Did you know that by spraying good bacteria in really large numbers on the surface of food, they can out-compete the bad bacteria, which means the bad bacteria can’t grow? That way, these cultures can help keep food fresh and safe for longer, helping to reduce food waste as well.

“Food waste in Australia costs the economy around 20 billion Australian dollars a year. That equates to around one in five bags of groceries that gets thrown in the rubbish bin, which makes it a significant and important matter for the Australian food industry to address. Adding those few crucial days can save food manufacturers also huge amounts of money in the distribution chain,” says Kylie Evans, country manager Australia & New Zealand.

Want to learn more about how our cultures with bioprotective effect can contribute to the fight against food waste, also in Australia? Watch this video, which has just been presented at the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s 2021 Symposium.
