OZOfresh Ozone Emitting Sachets


Ozone (O3), is an allotrope of oxygen occurring in nature as a colourless gas, is a powerful oxidizing agent with extremely effective disinfection and micro-biocidal properties being capable of disabling both surface contaminating, air-borne bacterial / fungal food spoilage and pathogenic organisms.

In addition, with particular application to fresh produce, both whole and prepared, ozone is also capable of removing ethylene from storage and headspace atmospheres, thus minimising the deleterious effects of premature senescence that this volatile plant hormone can cause.

Until now the beneficial effects of ozone were very difficult to harness and control but EMCO can now produce a simple sachet (OZOfresh) which can emit a controlled & sustained release of Ozone into a package for extended performance in MA and CA packed products.
