Project Description

The project, which will benefit from the lack of competition and the company’s long-term investment in R&D, involves the local development of bioconservatives. The company will provide in-company consulting services, to ensure the product’s full potential is realized, i.e., food safety, reduced losses from returned merchandise, enhanced brand image and improved food quality.The project involves the development of biopreservatives. Biopreservatives have proven to be highly effective in food processing, veterinary use and human health. In the food industry, biopreservatives are used for: meat (fresh or vacuum packed meat, emulsions, hamburgers, fresh and fermented cured ham and sausages, poultry and processed products); dairy products (yoghurt, cheese, shredded cheese, milk, desserts, ricotta); bakery products; canned food (prepared meals, soups, drinks, pasta, sauces, wine and spirits); fruits and vegetables (packaged raw salads, canned vegetables, juice). They are applied by spray as an ingredient or in active packaging. In the veterinary supply industry, biopreservatives are used as teat sealants for mastitis prevention and in human health, uses include control of cavities, vaginal infections and as a spermicide.
