Agri-Neo and Alpacasa Announce Partnership to Enhance Food Safety

Neo-Pure will deliver the highest food safety standards for chia and sesame seeds.

Toronto, July 11, 2022 - Agri-Neo is pleased to announce its newest partnership with Alpacasa. Alpacasa, a leading food processing company in Paraguay, will use the Neo-Pure pasteurization technology to provide high-quality ingredients and solutions that add value to its local and international customers.

“Food safety and quality are top priorities for us,” said Karl Janz, Director at Alpacasa. “Neo-Pure demonstrates our ongoing commitment to becoming a part of the solution to the challenges our communities face. Our Neo-Pure Pasteurized (NPP) chia and sesame seeds will provide our customers with safer products and peace of mind.”

Neo-Pure is the most advanced pasteurization solution for chia and sesame seeds. It delivers up to a validated 5-log reduction of pathogens using a patented blend of organic actives in a dedicated food safety system. Since it does not use steam, chemical fumigation, or irradiation, Neo-Pure Pasteurized (NPP) chia and sesame seeds maintain food integrity, meaning the natural sensory characteristics, quality, nutrition, and shelf life remain unchanged, just as nature intended.

“Agri-Neo and Alpacasa share the same goal in ensuring food safety without compromising quality for customers and consumers,” said Rob Wong, President of Agri-Neo. “This partnership will combine Alpacasa’s expertise in high-quality ingredient processing with Agri-Neo’s leadership in pasteurization for low-moisture foods. We look forward to working with Alpacasa to set new food safety standards.”

Agri-Neo will showcase the partnership with Alpacasa at the IFT (Institute of Food Technologists) First Annual Event and Expo in July 2022.
