Contaminated packaging is one of the primary causes of the contamination of foodstuffs with bacteria and mould. The existence of micro-organisms on packaging can often greatly reduce the shelf life of products, result in expensive product recalls and in extreme cases cause food bourne outbreaks.
Packaging disinfection solutions are deployed in the food industry in order to disinfect various types of packaging.
EXAMPLES OF THIS INCLUDE:
•Food trays, pails, foils and films.
• In pack product decontamination.
•Lids, caps and closures.
• Finished product packs.
Packaging surfaces are treated with high intensity UV-C and depending on the dosage up to 99.99%+ of micro- organisms can be destroyed.
