(Oklahoma City, OK) – Reveam attended the 2022 National Plant Board (NPB) Southern Division Annual Meeting to learn about issues facing members and their states regarding plant health in the food sector and beyond. This was the first in-person meeting in three years and provided a breadth of knowledge across several topics including plant and commodity inspections and mitigation strategies in the fresh produce sector. The meeting included state and federal regulatory plant health experts along with officials from USDA, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and leading agricultural universities and colleges from across the south. The fourteen member states featured key updates and insights from their state plant regulatory officials.

“The NPB plays a vital role in ensuring the safety and quality of our food supply through safeguarding both imports/exports and domestic production from invasive pests and plant pathogens. The annual working session amongst these state experts and affiliate agencies is a great benefit to the communities they serve and we were honored to speak and introduce our electron beam ECP™ technology as a clean, sustainable treatment solution.” says Chip Starns, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President at Reveam.

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.

“Existing chemical treatment methods have a detrimental impact to not only the quality of our food, but also result in negative effects to the environment. We are excited about the future of ECP™ technology as a viable alternative to issues facing the fresh food sector today,” says Starns.
