OKSTATE Ag & Natural Resources Impacts: Listeria Research


Well Uniterm as a company has grown
directly as a result of the Food and Agricultural Product Center. If you think
about 15 years ago we were at three million dollars today we’re over 30
million dollars in sales and a lot of that business that we’ve developed has come from patented processes that the center has helped us develop. More recently
we’ve been able to develop a process where we pasteurize the onions. We do it
by burning the outer skin then shoot it completely off it and then we’re able to
prove that the bacteria that was on the surface is dead. Then we wash the onion
and we have a completely white onion that you can’t tell was there were
subjectively a high fire. Without the Food and Agricultural Product
Center we simply couldn’t develop the food safety standards or processes that
we’re selling across the world but here instead what we have as a center its
leading the world in global food safety technology.
