Problem

There are 2.8 million antimicrobial-resistant infections each year in the U.S.

The CDC estimates there are 1.35 million Salmonella infections annually, 265,000 E. Coli infections, 1,600 Listeria infections, and 1.2 million MRSA infections. While many infections are treatable, there is a growing list of antibiotic-resistant microbes.

Solution

Stopping infections at the source

Our GARD™ technology prevents harmful microbes from growing on products, effectively stopping infections in their tracks before they reach human contact.

Result

Keeping food safe and out of the garbage

GARD™ has two main benefits; it stops the growth of harmful microorganisms, keeping people safe, and because it stops food from spoiling, it prevents it from being thrown in the garbage.
