Purac's focus on natural anti-microbials brings new opportunities to combat E.coli

Escherichia coli (E.coli) is a well-known pathogen, typically present in minimally-processed foods, such as fresh meat and vegetables. In recent years, several incidents involving E. coli outbreaks have occurred, encouraging the food industry to increase their food safety measures even further.

"It is our mission to develop solutions to tackle shelf life and food safety challenges in the food industry. Our PURAC�portfolio is effective against E.coli when decontaminating food products, such as vegetables and fresh meat. These natural anti-microbials have proven themselves in industry, as well as in scientific articles. The results consistently show a significant kill of E.coli," said Bert de Vegt, Vice President Food at Purac.

Purac has 80 years of ingredient expertise and food processing know-how and assists global, food-producing companies in tackling food safety issues. Next to the existing portfolio of food safety solution for E.coli Purac is developing the next generation of food safety solutions in order to meet the future needs of the food industry.
