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."
