Unvalved - Gutted

In this part of the process, skilled operators separates the soft tissues from the valves and removes viscera, leaving only adductor muscle and gonad. This job is done with the help of a suitable instrument to prevent damages, like muscle breaking or cutting or coral detachment.

We use an automated system for both raw material distribution and waste removal.

Our rooms are air conditioned, so this environment is kept at temperatures below 15ºC. We use cold water (tº < 5ºC) for washing the product which ensures the maintenance of the cold chain.

Our Hygiene and Sanitation Plan minimizes the risk of cross contamination, with this and the fact that our raw material comes from controlled areas, we can use washing water with free chlorine residual <1.5 ppm, to we avoid a possible hyperchlorination
