Reveam joined the global conversation on sustainable plant health solutions at the 46th North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO) Annual Meeting in Mérida, Mexico
(Merida, Mexico) – The recently concluded 46th North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO) Annual Meeting in Mérida, Mexico, proved to be a well-orchestrated gathering of plant health experts and stakeholders. Chip Starns, Co-Founder/Executive Vice President, and Michael Young, Director of Marketing from Reveam, attended the event, gaining valuable insights into the latest advancements and collaborative efforts in plant protection. Reveam thanks the NAPPO Secretariat for extending an invitation to the event.
The North American Plant Protection Organization is the phytosanitary standard-setting organization for North America, recognized in the original North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and in the recently ratified United States, Mexico and Canada Free Trade Agreement (USMCA). NAPPO was created in 1976 as a regional organization in accordance to Article IX of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).
NAPPO provides a forum for public and private sectors in Canada, the United States and Mexico to collaborate in the regional protection of plant resources and the environment while facilitating safe trade. Plant protection and trade facilitation are achieved through the development and implementation of science-based standards and related plant protection activities directed toward preventing the introduction and spread of regulated plant pests.
The 46th NAPPO Annual Meeting, which occurred December 4-7, 2023, underscored the significance of collaboration in addressing plant health challenges. The event provided a platform for knowledge exchange, paving the way for future collaborations that contribute to the evolution of phytosanitary practices. Reveam’s engagement with leading plant health experts and regulatory authorities reflects a shared commitment to advancing sustainable solutions.
As we reflect on the NAPPO Annual Meeting, Reveam is excited about the journey ahead. We remain committed to developing and promoting sustainable, effective phytosanitary practices that ensure the safety and quality of our agricultural produce.
Congratulations to NAPPO for orchestrating a remarkable event that brought together leading minds in plant health, including representation from North American departments of agriculture at the national and state levels, border protection units, industry executives and many others. These efforts showcase the commitment of the organizers to facilitate meaningful dialogue in the plant health community. Reveam commends the NAPPO organizers for creating an environment conducive to meaningful knowledge exchange during the event.
Reveam’s Electronic Cold-Pasteurization® (ECP®) technology offers a promising, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly solution for ensuring the safety, quality, and extended shelf life of fresh produce. It aligns with the growing demand for eco-friendly alternatives in the agriculture and food processing industries. This approach stands in contrast to traditional food treatment processes that may involve harsh and toxic chemicals like Methyl Bromide, known for its carcinogenic and ozone-depleting properties.
ECP® technology, approved by USDA, offers an efficient, chemical-free, and heat-free phytosanitary treatment solution for fresh produce, ensuring the elimination of pests and pathogens while extending shelf life.
