It all starts with the preparation of the avocados. Upon arrival, the avocados are pre selected and then washed and sanitized in a 20 minute rinse, scrub and deep bath.

The ripening process in our state of the art rooms allows us to control the level of ripeness of the avocados in order to have perfect avocados for our guacamole, every time.

We are very careful of only using avocados that still have the stem (tupo) still on the fruit. It is our seal of guarantee that the avocado is completely sealed from external contamination. By removing the Tupo (stem) before entering the facility, GoVerden mitigates the opportunity for foreign matter infiltration, dental injury and choke hazards.

Each avocado is individually hand scooped in order to maintain the firmness and texture of the fruit. This allows superior taste and texture in our guacamole. This is a highly time consuming and labor intensive operation but it is also what sets GoVerden apart from others.

Every individual unit (cup, tray, tub, pouch) is screened by metal detectors before being packaged to ship. The detection process identifies metal, non metal and even stainless steel, with particles as small as 0.06 inches.

It’s all about efficiency! A spiral freezer allows us to fully freeze the product within 20 to 40 minutes.
This way we can produce, HPP, freeze, pack and ship our customer’s products in the same day.

Another of our customer´s priorities is maintaining the required temperature of the guacamole in all stages of the process. For that, we keep close control of the cold chain from the start of production up to when the product is shipped out. Therefore the stage from product refrigeration to shipping is closely guarded in what we call a “transition area”, which is a temperature controlled hall that connects our freezer and loading dock doors.
