We are Sofruco Foods, part of the La Rosa Sofruco Agricultural Society, we are experienced harvesters, thanks to our quality and 100% natural products, which make us pioneers in the agroindustrial area.
We have multiple agricultural product categories, such as: fresh fruits, dehydrated fruits, nuts, bee and palm honey, and 100% natural juices. Each of these products is located in Peumo, Sixth region. This place has13,767.01 hectares with land that is ideal for our crops, in which we grow a large variety of healthy products.
The process of tenderization consists in the application of water vapor at high temperature and water absorption by the dehydrated plum to recover a humidity of 30% in order to “tenderize” (soften) the texture of the pulp and thus make it More gentle and pleasant to be consumed.To achieve this, first make a selection of fruit by leaving out the defective fruit. Then the fruit passes through a tenderizer, which gives it the required moisture, then to be stripped by two types of machines, depending on the caliber of the fruit: we have six Asholck gin and an Elliott gin, with capacities between 1,000 to 1,500 kg per hour.The fruit stripped through a detector of whole stones and fragments with a laser system. Then a manual selection is made in which the damaged fruits are removed. This is followed by the application of the Preservative Potassium Sorbate, the free-fall metal detector and the packaging, depending on the market to which the product will be sent.
Once harvested, the plums are transported to the agro-industrial plant where they are processed in a fresh calibration line with a capacity of 18,000 kg per hour and separated into three sizes: Large, Medium and Small.
Then, the fresh fruit, sized for size, is entered into a line of embankment, where the trays are loaded with the fruit and exposed to a hot air flow in drying tunnels. We have two lines of capacities of 9,900 kg and 4,500 kg per hour.
The fruit is dried for a period of 18 hours in these gas furnaces and once dehydrated it is taken to the storage warehouses for its stabilization. Once the fruit has stabilized, the dehydrated plum is calibrated in a line of latest technology with a capacity of 4,500 kg / hr.
The juice plant Sofruco has a modern production line, where our 100% natural juices are mostly made with fruits grown and harvested in our own funds.
These facilities have a process line where fruit (orange and grapefruit) are selected, washed and squeezed, which are squeezed in an FMC machine, with capacity of 6,000 lts per hour.
Immediately the juice passes to the zone of high hygiene, where the accumulation ponds, cooled and pasteurized. Once pasteurized juices are packaged in separate lines for 1 and 5 liter formats. In this way our consumers enjoy 100% natural fresh juice.
Sofruco has facilities with processing lines for stone, citrus, avocado, pomace, kiwifruit and grapes, which are able to process 100% of the production of our fields.
They operate during the 365 days of the year, and we have lines that have the latest technology and cold rooms for all of our fruit, with a pre-forced air supply and maintenance chambers.
