Our process is focused in 8 principal steps:
1. The Pecan Harvest
2. Sizing and Grading
5. Electric Sorting
Our processing facilities are equipped with the best technology available.
This allows us to crack, sort, grade, process and package pecan nuts every year. Once packaged, we store our nuts in cold rooms in order to mantain the ideal conditions until we send them.
Our 75,348 square feet plant process more than 30,000,000 pounds of pecans per year.
We also offer: custom shelling and custom packaging.
I. The Pecan Harvest
II. Sizing and Grading
Pecans are transported into our facilities where they are sized and graded before being stored.
Before cracking pecans, they are subjected into a cold water and hot water bath in order to disminish microbiological charge.
Pecans are mechanically cracked and sized.
V. Electric Sorting
Pecans go through electronic color sorting, inspection tables and finally sorting in order to reduce shells and foreign materials.
Pecans are boxed and weighed, generally packed in 30 lb corrugated boxes. At request of our customers we can do any requirement they need of packaging.
Finally every box goes through a metal detector to ensure that metal foreign objects get identified. At request of clients, we can treat pecans with polipropiline gas vacum chamber.
Pecans will be stored in cold rooms until the shipping.
