Food and "Electron Beam" Processing

Food irradiation can prevent countless infections by destroying the pathogens that cause the illness. Irradiation is not a panacea, but it would be substantially beneficial in the efforts to eliminate food-borne illness.

With all the endorsements and proof on the safety of food irradiation, it is only a matter of time before more electron beam irradiation facilities are built in response to the need for improved food safety. When that time comes, IOTRON will be able to offer food irradiation or build strategic facilities dedicated to that use.

Iotron operates one of the most advanced facilities of its type in the world. With the combination of leading edge technology and management experience, Iotron is internationally recognized as a leader in electron beam processing.
