Ozone in the Fresh Produce Production

Ozone Solutions has been providing custom disinfecting systems for industrial and commercial use for over 20 years. Utilizing ozone technologies in your distribution facility will eliminate foodborne pathogens like salmonella, E. coli, listeria, and other contaminants more quickly and effectively than chemical treatments. Most importantly, it’s environmentally friendly. Ozone is organic! No more monthly chemical purchases, shipping, delays, storing, and the liability of spillage and employee safety. Using ozonated water or gas disinfects wherever applied.
