The control of bacterial contamination in meat processing and packaging is an important health and economic consideration in the meat industry. Currently the antibacterial/antimicrobial regimes for this market is dominated by products containing high levels of chlorine, bromine, sulphur dioxide, benzoates and nitrites. These chemicals are toxic highly reactive materials and pose both application and disposal issues for operators and the environment.

Aussan can be used for surface sanitation on all processing surfaces and equipment with no requirement for rinsing. The product is completely non toxic to humans and animals.
Aussan can be used for direct carcass washing to reduce levels of common pathogens associated with food poisoning in domestic meat processing.
Aussan is also a powerful natural antioxidant which may assist in prolonging the storage life of the meat.

SURFACES Decks, Holding Tanks, Storage Containers, Transportation Vehicles and Cold Rooms
ICE-MAKING Water used to make ice can be treated with Aussan prior to freezing. Spread an adequate quantity of flake ice over each layer of fish as it is stored. The slow melting of the ice will distribute Aussan over the fish thereby providing continuous sanitization.
GLAZING Glazing water may have Aussan added enable bacterial control to occur during defrosting.
PRAWNS Dip prawns for a minimum of 5 minutes in an Aussan/water mix. By dipping the prawns in this solution it prevents “Black Spot.” Care must be taken after this point to keep product temperature and condition stable by freezing or chilling. If black spot has already occurred, Aussan will not act as a bleaching compound and remove the black spot.
KNIVES, STEELS AND SCABBARDS Scrub in a solution of Aussan and leave immersed in the solution for a minimum of 10 minutes and overnight if possible (Aussan is non corrosive).
