I'm pretty new to the world of organic and I'm at a bit of a loss.
We are planning to open up a new liquid sugar line. The process is, in brief, to melt finished RTE sugar into water and ship it. We only have 1 melting tank, a couple storage tanks, and one set of sealed pipework leading to a discharge point where the trucks are loaded.
We currently use RTE non-organic certified cane sugar (non-GMO project verified). My boss is asking about us purchasing organic certified RTE cane sugar. He then went further and asked about using beet sugar on occasion, which IS genetically modified and thus not organic or non-GMO certified.
I don't see how we can manage that with all the shared equipment. Especially in the closed pipework. I'm not sure if there's anything we can 'flush through' the line that would be able to be validated on all the turns and not ruin the organic status. But maybe I'm just 'over thinking' how hard it is to remove all the residue from the last batch?
Thoughts, insights, and direction are appreciated!
