Clēan Verification Benefits the Entire Food Supply Chain
Post-harvest washing, the traditional and current popular method of cleaning produce, was once considered decontamination but is now understood to be a high-risk cross-contamination point. Clēan Verification is a decontamination treatment and alternative to traditional post-harvest washing.
Fresh produce is a considerable source of foodborne illness outbreaks, such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and human parasites, among others. While on-farm good agriculture practices (GAP) largely contribute to preventing such pathogens from entering the fresh produce chain, these practices simply cannot be relied on due to the nature of farming and food processing.
There is a clear need for interventions that can remove field-acquired contaminations at every step in the food supply chain, from grower to retailer. Clēan Verification fills that need.
