Why AntiMicrobials

Food safety is ensured largely, but not exclusively, by controlling the presence and growth of pathogenic organisms in and on foods. Numerous cleaning compounds and processes have been developed to remove and destroy bacteria, viruses, and parasites from equipment and surfaces in food processing plants, this also applies to fresh produce and animal carcasses. Antimicrobial compounds are used to eliminate or limit the growth of pathogens in foods.
