Food Chain Safety forms alliance with AmeriQual Group

Food Chain Safety (FCS), developer of continuous, microwave based advanced food processing systems has formally entered into a strategic alliance with AmeriQual Group to advance both the commercialization of Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization (MATS)  technology and the markets for the advanced food offerings the system delivers.

Kevin Petersen, Chairman of FCS, stated, “This is an exciting stage in the nearly 10 year development life of MATS and represents the successful crossing of a major risk-reduction event in the overall commercialization program.  FCS and the microwave consortium have much more to do but concluding this agreement is the catalyst for the acceleration of the remainder of the program.”

This agreement is recognition of the role both companies have in advancing the technology.  “We are pleased that we will be able to directly engage in the initial installation of MATS commercial equipment.  AmeriQual has a solid track record of fielding leading edge food processing technology.  We recognize the tremendous market potential of MATS and are confident our strategic alliance with FCS will insure rapid market acceptance of the finished food items,” stated Tim Brauer, President & CFO of AmeriQual Group.

Glenn Emory, COO of FCS, added, “MATS serves as a shining star among academia/industry/government development initiatives.  The technology is patented, FDA approved, and, with finalization of the program for which this strategic alliance is intended, is prepared for wide market acceptance.  MATS represents the first disruptive development for shelf-stable, sterilized foods since the time of Napoleon.”

In closing, Rob Wilson, CEO of FCS, noted, “I have been heavily engaged in the microwave technology field for nearly 20 years.  The ability to effectively sterilize complex food systems in an operationally and commercially viable manner has been a goal many have attempted but only the microwave consortium could attain.  It is thrilling to now be at a point to bring the result to the marketplace through the efforts of FCS.”

Food Chain Safety is the exclusive provider of latest generation, FDA approved, advanced food sterilization process.  The company’s proprietary microwave based systems are used for food sterilization and pasteurization.  FCS is actively engaged with academia, research organizations and industry members to develop alternate uses of technology to provide safer, environmentally preferred, solutions in the Life Sciences field.
