They are working towards developing a ready-to-use biosurfactant-based formulation, that can successfully aid all household consumers to decontaminate and sanitize their fruits and vegetables before consumption. This unique 100% organic formulation removes 99% of pesticides, chemicals, toxins, pathogens, germs and other lethal substances. Washing of fruits and vegetables in this formulation has been shown to curtail the shrinking of produce and double the shelf life of products even without refrigeration, which can have a huge market in the rural sector, where the over 70 million households have poor access or no access to electricity. The unique selling point of their formulation is that it is odorless, tasteless, non oily, non-sticky, retains natural taste and does not require a rewash step in plain water, which not only helps save water but also simplifies the cleaning process for large-scale cleaning operations at distribution and export centers. This product finds application with farmers for exporting their produce free of any chemicals and pesticides and avoid rejection, at hotels, community centers, consumers etc.
