Fruit and Vegetable Processing

Fresh cut fruits and vegetables are critical foods necessary to maintain healthy diets. Their freshness, safe harvest, processing, and transit from field to the dinner table is boosted by having a chlorine-free microbial control agent to reduce pathogenic bacteria, decay and spoilage organisms. The same chemistry can be used as a sanitizer & disinfectant on hard surfaces and processing equipment to address pathogens of concern such as Staphyloccus, E.coli, Salmonella, and Listeria. The chemistry may also be used for treatment of agricultural and irrigation water systems to control sulfides, odor, slime and algae in sand filters, humidification systems, storage tanks, ponds, reservoirs, canals.
