PAA is finding applications across the food spectrum from dairy to produce to meat processing and is being increasingly adopted. PAA is an effective antimicrobial and sanitizer that is used to decrease the incidents of pathogenic organisms in or on food, and/or help reduce the number of decay or food spoilage organisms normally present in the processing of meat, dairy, poultry, seafood and vegetable food items.
