“We are honored to be recognized by the judges for excellence in food safety, but we are even more grateful for the popular vote that showed support from the Viva Fresh community,” noted Chip Starns, Chief Operating Officer of ScanTech Sciences. The company applauds the Texas International Produce Association for creating the Gateway to Innovation Awards to encourage and celebrate innovation in the produce industry.

Dante Galeazzi, President of TIPA, celebrated ScanTech Sciences’ achievement: “We are proud to have ScanTech Sciences as long-time members and neighbors in McAllen, and we anticipate that they will continue serving as innovation leaders.”

ScanTech Sciences’ food safety solution – Electronic Cold-Pasteurization™ (ECP™) treats fresh produce for pathogen inactivation, pest sterilization, and shelf-life extension. The company designs, manufactures, and operates Electronic Cold-Pasteurization™ (ECP™) facilities, where fresh commodities are treated for retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors. ECP™ treatment is paired with a revolutionary commerce platform that offers best-in-class cold chain management and logistics solutions to ensure that treated commodities are handled according to their unique specifications.

The company’s first food treatment facility – the Rio Grande Valley ECP™ Center – is nearing completion in McAllen, Texas. The Rio Grande Valley ECP™ Center will treat a wide variety of commodities, including fruit, vegetables, fresh-cut commodities, and fresh herbs. ScanTech Sciences looks forward to bringing its solutions to market in the coming months.
