The processing plant in Szeged has made contracts with more than 200 farms producing paprika to ensure that it is supplied. The paprika is first cut into slices and then loses its humidity in drying machines where it is processed for three hours. The milled paprika of Szeged is a product in great demand in Hungary, and abroad. Fifty per cent of the plant’s output is annually exported. During its peak season the plant ships daily 60,000 1/4kg bags a day for its domestic market alone.
