“Listeria scares. Food product recalls. Wanting less-processed, more wholesome, natural and organic foods. Transparency around provenance and food ingredient labelling. Today’s savvy consumer is justifiably demanding when it comes to what they put in their mouth! Natural and clearly-labelled food protection solutions are a vital part of delivering safe, delicious and nutritious food to the population.”
