Neo-Pure Organic Pasteurization will ensure the food safety and quality of Henan Sunny's spices and dehydrated vegetable products, starting with dehydrated garlic.
TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Agri-Neo, a leader in food safety for low-moisture foods, is pleased to announce its partnership with Henan Sunny Foodstuff, a globally recognized manufacturer and exporter of spices and dehydrated vegetables in China. Henan Sunny will implement the Neo-Pure Organic Pasteurization technology in its Henan facility in China to deliver the highest food safety and quality standards to its customers worldwide, starting with dehydrated garlic products.
"At Henan Sunny, our mission is to produce top-quality products to meet the growing needs of our customers," said Johnny Li, CEO of Henan Sunny Foodstuff. "We never stop improving production processes and quality control systems. Neo-Pure demonstrates our commitment to food safety by using the most advanced technology to satisfy our customers in more than 70 countries. We will start offering Neo-Pure Pasteurized (NPP) dehydrated garlic products in Q1 of 2024 and expand its use into other dehydrated vegetables throughout the year."
The Neo-Pure Organic Pasteurization process enables Henan Sunny to achieve a 99.999% (5-log) reduction of pathogens such as Salmonella and E. coli without compromising food quality. It works by misting a patented blend of organic actives onto food in a continuous flow to inactivate pathogens and reduce total plate count. Since Neo-Pure does not rely on heat, steam, chemical fumigation, or irradiation, Neo-Pure Pasteurized (NPP) foods maintain food integrity, meaning the natural sensory quality, nutrition, and shelf life remain unchanged, just as nature intended.
"We couldn't be more excited to partner with Henan Sunny," said Robert Wong, President of Agri-Neo. "Just like dehydrated onions, dehydrated garlic is a sensitive ingredient that does not work well with heat-based methods such as steam and infrared. The Neo-Pure Organic Pasteurization process maintains the vital organoleptic properties of garlic such as color and flavor, while delivering a validated kill step to meet industry requirements. Furthermore, products that go through the Neo-Pure process can be sold anywhere in the world, unlike methods like irradiation that are commercially restricted for sale in many countries. We believe this collaboration with Henan Sunny will provide them with a significant advantage in the market by strengthening the food safety and quality of their product portfolio."
Henan Sunny will exhibit at the Anuga Trade Fair in Germany in October (Hall 1.2, Stand K030).
The Agri-Neo mission is to help safely feed the world by creating technology that sets new food safety standards. Neo-Pure™, developed by Agri-Neo, eliminates harmful pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria while maintaining the nutrition and quality that flourishes naturally in food. Agri-Neo has a dedicated team of food scientists, researchers, and engineers to launch more food safety solutions for many high-risk food groups in the future.
