"Food and Drink Production Disinfection"
It has been shown that in the past 20 years vegetable and fruit consumption in the US and Canada has increased. As a result, more people are becoming ill due to chemical substances used as an antimicrobial preventative measure in food production.
Presently, there is a sanitary issue involved with the number of produce associated with harmful microorganisms that cause food-borne illnesses. These microorganisms are hard to control and are significantly increasing in numbers. Furthermore, deterioration and a notable difference in the quality of vegetables and fruits is constantly occurring in both the industrial sector and in transportation; it is estimated that 30% of crops are lost or considered not suitable for human consumption. The above mentioned issues are a result of microorganisms, their negative influence and the chemicals used to control their growth from post-harvest to consumption.
