Food safety comes from extended vegetable disinfection time

//Food safety comes from extended vegetable disinfection time

Food safety has always been a concern in the fresh-cut industry. For ready-to-eat vegetables such as lettuce, the entire cleaning process usually takes 2 to 3 minutes, which is too long for conventional cleaning lines. Therefore, a cleaning line with an extended launder is necessary to ensure the cleanliness and safety of vegetables.

Recently, Lueon Technologies Co., Ltd. has developed a leafy vegetable processing line for BGH Holdings Pte. Ltd. in Shenyang, China. “The cleaning line lengthens the cleaning and sterilization cycle. The narrow and long launder channel effectively increases the time that vegetables are soaked in water. The equipped filtering device can further separate gravel, soil, and sand from the product,” Valencia introduced.

“In addition, it is worth mentioning that this line is equipped with a system that can monitor the PH value of the water online and automatically add disinfectant and citric acid. With this system, the cleaning line is able to further reduce the microbial content and better safeguard the processed vegetables,” Valencia Yu, sales manager of Lueon added. “Food safety is of great importance to everyone’s health. Only by controlling the quality from the processing plant at the source, can the quality and the safety of consumers be assured.”

Lueon Technologies Co., Ltd. was established in 2003 and is one of the leading machinery manufacturers in the fresh-cut salad and vegetable industry in China. For many years, Lueon has been committed to developing, designing, manufacturing, and providing specialized equipment and solutions for vegetables and fresh-cut salads, including peeling, slicing, cleaning, drying, and sealing. 

“We provide services to more than 210 factories, and the fresh-cut vegetables produced with our equipment are supplied to more than 8,000 fast-food chains in China every day, including KFC, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Dico’s, Kungfu, and Haidilao,” Valuncia said. “As more and more overseas customers are making inquiries of cost-effective processing equipment for leaf vegetables, we have also set our sights on the international market to help more customers produce high-quality fresh vegetables.”
