Ozone in the Food and Beverage Industry

lrg-food-pic.pngOzone is a proven, powerful way to effectively and quickly eliminate microorganisms, killing viruses and bacteria, including E.coli and Listeria. It can be used to control biological growth of unwanted organisms in products and equipment used in food processing industries. Ozone Solutions' industry-leading technology is particularly suited for the food industry due to its ability to disinfect microorganisms without adding chemical by-products to the food being treated, food processing water, or atmosphere in which food is stored. Ozone reverts back to oxygen, leaving no harmful chemical residuals or altering the taste of treated food.
