For efficient, affordable protection against cross-contamination, you can’t beat a Unitherm Infrared Pasteurizer. Our systems are approved by USDA FSIS and recognized for post-process, pre-package surface pasteurization for RTE deli products, like turkey, ham, and roast beef.
The product is pre-cooked, chilled, and then pasteurized immediately before the final packaging. This eliminates the risk of pathogens being drawn deep into the product during vacuum packaging. According to third-party validation studies, this process results in over a 3.0 log reduction in Listeria monocytogenes in just 60 seconds, with little or no further chilling required. This process eliminates the need for post-pasteurization bags, so you save money on every product.
