The pictures illustrate the ingredients that go into the factory made fish pie and the various steps in its production.
The pie contains salmon, peas, sauce and potatoes in a microwaveable container and there are 10 stages in its manufacturing, from delivery to dispatch. One of the ingredients, potato, goes through its own six-stage preparation process before it can be added to the pie.
Potatoes are the first ingredient to be prepared on the production line. They are delivered to the factory up to a month before the process begins. First of all, they are cleaned, peeled and sliced. Potatoes peelings are thrown away and the sliced potatoes are boiled, then chilled and stored.
In the mean time, fresh salmon arrives and then lemon juice and salt is added to fresh salmon. Then, it is cooked in a steam oven, within 12 hours of delivery. Next, factory workers remove and dispose of the skin and bones, and the fish is inspected. Following inspection, the preprepared peas, sauce and potatoes are added. The resulting fish pies are wrapped, frozen and then stored or dispatched.
