bacteriophage: reducing bacterial spoilage naturally


APS Biocontrol Ltd. (APS) develops biocontrol solutions for the management of bacterial diseases and other microbial contaminants in agriculture and food processing, where concerns regarding the use of synthetic chemicals have resulted in a programme of withdrawals that will have a dramatic impact on the ability of (a) growers to achieve commercial yields and quality and (b) suppliers to ensure the quality of post-harvest packed produce. APS’ patented Biolyse technology (based on naturally-occurring antimicrobials; bacteriophage) provides safe, effective and environmentally-sustainable replacements.
