Plastic Pallet Provider to Disinfect with Pure
Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

SAN DIEGO -- iGPS Logistics, a provider of plastic pallets to the food service industry, has signed an agreement with Pure Bioscience, Inc. to use its non-toxic, silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial disinfectant at its pallet pooling centers.

The use of plastic pallets continues to expand in the food industry, and they are increasingly required by processors and retailers. Pallet sanitization is becoming a critical component of any food safety plan to prevent cross contamination.

EPA-registered Pure Hard Surface will be mist-spray applied to the surfaces of plastic pallets inside a trailer to quickly eliminate microorganisms, preventing cross contamination. Test results demonstrated rapid efficacy (consistently over 96 percent reduction in bacteria counts), coupled with a highly favorable safety profile, said the manufacturer.

“The testing results from this new process on our plastic pallets are truly extraordinary,” said Jeff Liebesman, CEO of iGPS Logistics. “Through our partnership, we can now offer customers a level of hygiene and peace of mind far beyond all industry standards or current capabilities. We look forward to a blossoming partnership with Pure Bioscience.”

The newly developed Pure pallet sanitization solution helps food transportation operations to comply with the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirement that transport equipment be sanitized to prevent food contamination.

This initial sale supports start-up operations in five of 15 iGPS pallet pooling centers. PURE expects follow-on orders, as well as rollout to the balance of the iGPS system, in the coming months.

Hank Lambert, CEO of Pure Bioscience, said, “Our agreement to provide iGPS with our new food transport sanitization solution marks PURE’s entry into a new $50M-plus U.S. food transportation sanitization market. “iGPS is a blue-chip customer and we are proud to be partnered with an industry leader, clearly dedicated to innovative, world-class supply chain and food safety solutions.”

According to the company, the solution quickly kills germs including Listeria, Salmonella and E. coli. Because it is quick to apply and requires no rinsing it reduces downtime and offers 24-hour residual protection.
