Kibbling Process (click on bold for gallery's)
The carobs when are separated into sources of origin, then they are hand selected for and the remainder is to remove all leaves and small twigs then any larger twigs are manually removed to ensure the quality of the end product.

The Kibbling process (crushing) will then begin whereby the carob pot is cut into particular smaller pieces for the sole purpose of the extraction of the carob seed.
The process uses an air-separator to separate the smaller pieces of the carob and the seed.

The actual process is at least 20 years old however very efficient with only 1% carob in the seed content.
This is indeed a very remarkable achievement considering the age of the machinery.
