Antimicrobial Agricultural Treatments and Food Protection

Ag-ARMA® develops and produces a range of bio-based pesticides and biostimulants, food hygiene and preservation solutions, and a novel growing medium. And sustainability is at the heart of everything we do:

  • Our plant-derived platform tackles the biggest issues of agriculture and food system sustainability by targeting the microbial elements that hinder growth and create spoilage and illness.
  • Our polymers for food preservation and packaging reduce the need for plastic and are completely safe and bio-degradable.
  • Our growing medium is made from recycled paper and completely compostable. 

We are still in trial stages with some products, entering international markets with others, and working towards full international availability within the next couple years. We are building partnerships with manufacturers, industry leaders, and investors and welcome discussions around licensing and distribution.

Working to protect growing environments, seeds, crops, produce, packaging, and processing from the pathogens that cause spoilage, waste and food-borne illness

Agricultural Treatments

Seed and Crop Protection

Pathogen and pest control. ag-ARMA™ has solutions from seed to crops. These are biodegradable solutions which utilize carriers established in the agricultural industry. Multiple solutions are available depending on the crop type and conditions. Included in this section is biodegradable seed-ARMA™ and marijuana mildew control.

Food Processing

Pathogenic growth in first stage food processing is well known. ag-ARMA™ solutions provide pathogenic control and elimination on food equipment and in food growing and processing facilities. These range from farms through to animal and vegetable processing and packaging facilities. This also includes the washing of food for pathogenic control and the pretreatment of cotton, etc.

Food Preservation

Once picked fruit and vegetables to rapid deterioration. pre-SERVA™ barrier coatings can be applied by dipping or spraying and provide envelope protection including oxygen barrier and moisture barrier. pre-SERVA™’s biodegradable coatings are safe and can be removed by rinsing prior to consumption.

Food Packaging

pre-SERVA™ biodegradable antimicrobial coatings can be applied to paper, plastic, wood, composite packaging to provide an additional level of protection against pathogens. Direct solutions are in contact with the food in the form of wraps. Indirect examples include pallets, cardboard boxes, etc.
