Working process

The process is very well defined and helps to remove unwanted organic matter and bacteria. In fact, only ripe cherries are selected, subsequently placed in an aquarium, while the less dense, immature or “defective” ones float and are discarded. Afterwards the cherries are placed in closed tanks to start a 12-hour fermentation, then they pass on a large table where a group of women selects the best. Once the process is complete, the cherries are placed in the drying machines for 80 hours at 38 ° C, until the moisture content reaches 11%. Finally, the dried cherries are packaged in bags and sent to the dry decortication department.
