red meat processing for safe meat

Peracetic Acid

Red Meat Processing

Some argue that a well-prepared steak requires no accompaniment. While we think your condiment choice is up to you, we know that bacteria has no place on the plate, or anywhere in red meat’s journey from the pasture to the plate.

Red meat processing demands reliable products like peracetic acid backed with superior technical expertise – the complete package that offers a safe, economical, low-capital approach to reduce pathogenic bacteria and limit product spoilage or decay. We offer environmentally friendly red meat processing chemistries that can be applied directly to carcasses, parts, and organs. Peroxides help reduce red meat contamination by pathogenic bacteria and are approved for processing red meat from organic meat.
