Method

In-pack cooking and pasteurisation

Micvac offers a smooth, modern production method based on in-pack cooking and pasteurisation in one continuous process. Each tray is filled, sealed and then pasteurised while passing through a microwave tunnel. The easiest way to get a grasp of the method is to watch this video.

3. Cooking and pasteurisation

The now sealed package is cooked and pasteurised in a microwave tunnel. During pasteurisation the valve opens to let out steam, and with it all oxygen. The valve closes and a vacuum is created.

4. Cooling

The pasteurised and vacuumised meal moves on into a cooling unit, and now the fresh-made meals are ready for the store shelves.
