Tasker's expands use of its anti-pathogen technology to poultry processing

US - US-based Tasker Capital, which is attempting to expand its reach into the food market, will test its anti-pathogen pHarlo technology at a commercial poultry processor after it received authorisation this week to do so from the US's Department of Agriculture (USDA).

"Tasker's pHarlo technology is a totally new and unique process that could revolutionise the food processing industry," the company said. " As such, the USDA is meticulously examining its potential to validate benefits in food safety."

The technology is already approved for use during the processing of seafood and eggs. Tasker also said yesterday it expects to complete the acquisition of pHarlo Citrus Technology, Indian River Labs and Coast to Coast over the next few weeks.

" Achieving USDA approval for the use of pHarlo in the scalde of poultry processing is a major step for Tasker in its entry in the food processing industry," the company said.

Coast to Coast Laboratories is a developer and marketer of the pHarlo technology as various products. Coast to Coast's Unifresh foodbath is used as a footbath concentrate to control bacteria and fungus that invade the hooves of cows and cattle.
