Concentration occurs through evaporation within a vacuum inside stainless steel tanks. The temperature of 65°C helps to retain the flavour properties of the product.
The concentrated paste is ready for packaging once it has been heated to around 92ºC to ensure that it is microbiologically stable. The empty packages are steam-treated to eliminate any impurities. Once filled, they are then cooled with water.
