FREEZE DRY PERFECTION THROUGH RIGOROUS CONTROLS

freeze-dry-perfection

Mercer Foods’ 240,000 square foot facility is at the center of our 20-acre campus. An extensive frozen storage system, both on and off-campus, is used for our incoming frozen ingredients. Finished freeze dried products are stored in temperature controlled areas prior to delivery to our customers. All of these systems are designed to maintain optimum product quality.

The packing rooms at Mercer Foods are humidity controlled and built with state-of-the-art technology to buffer against environmental conditions. This prevents contamination or spoilage of our freeze-dried foods due to excess moisture or foreign material. Dry processing, screening and milling areas are also contained to create a barrier of protection that ensures optimum product quality. This level of protection helps to ensure that each freeze-dried food order we send arrives in excellent condition.

QUALITY THROUGHOUT THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

Mercer Foods employs innovative and unique automated technology in many steps of our freeze-dried food production processes. We engineer and build nearly all of our freeze drying chambers and other systems.

Our freeze-drying machines and all associated equipment also undergo regular and thorough cleaning to prevent any possible intermingling of flavors, colors, ingredients, or allergens.
