How does eWater stack up?

A recent listeria outbreak affecting Australia’s rockmelon industry has called into question the practices used to disinfect and sanitise our fresh produce. Find out how eWater stacks up and compares against the typical go to chemicals for cleaning and sanitising in the market.

eWater: A solution to the listeria outbreak

A recent outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes (listeria), connected to rockmelon originating from a farm in NSW, has shown that there is a need for more effective treatment of bacteria on fruit and vegetables.

Listeriosis is of grave concern to the community and can be fatal, particularly to the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

Electrolysed water has been demonstrated to be not only an effective sanitiser, particularly in regards to listeria, but its efficacy over other commercial sanitisers. eWater Systems has published a special report on the matter.
