“Everything we do at WP Rawl, we do with the consumer in mind,” said Jim Zurbey, Director of Plant Operations. “Our overall efficiency and product quality will benefit from this state-of-the-art revamp, which ultimately benefits our customers and the end consumer.”
The newly installed production lines feature the most current and up-to-date processing in the fresh-cut industry, including a two-step wash process and fresh water rinse prior to drying and packaging. This thorough washing and cleaning ensures that the nutrients, flavor, and color and delivered to the consumer without compromise and without damage to the leaf structure, according to a press release.
