PDSC provides complete checks and balances, with the ability to monitor the fresh produce all through the food chain providing an audit trail for food illness outbreaks in the chain. The ozone process can be used at the retail level in each produce section of the store two of the most serious problems within the perishable food industry, shelf life extension and the reduction of pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E. coli 0157H: 07.

PDSC’s systems are unique machines that dual stream high-pressure cold water and ozonated cold water. With this technology, a technician can simultaneously clean and sanitize in a single application with considerable benefits. Energy — 100% reduction in hot water (natural gas).
