GREEN CHILI PROCESS LINE

The Process chart below defines the quality at each stage of production.

Receiving & storage of raw material

The raw material is received after inspection and is stored at ambient temperature and low humidity.

Sorting

The material is sorted to identify and remove any damaged, spoiled or rotten chili.
