Erze Ambalaj, the largest producer of expanding foam packaging for food in Turkey, together with Parx Plastics has developed antimicrobial packaging that significantly reduces the growth of Salmonella, Listeria, E.Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus in food packaging.
The laboratory results are an antibacterial surface, measured according to ISO 22196 by the Independent University of Ferrara in Italy, of 92,5% against Listeria, 96% against Salmonella, and up to 96,5% against Staphylococcus Aureus.
This means this improved food packaging has scientifically-proven, 93-97% less bacteria on the surface of the material after 24 hours compared to normal food packaging.
By reducing the presence of bacteria after the manufacturing of the packaging material, during the transport of the packaging material, during packaging of the food and during the shelf life period of the product, the right conditions have been created to prevent contamination, and to provide the best possible shelf life for food products.
The Parx technology does not use biocides and the trace element used is compliant to the European regulations for plastics that come into contact of food.
