HumiTex, a Cypress-based cold storage conditioning and food safety company, introduced its new HumiTex filtration program today designed to reduce the harmful effects of temperature and humidity, including harmful Ethylene gas and Pectin acids.
“We have situations in some locations where the issue of food safety is controllable within their coolers, but they are not controlling it,” Katona said.
From simply opening and closing cooler doors throughout the day to exposing walk-in refrigerators to room temperatures during food delivery, relative humidity increases fostering a breeding ground for food-borne illness to develop inside.
“Many of these locations do not even have calibrated thermometers,”
“The end result is patrons can get sick, operational expenses rise and shelf life of food expires faster.”
HumiTex’s filtration program features panels developed with Sorbite, a natural mineral mined only in the Mohave Desert; this “green,” environmentally-
The filters, which need no electricity, also reduce trim loss and shrinkage and decrease energy consumption, Katona said.
“This self-financing program can even extend the shelf life of perishable food by as much as 50 percent,” he said. “Every food service manager can see a benefit from the reduction of costs.”
According to one kitchen manager in Hempstead, the HumiTex filtration program helped determine what it was costing their foodservice operation each year by not controlling humidity.
“We were spending an average of $4800 per year extra by not controlling the humidity in the cooler,” she said. “The inside air is colder, the ice on the pipes are gone and there is no more condensation or moisture on our racks.”
With no long-term contracts and no additional out of pocket expenses, Katona said the HumiTex filtration system offers a great opportunity for every food service manager or owner.
HumiTex also announced a free, two-week trial of the HumiTex filtration system for restaurants, school districts, assisted living facilities and other food service vendors.
