Heat Treatment

New Heat Treatment Facility

As a leader in hemp ingredient quality, we are thrilled to announce the addition of heat treatment to our current BRC AA+ certified facility in Ste. Agathe, Manitoba, to be completed in 2019.

Our equipment will be validated to provide a 5 log kill step, with validation performed via the protocol developed by the Almond Board of California (ABC), whose clear protocol pioneered the pasteurization of dried seeds and nuts. Process verifications will include monitoring of time, temperature, flow rate, and humidity, while Critical Control Points will be monitored for full control throughout the system.

Our equipment is designed to handle the product gently for optimum and repeatable quality. The final product will be tested for confirmation of reduction in microbiological organisms and consistent high quality with appropriate moisture level activity.
