THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

Agripure is prepared to meet the challenges of the Commercial Food Industry to the highest standards in the World.

01

CLEANING

Agripure’s manufacturing processes with integral cleaning equipment remove unwanted plant matter and foreign material. Our in-house ‘state-of-the-art’ cleaning plant include the processes of: De-Stoning, De-Stemming, Optical Sorting, Gravitational Vibratory Sieving, Air Aspiration to remove dust and foreign particles,  and Metal Detection/Extraction.  
02

MILLING

Once cleaned, the Whole Spices are ground using German engineering, high efficiency milling technologies. The application of these technologies is tailored to different product categories (e.g. chilli peppers, turmeric roots, cumin seeds and black pepper corns), thus underlining Agripure’s position as a broad line custom processor. Our milling technologies include: Knife Mills & water-cooled Fine Grinding-Rotary Mills which can produce particle sizes from 400μm to 600μm. The Cool-Grinding System allows most of the volatile oils to remain in the spice, thus retaining more flavour & aroma characteristics. Agripure’s versatile milling systems will also produce products such as cracked black-pepper, crushed chilli and chilli flakes to customer specification.
03

CUSTOM BLENDING

Through PLC controlled pneumatic raw-material conveying systems, computer controlled recipe dosing & blending technologies,  we achieve batch to batch consistency with homogeneous results. Seasoning production easily scales from pilot trials through to large-scale production with blender capacity ranging from 250kg through 1.2MT. Blender technologies include: Ribbon & Ploughshare Tumble Blending.
04

PACKAGING

Bulk spices are usually packed in 25kg food grade poly-lined blue bags, Kraft Multi-walled Bags 20kg/25kg, up to 1MT Super Sack. Packaging formats include: Stand-Up DOY Pouches (with re-sealable plastic zip if required) in 50g, 100g, 300g, 1kg.  Poly-Lined Blue Bags 25kg. There is an additional packing line for Food Service PET jars providing a comprehensive range of Herbs & Spices. Sizes range from 120g to 500g.

GRINDING AND PACKAGING OPERATIONS

Agripure cleans its spices with their sophisticated cleaning plant prior to the milling process.
This ensures that all the impurities are removed from the produce before grinding, hence resulting in superior levels of purity, taste and aroma.
