Production

Providing the highest quality dried produce depends on a complex and tightly controlled production process. As such, UD Crops has a team of highly skilled professionals who ensure every product is always top-notch from the moment we harvest the vegetable all the way through packaging. From field to shelf, we take great pride in our work, which shows in every product that leaves our facility. Here's a quick look at what goes into our range of offerings.

Sourcing The Right Produce

We take great care to ensure that every product we harvest is as ripe and fresh as possible. After being chosen from our farm, it must pass a stringent quality process to ensure it is mature, free of harmful chemical dusting or pesticides, and safe for human consumption. Every step is traceable—from seed to finish product.

Unwavering Attention To Detail

Once we’ve found the right produce and harvested it, it's time to undergo a step-by-step process that will triple-check its quality and deliver superior products to consumers.

01 Washing

Produce is washed twice to remove dust, dirt, and other debris to ensure they are clean before additional processing.

02 Manual Sorting

Produce that is not suitable for drying is removed.

03 Metal Detection

Produce is sent through a state-of-the-art metal detector to remove any metal debris still present, no matter how tiny.

04 Cutting and Dehydration

Produce is sliced by advanced, automated cutting machines to the exact size needed. Diced pieces are then placed on a three-stage dryer, where moisture is evenly removed via temperature-controlled and multi-directional airflow chambers using varying temperatures.

05 Tertiary Sorting

Produce is sent through two X-ray machines. Built-in cameras automatically sort each piece according to size and color to maintain consistency in aroma and flavor. Samples from each product are then sent to an on-site laboratory to confirm they are safe and consistent with international standards.
