Dr Sairam developed "one stop shop" undisputed solution for Listeria control with many more advantages for "meat and poultry products and for range of cooked meat products for global market requirements.

Technological Revolution: Sophisticated Anaerobic Fermentation of Cane juice / Corn Starch hydrolysate for production of Lactate & Acetate salts using suitable micro-organism. The unique fermentation process will selectively produce combination of Lactates and Acetates and later various formulations are developed as per USFDA standards to hit targeted goals for food safety.
