Poultry processer, Faccenda Foods, plans to invest £1M in SonoSteam technology if the process can bring down levels of dangerous Campylobacter bacteria
Faccenda foods is one of UK´s biggest poultry processors with a turn over of more than 400£. This poultry processor plans to invest more than £1M to fight Campylobacter with the novel intervention SonoSteam. SonoSteam uses a combination of steam and ultrasound in a super fast 1.5 sec treatment. Extensive pilot scale trials significantly prove that this process reduces Campylobacter levels. The Danish Technology is ready to be tested under full slaughter conditions in the UK.
Faccenda Foods’ Technical Director, David Keeble, said: “Following an extensive series of trials earlier this year we are excited to be taking the SonoSteam technology to full scale trials at our Brackley factory. We look forward to working with SonoSteam, the FSA and our customers in the coming weeks as we install, run and validate this unique technology.”
