FACT or FICTION: Ozone kills Vibrio

Does ozone kill Vibrio?

Yes, at defined ozone concentrations and contact time. 

If you’re processing peeled shrimp or shucked oysters, ozone can help defend against Vibrio (and Listeria).  

Additional research needs to be conducted on un-shucked oysters and shrimp, as well as crab and lobster in the shell. 

TriStrata Group is seeking partners to conduct research with these products, as well as additional applications in the Seafood Market.  

If you’re interested in these opportunities, please stop by the TriStata Group booth at the Seafood Expo and visit with Mark Denis, Seafood Application Specialist or connect with us <here>

All ozone providers are not the same.

The services and support provided vary greatly and the disparity can mean the difference between outcome success and failure.

Several things you should ask any ozone provider you are considering:

1. Do you have service techs in my area to maintain and service the ozone generating system?

TriStrata has the largest nationwide field service team to keep your ozone equipment maintained properly and repairs made quickly.

2. Does your company focus solely on the food Industry?

Successful implementation of ozone requires an in-depth knowledge of food safety, processing procedures, HACCP, and ozone’s capabilities. TriStrata focuses solely on the food industry.

3. Do you have a monitoring and data logging system? Does your customer service team monitor it for irregularities?

TriStrata provides remote monitoring & access, data logging, AND dedicated system analysts that actively work to rectify alarms remotely.

Consider ozone as an additional food safety hurdle in your food safety microbial intervention strategy for several reasons:

1.     Reduce antimicrobial usage.  Ozone can maintain and often reduce the incidence of microorganisms while decreasing the usage and costs of other microbial interventions. 

2.     Reduce safety risks.  Ozone will reduce the hazards associated with your team handling hazardous chemicals.

3.     Reduce complexity & footprint.  Ozone is generated on-site.  No need for additional orders, storage and waiting on delivery.

4.     Reduce your environmental impact.  Ozone starts and ends as oxygen.  We can help you achieve clean labeling and sustainability goals.
