RF Biocidics, which manufactures equipment that uses specialized radio frequency technology to safely eliminate harmful contaminants from foods, is excited to sponsor the annual World Ag Expo (www.worldagexpo.com) being held this month in Tulare, California.

An estimated 100,000 participants from 70 countries are expected to attend this year’s World Ag Expo, the largest annual agricultural show of its kind with more than 1,500 exhibitors displaying agricultural technology and equipment. RF Biocidics will be showcasing its food safety systems in Pavilion D of the International Agri-Center at Booth #4709.

RF Biocidics’ APEX and SENTINEL food systems employ volumetric heating to remove pests and bacteria using radio frequency waves, providing an environmentally friendly solution that is suitable for both conventionally and organically grown products. The APEX system specializes in dry commodities such as seeds and nuts, including walnuts and almonds. The SENTINEL is specifically designed for the disinfection and disinfestation of high-moisture commodities such as raisins, plums, prunes, dried cherries or dried apricots. RF Biocidics’ patented food safety process was developed at the University of California, Davis.

Serving clientele across the globe, from the U.S. and Europe to the Middle East, South America, Mexico and Australia, RF Biocidics seeks to change the way the food industry looks at food safety and the natural environment. The company brings together experts in microbiology, engineering, food safety and mathematics to help food companies navigate food safety measures amidst growing consumer demand for organic and chemical-free foods that maintain high-quality taste and texture and a tightening regulatory environment.

“RF Biocidics’ participation in World Ag Expo showcases the company’s commitment to providing food safety solutions to leading food providers worldwide,” says Craig Powell, Chief Executive Officer of RF Biocidics. “We are proud to provide a much-needed, non-chemical solution to today’s food industry.”
