How are Green Long Raisins Produced?
Green Kashmari Raisins are obtained from high-quality grapes grown in Kashmar located in northeastern Iran. The region is historically famous for its top-quality, delicious yellow grapes.
The pre-treatment of grapes after harvest includes dipping them in blanching liquid that accelerates the dehydrating process by making tiny pores in the grapes’ outer layer. Pre-treated grapes are then hung from a scaffold (in a dry and disinfected area) and left to dry in the shade.
The blanching liquid also stabilizes the green color of the raisins. Sometimes, it is sprayed on grapes instead of dipping. Pre-treated grapes (now Green long Kashmar Raisins) are then transferred to the factory to receive their final treatment, which involves:
- Double washing to remove impurities
- Double Laser sorting to remove defects
- Visual sorting for size and defects
- X-ray sorting to remove foreign objects
- Metal detection to sort out foreign objects
- End product fumigation to remove insects and eggs
To select top-quality raw materials, we perform a knowledge-based analysis that keeps records of the vineyards in the region. Dried grapes that have the most compatibility with our quality standards can continue the processing.
