"Transportation costs are a huge economic factor in any farming operation. The closer the farm is to local markets, the more value a farmer can derive from their products...not to mention the reduced negative environmental impacts."

Freeze drying is a gentle dehydration process used for high quality preservation of perishable foods.

Beginning in the 1950s, industrial freeze drying of foods became more widespread. Coffee was one of the first freeze-dried foods to be produced at an industrial scale. Today, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, herbs and food flavouring can all be successfully freeze dried.

The final freeze-dried product typically contains between 1% and 4% moisture. Final food products are nitrogen sealed and packed.

They can be stored between 6 months and 3 years in polybags, and 25 years or longer in cans.

Freeze-dried foods possess superior quality. The high quality is due to the absence of a liquid phase, as well as the low temperature of the process. Freeze drying preserves flavor, color, and appearance, while minimizing thermal damage to heat-sensitive nutrients.


In addition, the texture is well preserved due to the process occurring in a solid state. Freeze-dried products are typically crisper and have re-hydration ratios four to six times higher than conventional air-dried foods. Other key benefits of freeze-drying include the high recovery of volatiles, retention of structure and surface area, high yield, long shelf life, and reduced weight for storage, shipping, and handling.
