Reveam was honored to be a featured presenter at the National Plant Board’s 97th Annual Meeting to showcase Electronic Cold-Pasteurization™ (ECP™) technology as a sustainable solution for phytosanitary treatment of fresh produce.
Reveam showcased its innovative ECP™ technology as a sustainable alternative to Methyl Bromide for phytosanitary treatments at the National Plant Board’s 97th Annual Meeting, held this month in Little Rock, AR. The meeting included plant health regulatory experts from all (50) states, as well as representatives from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and Guam. Distinguished figures from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were also in attendance. Furthermore, the event welcomed government representatives from Canada and Mexico, fostering an atmosphere of cross-border collaboration.
An integral driving force in plant health regulations, the National Plant Board (NPB) orchestrates this annual gathering to deliberate on state and federal regulatory matters. The annual meetings organized by the NPB serve as crucial platforms for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and innovation within the realm of plant health. Through these efforts, the NPB not only safeguards the country’s agricultural production but also upholds the integrity of ecosystems and biodiversity.
“We are honored to have been selected as the sole commercial presenter at the National Plant Board’s 97th Annual Meeting. This recognition underscores Reveam’s commitment to a more sustainable and secure future for fresh produce. Our ECP™ technology is not just an alternative— it’s a sustainable solution that offers a powerful response to pest challenges while simultaneously enhancing food quality,” stated Chip Starns, Reveam Co-founder and Executive Vice President.
Electronic Cold-Pasteurization (ECP™), a USDA-approved phytosanitary 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.
