Aloe based edible coating to improve food safety

After a successful season in the Mexican fresh produce market, Aloe Eco Park SAPI de CV launched Aloecat 1-Bio in the US and Latin American fruit and vegetable market.

Aloecat 1-Bio is an aloe based edible coating which helps growers and packers to protect fresh produce from bacteria and fungi, and to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables, improving food safety and final consumers' satisfaction, with total sustainability.

Aloecat 1-Bio contributes to safe packing in fresh produce, as established in the new Produce Safety Final Rule under Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of the United States.

Aloe is very well known for its antibacterial and antifungal protection. Aloecat 1-Bio gives a strong protection against bacteria and fungi to fresh produce, and also extends shelf life, because it creates a biofilm all over the surface of each fruit or vegetable.

Aloecat 1-Bio is totally made from a renewable resource, is 100% biodegradable, and totally sustainable. The product is offered in 20 liter plastic drum, 200 liter (55 gallon) drum and 1000 liter plastic tote.
