Meat & Poultry Processing

Supplying more than 100 markets globally, Australia is one of the world’s largest exporters of red meat. As such, the Australian red meat and livestock industry is subject to intensely high levels of food safety and integrity.

Chlorine dioxide, a selective oxidizer that kills bacteria of all kinds without interfering with food integrity or taste, delivers this sector gold star hygiene and biosecurity solutions.

Zychem Technologies cleverly developed range of commercial grade chlorine dioxide products have met with widespread uptake from the Meat and Poultry processing industry in Australasia.
