Post Harvest

Ensuring fruits and vegetables are fit for consumption once they have been harvested is essential.

With Lonza’s SABS 1853 approved Frexus® range of products - disinfectants for the use in the food industry – they aid in eliminating micro-organisms and promote overall sanitation.

Through washing produce post-harvest with an effective disinfectant, unwanted micro-organisms, such as bacteria and fungi, are controlled which can help reduce yield losses through shelf-life extension, and aid in cost-savings.

Process water used during post-harvest operations is also a source of microbiology, which decays the produce and can adversely affect human health. Lonza’s product solutions can also be used for the disinfection of surfaces and utensils that come into contact with foodstuff during processing.

Lonza is able to provide engineered equipment for various-sized applications, helping to provide continuous, accurate and reliable disinfection.
