The partnership with food technology company Agri-Neo demonstrates Olam’s investment in enhanced food safety for both conventional and organic ingredients
Olam Food Ingredients (OFI) has recently announced that its spices business is entering into a strategic partnership with Canadian firm Agri-Neo to provide the industry’s first organically pasteurised dried onions. The partnership combines OFI’s market leadership in dried onions and Agri-Neo’s pasteurisation technology, Neo-Pure.
As a certified-organic solution, the Neo-Pure Pasteurized (NPP) dried onions will support OFI’s global customers in delivering ingredients to the highest food safety and quality standards.
The technology enables pasteurisation without radiation, which cannot be used in organic ingredient processing, and will enhance food safety in OFI’s organic and conventional dried onion ingredients.
OFI’s dried onions are used across a broad range of applications including pizzas, burgers, sauces, snacks, marinades and soups. As the world’s number one producer of dried garlic and onions, food manufacturers can trust OFI’s expertise in supplying safe, high-quality ingredients and the company’s co-creation capabilities across savoury, snacking and bakery categories.
