The factory layout is the following: the fresh vegetables enter the production line, they undergo a first stage of processing, which can vary depending on the type of product. After this phase, which may be washing, sorting, cutting, blanching, the product is transferred on the belts, which transport it inside of the drying hoods, where it is hit by a stream of hot and dry air, which eliminates the water contained in the fresh product.

Through various stages, at controlled temperatures, variable in function of the product type, the vegetable comes out at the end of the line (about 90 meters long) with a less than 5% water content.
