In Linguaglossa, where our plant is situated, our technicians deal with the transformation of the raw material into several items, such as peeled almonds, almond flour and granulated almonds.
Particularly important is the modern peeling machine, with the potential to peel from 8 to 10 tons of almonds per day, followed by a modern optical sorting machine which allows us to be fast in identifying and rejecting foreign materials, as well as the rotten and the stained among the almonds.
After that, the almonds are further hand-chosen; then, they directly pass into the sizing machine and they are packed in 850 kg big bags or in 25 kg bags.
