Raisin collection Center

Once the grapes are sun-dried and they turn into raisins, they are delivered to a processing plant that collects them in wooden bins until the process order is issued.
The processes that raisins go through are two:

Proceso seco

The bins are emptied on a conveyor belt. The dry process begins by removing the bunch stem, it is doneby a kind of debranching machine. Through various vacuum units, the lightweight material and futile raisins are eliminated. Then, raisins are calibrated into three sizes: small, medium and jumbo, to be subsequently stored awaiting the process order that occurs when the raisins are commercialized.
The calibrated raisins are packed into wooden bins separated by size.

  • Jumbo over 12 millimeters
  • Medium between 8 and 12 millimeters
  • Small under 8 millimeters
Wet Process

Raisins are subjected to washing with an industrial detergent, (FM500) especially for food products.
Raisins are incorporated into a conveyor belt where the drying process begins then, they ran through a laser scanner and a metal detector. The useless raisins are automatically eliminated from the process. Finally, raisins go into oil (Durkex LC200) which only has a cosmetic function, improving their presentation.
