Industrial: Individually Quick Frozen
Harvested at their peak, F&S Produce’s vegetable products are frozen using the IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) process. Each individual cut is trimmed, cleaned, inspected, and – after leaving the freezing tunnel – re-inspected before packaging. Finished product is either delivered to the customer’s plant or placed in our outside freezer-warehouse, according to the customer’s specifications. The IQF procedure optimizes the flavor, texture, and nutrition in the items we pack.
Our IQF line offers both standardized and specialized cuts to F&S Produce’s industrial clientele. Carrots, celery, red and green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, onions, and other vegetables, as well as blueberries and other fruits, all benefit from the IQF process. We will work closely with your R&D and QC departments to ensure that our products contribute to your production efficiencies and bottom line.
F&S works closely with industrial R&D and quality assurance departments to ensure that their products meet the needs of their customers. SQF certification allows F&S customers to have confidence that F&S products are safe to use in further processing. Microbiological specifications and other quality parameters are established and mutually determined between F&S and each customer.
