Phages as an additional food safety hurdle to prevent Listeria contamination in food processing

Micreos is a pioneer and leading in the field of targeted antibacterial phage technology. As the natural enemy of bacteria, phages specifically kill foodborne pathogens like Salmonella and Listeria. Unlike antibiotics, phages are leaving the good bacteria intact. Phages are green, smart and easy to apply on food as a surface intervention via a spray or a dip. There is no effect on taste, color or smell so there is no need for product reformulation. As a processing aid phage does not require labelling.
