A food processing room has everything your agri-food business needs to safely and efficiently get your products flying off the shelf this year.  Using a commercial kitchen’s food processing room is a great way to support local businesses while expanding your own.  

High Hygiene Happens in the OAFVC Food Processing Room

The OAFVC food processing room has everything you need to get your product through the processing stages and ready for sale. Consider all the possibilities for your business with  these features at your disposal: cold pressing, dehydrating, washing, slicing/dicing, peeling, shredding and centrifuge drying.

So Fresh and So Clean

The hygiene bath, a major component of food safety, uses Microkill - a bleach and alcohol-free cleaner that lets you soak and clean your produce with the environment in mind.

Self-loading produce baskets take your cleaned produce to the sorting table for your next process, ie. chopping or slicing and then packaging. Don’t worry about anything getting spoiled when you can maintain the temperatures you need to meet all food safety standards with adjustable controls in the OAFVC food processing room.
