Pasteurisation

Pasteurisation

While the risk of contamination for almonds remains low in comparison to many other foodstuffs, the inherent risks associated with ground harvesting leaves the industry open to microbiological analysis.

In order to safeguard consumers and growers, Almondco has developed a unique system that eliminates the presence of pathogens with a chemical free natural process that uses a short jet of steam to clean the surface of every almond kernel. The beauty of this treatment is that the product retains all its natural attributes and can be re-activated while also meeting the food safety standards expected by many retailers across the globe.
