Antimicrobial technology for retail

In any high-traffic area, bacteria can be easily passed from person-to-person posing a risk of cross-contamination, and supermarkets provide multiple exposure pathways for bugs to spread.

Even with strict cleaning protocols, with millions of customers visiting major supermarkets each week harmful bacteria can easily survive on contact surfaces and pose a significant risk to health for vulnerable and immunosuppressed shoppers.

Biomaster is already approved for use in several major supermarkets, protecting products from harmful foodborne pathogens such as E. coli, Campylobacter, Salmonella and Listeria.

Antimicrobial technology for supermarket contact points

With regular use trolley handles, conveyor belts at checkouts and even delivery crates can act as transmission points for harmful bacteria, particularly when it’s been revealed that up to 7% of raw chicken packaging sold in supermarkets is contaminated with Campylobacter.

Although shoppers are urged to wash their hands before and after shopping, public behaviour cannot always be relied on to maintain hygiene standards.

Biomaster can be easily specified by retailers to provide antimicrobial trolley handles, checkouts and antimicrobial delivery crates to improve levels of hygiene for shoppers and staff alike, for a minimal cost.

Antimicrobial technology for reusable shopping bags

The FSA now advise that the outer packaging for raw meat, poultry and fish can be contaminated with bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella and E. coli, which can all be a source of food poisoning illnesses.

As such, there is a heightened risk that when transporting food home these bacteria could be spread from packaging to the rest of your groceries and the lining of your Bag for Life.  

The Biomaster protected Bag for Life features an antimicrobial lining, meaning the bacteria cannot survive on the surface, making your bag safe to re-use for multiple trips, regardless of how often you use it.

How Biomaster Works

 

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.

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, Salmonella and Listeria.

We can provide free-of-charge antimicrobial samples for you to test to ensure that incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into your range of products for the retail or supermarket sector is as straightforward as possible. 

All of our antimicrobial 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.
