AgriForce invests in food safety technology

AgriForce Growing Systems has purchased a 14% stake in Radical Clean Solutions ("RCS"). RCS has developed and is commercializing a suite of proprietary and patent-pending chemical-free Hydroxyl devices that are proven to eliminate pathogens, mold, mildew, and VOCs in food production facilities, indoor farms, and medical, commercial, and home environments.

Hydroxyl technology produces hydroxyl radicals that break down and oxidize pollutants at a molecular level. The hydroxyl radicals then quickly revert back to oxygen and hydrogen, leaving no toxic residues. RCS technologies are powered and integrated using RCS' proprietary IOT platform that provides real-time data and analytics on device performance, utilization, and compliance.

Mauro Pennella, President of AgriFORCE Brands stated, "Investing in RCS builds on our previously acquired worldwide rights to exclusively commercialize RCS' suite of Hydroxyl devices, management systems and processes in controlled environment agriculture ("CEA") and food manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facilities, as well as a co-ownership of the pending patent for CEA. We believe that RCS' chemical-free technologies could become a critical component for helping reduce food spoilage, ensuring maximum food safety, employee health, and operational efficiency for any facility at which they are deployed. RCS' technologies are proven to eliminate foodborne pathogens like Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, as well as airborne and surface viruses like Norovirus, common colds, and the Flu (2) (3). I am especially pleased to report that our first shipments have already been delivered to our Mexico distributor, DESICO."

Roger M. Slotkin, CEO of Radical Clean Solutions, added: "We at RCS are proud to strengthen our relationship with AgriFORCE, which is already our exclusive, worldwide licensee for the marketing, sale, and distribution of our products to the CEA and food production/manufacturing industries. Unlike virtually all "air cleaning technologies" on the market today, the Radical solution does not simply filter or treat the air that passes through it. Our hydroxyl technology is dispersed throughout the environment in which it operates, thereby sanitizing all surfaces, materials, equipment, and the very air itself. It does so through a natural, chemical-free process that is 100% harmless to people, pets and plants."
