Biomaster

Addmaster offers a solution to contaminated packaging The FSA now advises that packaging for raw meat, poultry and fish can harbour harmful bacteria which can pose a risk of food poisoning.

Biomaster antimicrobial technology inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi, mould and yeast to reduce the bacterial load and risk of spread.

This technology is increasingly inexpensive to specify and can be incorporated into existing production processes with ease.

Antimicrobial technology for packaging

Demand for antimicrobial packaging is growing and there are expectations that the global market will be worth over $10bn by 2021.

Reducing food waste and inhibiting the growth of bacteria on outer packaging are both main drivers for this growth and supermarkets and brand owners are being urged to do more to help customers make more hygienic choices.

Biomaster antimicrobial technology has already been proven to be a ready-made solution for reducing the risk of bacterial cross-contamination in food preparation and storage environments, as well as for packaging.

Antimicrobial packaging for raw meat and poultry packaging

Studies from the FSA have found that up to 7% of raw chicken packaging in UK supermarkets show traces of Campylobacter, the equivalent of around 9 million packets.

Biomaster inhibits the growth of bacteria such as Campylobacter, E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria as well as moulds and yeast on the outer packaging of fresh meat and poultry packaging, including films, lidded film packs and trays.

Incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into the external packaging results in the growth of common food poisoning bacteria being impeded, reducing the risk of bacterial transmission from the outer packaging at the point of sale.

Antimicrobial dispensers for safer food preparation

Preparing food hygienically can be a crucial way of reducing your risk of catching an unpleasant food poisoning illness as bacteria can be transferred easily around the kitchen from chopping boards, utensils and even contaminated packaging.

Biomaster has been implemented into the outer layer of a range of cling film, baking foil and parchment paper dispensers to help reduce the risk of foodbourne pathogens being spread as you prepare food.

The application has become so successful that leading supermarket chain Asda now stocks the Biomaster protected dispensers for their own-brand product line.

Biomaster can be easily implemented into various paper and board materials during the production process, providing antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product. 

How Biomaster Works

Biomaster additives works to inhibit the growth of active bacteria

 

Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process and is available in masterbatch, liquid or powder formulations for plastics, textiles, paper and coatings as well as flexible film packaging and materials such as PET, PE and PP.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the active antimicrobial agent prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, inhibiting any further growth.

The controlled release of the active ingredient provides powerful, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product.

Independent testing and free of charge samples

Highly effective at low addition rates, Biomaster has been tested in hundreds of applications to provide up to 99.99% reduction against harmful bacteria including E. coli, Campylobacter, Listeria and Salmonella.

We can provide free-of-charge antimicrobial samples for you to test to ensure that incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into your range of flexible film packaging, trays, lids or other packaging is as straightforward as possible. 

All of our antimicrobial packaging solutions are independently tested at a leading laboratory to ISO 22196 to ensure of a high quality efficacy against the microbes your product and end application requires.
