Technology and quality standards

1
Accurate calibration
of whole walnut

For this process, we use a separate calibrator with a primary cleaning function of 5 meters in length, this allows us to achieve 100% product hit in the calibre, while most companies continue to use one calibrator for all calibres at once, with a large selection error.

2
Washing with artesian water without the use of chemicals
On the territory of our production there is an own artesian well 170 meters deep, with a filtration complex. This allows us to use the purest water without chemical impurities for washing nuts. Washing occurs by passing the nut through the system of soft brushes, without using chemical or other additional processing. This allows you to achieve a high degree of purification and ideal appearance of the walnut, while maintaining its natural texture.

3
Equipment in accordance with food industry standards
All our equipment is made of food grade stainless steel that meets the highest standards of the food industry.

4
Accurate Temperature Drying Technology
The first stage of drying occurs due to the forced blowing of water residues with air flow, after which the nut is sent to specialized chambers for final drying, where it is dried at a temperature of 40-45 degrees with air circulation until reaching a moisture content of 7-8%

5
Manual sorting of defects by highly qualified personnel
After drying, nuts are sent on an automatic line for inspection, where manually our staff sorts out the defects in an accordance with strict regulations.

6
French line for walnut processing
Our production is equipped with the processing line of the French company 'AmbRousset' - the European leader in the production of agricultural equipment.

The whole nut is cracked and the kernel of the nut is placed in the drying chambers, where it dries at a temperature of 40-50 degrees, until the core reaches a moisture content of no more than 5.3-5.8%.

After drying, the core is sent to the calibrator vibro-separator, where it is calibrated into fractions 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, after which each fraction is separately sent to the separator for additional cleaning from the shell and partition. The nuts are then sent to the individual line to be sorted by color.


7
Food packaging
and storage
Our packaging line allows packing and packaging in all existing types of packaging that are required by the client. All packaging is certified and has the right to be in contact with food.

Whole walnut is packed in a European mesh bag.

The kernel of a walnut is packed, in boxes from a five-layer cardboard with grease-resistant paper on 10 kg. If necessary, we can produce additional packaging in vacuum bags for food 5kg to ensure biological safety during transportation and further storage.

Before shipment to the customer, packaged products are stored in our warehouse with a storage temperature of 3-8 degrees.
