Our IQF broccoli can be used in a variety of applications to create delicious tasting, healthy products. It is also ideal for foodservice and retail use. It offers all the flavour, texture, colour, nutrients and vitamins of fresh broccoli but with the convenience and longer shelf life of a frozen product, preventing wastage.
IQF Broccoli process:
The broccoli heads are harvested at different times of the year dependent on the origin. Once harvested the broccoli is promptly washed, quality checked, blanched, cut to size and individually quick frozen. The broccoli is rapidly frozen at incredibly low temperatures, which prevents the formation of ice crystals, allowing each piece of broccoli to remain free-flowing – ideal for manufacturers requiring identifiable broccoli pieces.
