S Katzman Produce
to boost food safety
Mar 23, 2011 10:29 AM
KES Science & Technology Inc announced that S Katzman Produce is now using its NASA-developed AiroCide (no ozone) food safety air sanitation technology.
Because airborne cross-contamination threatens food safety and contributes to produce recalls, use of a proven air sanitation technology will be beneficial. The chemical-free AiroCide system kills airborne mold, fungi, bacteria, and viruses, and it removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as ethylene gas. It provides added protection to enhance risk management/quality assurance/traceability programs while optimizing product shelf life.
A wholesale/distributor of produce in the New York City Terminal Market, S Katzman is a fourth-generation family business that provides a range of fruits and vegetables.
The company’s Stefanie Katzman said the AiroCide technology was chosen because the firm was searching for a technology to remove ethylene gas. “We noticed some of the people we do business with were using AiroCide. So we called them up for references, and everyone we spoke to had good things to say about their results. We then decided AiroCide was the answer to our problems.”

AiroCide technology is not a filtration system. The patented technology, integrated with photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), works in unison to destroy airborne microbes and dismantle VOCs. Clinical studies show a 99.98% kill rate for microbials and removal of VOCs. AiroCide technology is a Food and Drug Administration-listed Class II medical device.
