Now Organic in Dalian has started to develop with certifying own organic fields in 2006, in total now around 42 hectares. Through the years we focused more and more towards growing organic ginger and managing several ginger projects in the same region.
Please take a look at the slide chart.
In order to get full control in the whole process we established our own ginger processing factory. The ginger processing factory is operational since the autumn of 2014. The total storage capacity is around 3.000 MT in three separate cold stores. The washing line is full automatic and can process two MT an hour. Fifty percent of the water usage is saved because of the installation of a water recycling system. All the installed equipment is brand new and sustainable in terms energy and water consumption.
Processed fresh ginger is mainly exported to Europe to provide our customers with pallets or full container loads. The juice industry has more and more demand for organic ginger juice. A lot of new drinks are mixed with ginger juice so the demand is growing rapidly. The fresh ginger is processed into juice in a specialized factory in the Netherlands. After processing the juice is bottled in drums and 20 KG bag in box packaging for the industry to make blends. Pure organic ginger juice is bottled in jars for the retail and food service market.
From our storage in The Netherlands we are able to serve our customers worldwide.
In the near future we will also start with organic ginger puree, frozen dices and slow juiced ginger and turmeric juice.
