Controlling contamination in the packhouse

15 October 2017

Good packhouse hygiene underpins the shelf life of fresh produce and reduces contamination risks that can impact food safety.  Fogging offers a quick and easy disinfection solution that uses small amounts of eloclear, a food industry biocide, to sanitise very large spaces. eloclear can be used in packhouse fogging with Ozo’s hand held elofogger. 

Making fogging a regular part of the hygiene process can help reduce the presence of spoilage organisms that can contaminate produce during packing. Ozo Innovations has worked with fresh produce packing companies to evaluate the impact of fogging.  Leaf packers reported a noticeable reduction of microbes on the walls of cold stores following a single treatment.  
eloclear can be manufactured on site with elocube system which transforms food grade salt and cold water into a cleaner and terminal disinfectant. eloclear works killing bacteria, viruses, yeast and mould.
