Vegetables are an integral part of the daily diet. Vegetables can be cooked on their own, or combined with meat to create dishes, with fruit to create salads and with pasta to create various types of pasta. Vegetables are widely used, nutritious and delicious, but the pre-processing of vegetables harvested from the land not only has yellow leaves, but also a lot of soil, which inevitably has to be washed several times before processing, which has put many people off. The food processing industry sees a business opportunity in this, with large-scale cleaning and processing lines that can make it possible for thousands of households to buy clean vegetables that can be processed directly. The following is an example of leafy vegetables cabbage, to share vegetable cleaning and packaging line equipment.
