Solutions for seafood safety and shelf life

Long production chains in today's seafood industry pose significant challenges for producers in their efforts to deliver products that will arrive on consumers' tables safe, fresh, and delicious. 

With more than 85 years of preservation and food safety expertise, Corbion can help you overcome hurdles and meet those challenges successfully.

 

Overcoming key challenges

When you partner with Corbion, our experts will provide the optimal solution to help you:

  • Control pathogens to ensure food safety.

  • Inhibit the growth of spoilage microorganisms.

  • Replace synthetic preservative ingredients.

  • Reduce off-odors in your seafood products.

Popular seafood products can vary widely from region to region, not only in raw materials, but in the way they are processed and packaged as well. Seafood products are, by nature, susceptible to spoilage from a wide range of bacteria, including Brochothrix, various lactic acid bacteria (LAB), and spore-formers of the Bacillus species. Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, Clostridium, and other human pathogens may also pose potential threats to consumers' health and safety.

Listeria in particular continues to be a major challenge for the industry, and is especially prevalent in smoked fish. Corbion has a proven track record and reputation for working with the industry to prevent Listeria outbreaks using a versatile family of seafood safety solutions and our advanced predictive modeling platform. The Corbion Listeria Control Model helps you quickly identify the optimal safety and shelf life solution, saving you time and money in bringing new products and formulations to market.
