manufacturing process of pineapple products viz.
Slices and Juice involves many steps and different
sub-processes. Ripe and matured pineapples are washed,
graded and peeled. Then they are crushed in the crusher
to obtain juice.
In case of slices, after peeling, uniform slices
are made on the slicer. Juice is then taken to vessels
and boiled and certain preservatives are added. It
is finally taken to storage tanks and packed in bottles
on vacuum filling machine. In case of slices, they
are dipped in sugar syrup for about 3 to 4 hours.
Then the slices are taken to lacquered cans and cans
are sterilized. While canning, sugar syrup is added.
Cans are cooled quickly and after sealing and labeling,
they are stored. The average yield is around 80%.
