BURNABY, British Columbia - March 15, 2019 - PRLog -- West Coast Wild Foods Ltd. is pleased to announce the complete installation and production of the first organic germ, parasite reduction and drying chamber in Canada. This germ reduction chamber solved the industry void in an organic, non-destructive way of reducing microbials in organic food, herbs and spices. The germ reduction chamber puts West Coast Wild Foods on the leading edge of the wild foods industry in terms of safety, consistency and quality. The company will be able to offer wild foods and food products that are organically treated for stable quality, consistency and shelf life for our entire product line.

The germ reduction and drying chamber was developed to address the need of the organic industry to treat food, spice and herbal products organically and non-destructively instead of the usual steam, chemical fuming or irradiation sterilization methods.  The germ reduction chamber approach has been adopted by leading companies in Germany and the USA to treat wild foods, herbs and spices with extremely good results. The principle is to combine heat, carbon dioxide and circulation in an enclosed environment for an extended period of time to achieve the effect of germ and parasite reduction and drying results. The chamber has achieved excellent results at West Coast Wild Foods in the initial germ treatment and product drying. We believe that the chamber is a significant advancement in organic products processing technology and that it provides West Coast Wild Foods with a competitive advantage in the wild foods industry.

West Coast Wild Foods specializes in the collection, processing, marketing and sales of wild mushrooms, berries and vegetables in North America. In 2018, the wild mushroom market share of West Coast Wild Foods exceeded 40% and is growing. This company is the result of our founders' lifetime spent in the mountains and forests of British Columbia exploring and learning about the wonderful wild mushrooms and other wild foods in the west coast of Canada and the USA.

This project is funded by the governments of Canada and British Columbia through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
