Customer case

Blanche and chill carefully

About the client

The client is the biggest herb producer in France, with factories located in Spain as well.

The Challenge

To blanch and chill Aromatic herbs as carefully as possible due to their fragile consistency and sensitivity regarding temperature and time. The challenge was keeping shape, color, and taste while reducing germ.

The solution

A Cabinplant Forced Steam blancher with ambient air cooling.

The result

The Forced Steam blancher was the perfect solution to achieve all the wanted parameters. Despite a very short treatment time, we achieved a uniform heat treatment of the Aromatic herbs due to the Forced Steam technology.
