Courchesne Larose implements
AiroCide food safety technology
May 19, 2011 7:00 AM
KES Science & Technology Inc announced that Courchesne Larose Ltd will be using the NASA-developed non-chemical (no-ozone) AiroCide food safety air sanitation technology in its new building and expansion project opening later in 2011.
Because airborne cross-contamination poses a potential threat to food safety, AiroCide provides a way of controlling airborne mold, fungi, bacteria, unpleasant odors, allergens, and viruses, as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as ethylene gas. AiroCide will complement a quality assurance program while maximizing shelf life.
The patented AiroCide technology is a US Food and Drug Administration-listed Class II medical device and Canadian Food Inspection Agency-approved. AiroCide is energy-efficient, as it was originally designed for the NASA space station program to successfully conduct astroculture experiments that required air free of mold spores and ethylene gas.
Courchesne Larose Ltd is a family business that constitutes the flagship of the Courchesne Larose Group, headquartered in Montréal, Québec, Canada. It offers suppliers a network for distribution of fresh fruits and vegetables in eastern Canada. Its suppliers operate around the world, and its clients are all over Canada and the United States.

AiroCide is manufactured and distributed by Atlanta GA-based KES Science and Technology. Visit www.kesair.com for more information.
