Queensland Ginger is harvested and processed by being freighted to where it will usually be washed, though sometimes Queensland Ginger is unwashed depending on the preference and processing style of the grower in question. It is then stored in brine. Brine is kept with the ginger to help store and preserve the ginger. This is where it will stay before it is used in whatever its post harvest process is, anything from juicing, to cookies, crackers, cakes, or even gingerbread.

Once delivered, it is washed and sorted for contaminants before being weighed and stored in brine for preservation.
