Non-toxic packing keeps bugs out of food
Insect infestation is one of the biggest problems facing food manufacturers and distributors, who fight a constant battle to keep bugs out of factories and warehouses. Many pesticides are off-limits to food producers because of their toxicity, which makes this struggle even tougher.
“After some study, we discovered a perfectly natural and safe way to keep insects away from food,” says Prof. Shlomo Navarro, co-founder of Israel’s Bio[pack]. “Our solution is natural, safe, long-lasting and unlikely to be something a bug could build up resistance to, unlike chemical pesticides.”
I would like to find a similar website focusing on America. We have Science Daily, Popular Mechanics, Scientific American—but these focus on discoveries that might mean something in the future. This particular link offers such discoveries, but also quite a bit of news about Start-Ups. And the one thing the US needs is Start-Ups.
