BactoAlarm® is a revolution in food labeling solutions
BactoAlarm® is an invention within the food, chemical-pharmaceuticals and cosmetic fields. Specifically, it represents a label or line that is placed on the inner side of the modified atmosphere food packaging, to monitor the presence and development of microorganisms by changing the initial color from green to black, with no need in direct contact with the food.
Why it was created?
- To contribute in Global food safety practices.
- To ensure consumers in what they eat is safe.
- 30-50% of food produce is wasted which is equivalent to $750 bil.
- Only in the USA 48 million People get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases. (CDC)
- Simply because we know how to make it!
