18 Getting Ready For the Winter Season

Getting Ready For the Winter Season

Posted on August 21, 2012 by team

Harvest is now being gathered  and it is a hot time for plants making canned food. For some of you this might seem not very appetizing but we’ll take the risk to show you how cucumbers and tomatoes are canned at one factory of Russia.

Vegetables come to the warehouse.

On the conveyor they further go to the production shop.

Cutting and sorting. Some workers have gloves on, others don’t… They touch the food!

Her gloves?

Thermal processing. Should smell yummy!

Putting into cans

Does she taste it with the same spoon?

No spoon is required here.

Ready produce

Want some?

    in soviet russia violence finds you

    Bad enough no gloves, but worker rests jar in pan of food item to pack it full, violates every known rule of safe food prep. Bacteria, snot, fly feces- you name it, it can be found on jars thus contaminates whole batch. Always bring matter to container, never container to food.

  5. Ergots says:

    From a hygiene standpoint, it doesn’t matter if they wear gloves or not, as the heat of the canning process kills any bacteria.

    • 70KokuSamurai says:

      False assumption my friend, some spores can survive the heat if nestled deep enough in the food material, that’s why gloves are mandated along with other pre- processing procedures.

  6. Fred Johnson says:

    Bet you had some anyway eh?

  7. Osip says:

    Thoroughly disgusting handling of the food. I will never eat again.

  8. critter says:

    In this day and age…… and they are filling the jars by hand and with no gloves or other protection??!!! Doesn’t matter if it’s supposed to be sterilized later, it’s not sanitary. Welcome to backwards and 80 years behind the times Russia.

      And I’m sure you’re saying that out of concern for the people that would eat this stuff, and not because you want an excuse to bash us (not that you need one).

        What’d you expect showing this mess to the civilised world? That one’d say..ok would be inacceptable in the west but since it’s in russia -that is enough of excuse…

    • jeffrey pigden says:

      Looks EXACTLY like the way my Granny canned for about 70 yrs! It helped feed her 7 kids, 22 grandkids and 5 great grand kids. Modern people are TOO concerned about germs; NO ONE LIVES FOREVER!

  9. stncld says:

    ….wait til see you the storage for empty jars! – beside, even in western country there exists practices causing bad hygene in food – go look in your pizza house!

  10. Meki says:

    Like stncld said, it is like this in every country. I worked in UK and some people dont even wash hands before working with food. What about your local pizza house? Or kebab house? :D

  11. Vic says:

    I don’t understand why are you complaining so much. Your home cooked meals aren’t far from this considering germs and all that. You do buy the ingredients from the market, supermaret, hypermarket. It’s even worst. Those have been through far more hands (without gloves) than you can imagine. And your heating treatment may be considered as less effective against germs as that in a factory. So stop being snobs.

    The difference between the East and West is the East is content with mediocrity, where the west would have fixed it.

  13. RB says:

    I wonder if ER has some pictures of the cans of pork and pepper corns the solders use to eat? They had no tin lid just about two inches of fat to seal the food. Not too long ago someone found one can and tested it at the lab. They found out under the fat the foo was still fine after all this time.
