CRL is in a purpose-built food processing unit giving food processors unique access to co-packing sterilisation services by utilising the site’s ground-breaking Torpedo retort technology.
As an accredited AA grade site against the BRC v7 Global Standards for Food Safety, coupled with over 30 years’ technical expertise on site, assures both food safety and process quality are achieved.
Our passion for food and process has enabled us to deliver a high-speed system of sterilisation delivering a thermal consistency across each unit and batch without compromising on quality due to over-processing normally associated with conventional batch retorts.
We work closely with our customers to provide a bespoke thermal processing solution by offering a value-added, shelf stable ambient product with the benefit of uniform food quality performance, increased retention of food flavour and texture whilst maintaining product aesthetics.
Standard pack formats include Laminate Pouch, PP Pots and PET Bottles all with pack sizes up to 500g. Ability to process both thin and more traditional heavy gauge cans and glass jar packaging is also possible.
Additional services are available including the onsite processing of liquids and semi solids into Laminate Pouches.
