ripen to be processed later.

PROCESS



In this process, fruit goes to the Pitting Mill, the Hammer Mill and the Pulping Mill. During this stage, the fruit is removed from its peel and pit which are discarded as bagasse and the pulp goes on to an enzymatic deactivation treatment so that it does not turn dark, then it goes on to two more mills: the Refining Mill and the Passing Mill where the fiber is extracted, leaving only the PULP.

PASTEURIZATION



The pulp is exposed to a higher temperature to ensure its pasteurization and then it is cooled at room temperature in the ASEPTIC filling area. This is done in 200 kg ASEPTIC bags, which are put into bins and then stored without losing their NATURAL FRUIT PULP characteristics. Storage time is 12 months, which guarantees that fresh pulp will always be used and that it will last until the next milling season.

FILLING



Once we have the beverage, we proceed to fill containers, not without first sterilizing the container material. This is done by converging the beverage in a chamber free of contaminants from the surrounding environment.

PACKAGING



When a product container is filled under the highest quality demands it becomes necessary to maintain this standard by protecting it with adequate packaging or wrapping.
