In the processing laboratory, the cuttlefish is gutted manually and it is washed in appropriate tanks with water in turbulence. At the end of this operation the product is placed in a freeze room, which maintains the temperature between  0°C and 4° C.

Frostbite occurs in an appropriate  tunnel, whose internal temperature reaches –40° C. Thank to the quickness for reaching this temperature, the finished goods don’t suffer any damages due to the water crystallization and they show an excellent look and taste when you eat them, too. The glazing operation, through which the food is covered with a thin layer of ice, allows a still better preservation.

The cuttlefish and the octopus processed by us are selected according to the size requested from the market and they are packed in I.Q.F. or in bulk. It is possible to realize different percentages of glazing according to the requirements of every single customer. Likewise we are able to carry out any particular cleaning processing of the shellfish.

Once frozen, the finished goods are placed in a freeze room, which maintains the product at –18° C. Then the goods remain inside this room until the shipping, which is executed with cooling motor vehicles. They maintain the temperature unchanging during the whole transport.

 
Sanitary self-control

Sanitary self-control

The project of sanitary self-control, which is observed by Ferr-Ittica, warrants the highest attention in all phases of food processing, from the daily disinfection of the premises and the tools employed in the shellfish cleaning, till to the constant recording of temperatures of product preservation in the freeze rooms. Monthly some laboratory tests are executed by a specialized facility. They are requested by the current regulations on the subject.
