Amalfi Ingredients LLC of Deer Park, New York, USA, has been absorbed into a new parent holding company, FoodSafe Technologies LLC. The new structure highlights the growth in the food safety and pathogen protection sectors which match the company's overall long-term strategy.
"We are very excited to open this new chapter for our company," said FoodSafe Technologies President Frank Monteleone. "While the core historic roots for Amalfi Ingredients may have been food protection through antioxidants, our key direction and continued growth is in pathogen prevention and control. This is especially true in Salmonella and E. coli elimination, where our TopShieldR Plus and Meat DefendR products have proven to be leadership products in these areas."
FoodSafe Technologies LLC will also be located in Deer Park, New York, USA. FoodSafe Technologies is in the midst of a five-year strategic organic growth plan, which will include people and facility expansion.
"Amalfi Ingredients will be a division of FoodSafe, and the EXTEND-OX antioxidant and stability products will continue to be a part of our product portfolio. This change is necessitated by the organic growth we are seeing in food protection in all key markets, driven by our TopShieldR Plus and Meat DefendR products, and we are excited to give this part of our business, and the customers we serve in food protection, a greater focus."
The new US food safety legislation will also affect regulation of petfood
Safe, nutritious, tasty petfood requires careful handling and processing of raw meat ingredients
Processors should carefully develop, validate and implement an effective kill step to support production of pathogen-free petfoods
Committees discussed key proposals such as a possible shift in the oversight of animal feeds
The mid-year meeting addressed several regulatory matters affecting petfoods
The intent was to educate regulators and industry about the Model Pet Food Regulations
Now is the time for packagers, producers, marketers and manufacturers to capitalize on the traveling with pets trend
While petfood shoppers continue to show strong brand loyalty, pet products have not been immune to the store brand swing
As an industry, are we missing a huge opportunity to take advantage of another aspect of the human-pet bond?
