Production process

The freshly harvested oranges received in the plant are de-skinned with the help of manual labour. The de-skinned oranges are put to screw-juicer to press out the orange juice. The juice is put into the steam jacketed kettle for evaporation of water in the juice. Then sugar and acetic acid is added in the syrup. The syrup is finally transferred to the bottle packing machine with a minimum temperature of 70°C.
