Our nut processing provides us with large, high-quality pistachios with a high % of naturally split pistachios. We process 100% organic pistachios.
Once the batches of pistachios are received from our agricultural partners, the continuous process of nut drying and shelling beings. There is no more human intervention to monitor proper operations during this process, which is completed using special machinery.
Of particular note is the special low-heat drying system. At SAT Del Campo, we use a linear drying process so that the pistachio does not have to withstand excessive weight. By doing so with a limited flow of product, we are able to achieve less friction, with more efficient, impact-free drying. Pistachio shells that are free from buffer marks and stains.
To achieve the excellence we strive for at SAT del Campo, our organic pistachios pass through 24 steps:
Statement for traceability
Unloading the nut
Eliminating leaves and stems
Eliminating the external cuticle
All batches delivered by farmers are weighed
We will determine the physical quality of the pistachio
With a blast of heat that dries the shell
Separating the pistachios
Separating the pistachios that have not been peeled
Sifting empty pistachios (table separator)
Three modules, personalised advancement speed
Temperature and humidity
Checking both parameters
Separating slit and closed pistachios
Breaking the closed pistachios to remove the nut
Separating those that are split and closed, size and weight
Quality control with an optical machine
Manual quality control
Analytics accredited by the ENAC
Big Bags, 5 Kg bags...
