Karotia cleans their carrots with ozone
Karotia Oy is an awarded Finnish carrot producer that has been run as a family business ever since the start in the 1950’s and is one of Finland’s largest carrot producers. The long experience of growing carrots has led to a vast knowledge in the production. For Karotia quality control, research and development are very important factors and they strive to continuously improve their processes. This has taken the company to where it is today. Karotia has in their development given special attention to and passion for the growth of their award-winning Baby Carrots.
Karotia wanted an effective solution to clean and disinfect their baby carrots without affecting the taste. The aim of the additional cleaning step was to prolong the shelf life of the baby carrots, and thus, reducing wastage and increase profit.
The Ozonetech RENA Vivo B-series has now cleaned more than 1,000 baby carrots per hour for several years and is still up and running at high performance. The system is still successfully disinfecting the carrots without having any effects on the taste.
