Ozone is able to extend the shelf-life of food by reducing the surface microbial load and especially by blocking the formation of ethylene, a hormone considered responsible for ripening.
Moreover, the treatment of the air with ozone for the preservation of food prevents the transfer of odors from packaging materials to foodstuffs and eliminates bacteria contamination.
The benefits of the ozonizing systems made by Protea are:
1) Increase of the shelf-life of products;
2) Reduction of waste and wastefulness;
3) Elimination of odors;
4) Improvement of the quality of products;
5) Reduction of health risks.
