TOMI Environmental Solutions, continues to make advancements in the Food Safety Industry.is a global decontamination and infection prevention company, providing environmental solutions for disinfection through the manufacturing, sales, and licensing of its premier Binary Ionization Technology, with its recent product Steramist, making breakthrough in the food safety industry.
Earlier this month, at the annual meeting of International Association for Food Production,TOMI presented its products, as the meeting calls attendees for food safety, academic, and governmental professionals. The Company demonstrated its SteraMist iHP cold plasma technology and how SteraMist preserves the shelf life of produce. A poster published by the USDA was presented at the meeting, which stated that “H2O2 residues on the surface of tomato fruit decreased rapidly after the treatment.” Disinfecting food while leaving no residue on food is particularly important to maintain the quality and freshness of the product, and we believe that SteraMist, which uses H2O2 solutions, can provide this important advantage. Additional studies assess the effectiveness of SteraMist iHP technology in killing commonly found pathogens on surfaces and produce. With a notable efficacy against Alternaria, a species causing 20% yield loss in annual vegetable production.
SteraMist can reduce the amount of shrinkage and, in turn, reduce labor costs with the ease-of-use and no dwell time or no wiping needed, as found out.
“SteraMist partners that conduct these studies and testing, such as the USDA and IESC, are critical to ensure that we develop the optimal solution to protect our food from pathogens and contamination. We believe that the food safety industry is following the same path as life sciences companies for TOMI in terms of thinking and implementing disinfection measures. Multiple studies, trials and requirement were developed before SteraMist was accepted in the life sciences industry,” Elissa Shane, Chief Operating Officerof TOMI, states.
