Company

Business description: With more than 300 customers in 22 countries, Purfresh is a leader in clean solutions for food and water. Its chemical-free, ozone-based family of products has been approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA to kill deadly, food-borne pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella, while remaining 100 percent organic; its water solutions use the safest and most natural purification and disinfection agent for both bottled water and pharmaceutical applications. Purfresh’s patented technologies preserve and protect the world’s food and water supply throughout the pre-harvest and post-harvest packaging, transport and cold storage processes. Its cutting-edge, thin-film sunshield, made from harmless calcium carbonate crystals, reduces sunburn damage and product losses for growers, resulting in better quality product and increased returns. Industry leaders such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Sunkist, Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, Safeway, Sun Pacific, Orchard View Farms, Paramount Farms, Wilson Batiz, and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals rely on Purfresh for product purity
