Larders used for the storage of carrot and other root vegetables are equipped with cooling, moistening and ventilation systems controlled digitally. It allows for extending the storage time to maximum.
Carrot is stored in the temperature of about 0.5°C at high air humidity – around 98%.
Carrot is harvested after its roots are fully ripe; then its temperature is rapidly lowered in larder fridges.
After that, carrot is transported to larders with the capacity of 17,000 tons. Already there, carrot is stored in wooden box pallets, which makes it easier to maintain proper ventilation as well as supplying carrot to production lines.
Our onion storehouse is composed of six chambers with perforated concrete floor. Ventilation, drying and cooling systems guarantee the highest quality of the product for a very long time.
After the harvest, onion is intensively dried and afterwards it is stored in the storehouse.
In the storehouse chambers, onion is stored loose up to 4.5 metre high. Both ventilation and cooling systems operate throughout the storage period, which ensures optimal temperature and moisture.
The onion storage process is controlled by an IT system and is supervised by our qualified staff.
