addition to the requirements of food hygiene standards, reducing
postharvest food losses is a major agricultural goal. For
highly perishable commodities, such as tomatoes, squash, and
peaches, as much as 30% of the harvested crop may be lost
to postharvest diseases before they reach the consumer. Investments
made to save food after harvest are usually less costly for
the grower and the consumer and less harmful to the environment,
than efforts to increase production.
GeoSIL is registered in New Zealand
pursuant to the ACVM Act 1997 as an Agricultural Compound
for Post Harvest Fruit & Vegetable Applications
(ACVM Reg. No. P7819)
Chemicals have been widely used to reduce the
incidence of postharvest disease. Although effective, many
of these materials have been removed from the market in recent
years because of economic, environmental, or health concerns.
The environmentally attractive properties
of GeoSIL are trusted world wide to provide a non-threatening
solution to traditional high risk chemicals.

is a versatile, chlorine free, antiviral disinfectant that

is a safe, versatile, antiviral disinfectant that is suitable
for a number of poultry applications where traditional sanitisers
fail to provide the level of hygiene required in modern process
facilities. It is the ideal solution where continued use of
traditional sanitisers, such as chlorine, need to be replaced
because of on-going performance issues and non-compliance
with health standards. The persistent use of sanitisers that
permit an evolution of resistance, allow the establishment
of biofilms in watering systems, and provide poor performance
at pH & temperature extremes, mean that GeoSIL can offer
a modern intelligent solution to prevent the replication of
viruses, fungi, and mould.
EU directives now limit the amount of chlorine that can be
used in poultry processing to that allowed in potable water,
effectively banning its use in poultry processing. The reasons
behind this move are because of both taste, and the production
of carcinogenic byproducts. In the United States, chlorine
has become controversial as a food additive. Toxic byproducts
are created by chlorine in water, and the food industry is
trying to reduce the use of chlorinated water in food processing.
The American Public Health Association has a policy statement
calling for the use of alternatives to chlorine whenever possible.
It has also been found that the high levels of chlorine required
for the sterilising of carcasses can cause eye and respiratory
irritation among factory workers. Lower levels that do not
have this effect can compromise antimicrobial effectiveness.
