Reveam attended the Center for Produce Safety’s (CPS) 14th annual Research Symposium on June 20-21 in Atlanta, Georgia. This event brings together industry professionals from government agencies, the food supply chain, and academia to discuss the latest advancements in produce safety. The CPS Research Symposium is a leading event for the industry that propels support in the fresh produce industry. Reveam is always interested in learning how to further
assist in fueling change in food safety.
“The Center for Produce Safety plays a significant role in educating the produce industry on food safety, industry needs, and research priorities. The annual CPS Research Symposium is a great benefit to our industry. The research presented helps to target issues in our community and identify the challenges that food scientists face,” said Chip Starns, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President at Reveam. “Reveam is honored to attend events, like the CPS Research Symposium, to learn more about the issues in our industry and speak to others about our electron beam ECP™ technology that is a clean, sustainable treatment solution.”
Electronic Cold-Pasteurization (ECP™), a USDA/FDA approved treatment option, is a chemical-free, heat-free treatment that eliminates harmful pests and pathogens while extending shelf-life at the peak of freshness and pinnacle of safety. ECP™ showers fresh produce with a controlled beam of electrons that eliminates pests like fruit flies, destroys pathogens like Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella and kills bacteria and molds that spoil food.
This patented electron beam system also significantly extends the shelf life of produce without harming taste, color, odor, texture, or the environment and is recognized by leading industry experts as the only truly effective and environmentally safe food treatment method available today. This stands in sharp contrast to some of the most widespread traditional food treatment processes which involve the use of harsh and toxic chemicals like Methyl Bromide, a known carcinogen and ozone-depleting substance.
