Food Safety & Sanitation


Food safety is one of the most important issues facing the food and beverage packaging industry today. Consumers expect packaging to prevent contamination and leakage while preserving flavor and keeping food fresh. DuPont looks at ways to help companies optimize their food safety and sanitation procedures during the packaging process.

Chlorine Dioxide to increase Sanitation
The food we grow and eat can be sources of disease. While most of these diseases are associated with animal protein, even fruits and vegetables can be a source of disease due to infection from contaminated water. The use of chlorine dioxide increases food safety, sanitation and disinfection and, in the case of food and produce, offers the added benefit of not leaving residue.
