Recently the FSA issued guidance to clarify the steps that food businesses need to take in order to control the risk of contamination from E.Coli.
Also a survey conducted by Trading Standards has revealed that pathogenic bacteria such as Campylobacter and Salmonella are present inside and outside of fresh chicken packaging found within butchers, grocers and supermarkets.
Biomaster Antimicrobial Technology is a proven, readymade solution for controlling bacterial cross-contamination in food preparation and storage environments.
Biomaster is a range of silver based, inorganic additives that are used safely in films and packaging to safely prevent the growth of bacteria and reduce the risk of cross contamination. The Biomaster additives can be incorporated into any part of the packaging by addition into the polymer during manufacture or via printed lacquers after production.
Biomaster additives are food contact approved, cost effective and suitable for all polymer film structures. They have also been independently tested to reduce the levels of bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella, Listeria and E.Coli on films by up to 99.99%.
*Please note that Addmaster was acquired by the Polygiene Group AB in January 2021, so all news articles prior to that date will still be branded as Addmaster.
