FI "Best Innovation in food industry" gold for EBI food safety

Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition

At FI Europe, the world's largest food ingredients event, with a record breaking 23,000 visitors and over 1,000 exhibitors in London, a distinguished panel of judges has awarded its prestigious Gold Award to EBI Food Safety of The Netherlands.

In its fight against Listeria, and other dangerous bacteria, the food industry has embraced a "green" solution, using bacteriophages as the way to go. EBI Food Safety, first-to-market with a commercial bacteriophage product, fended off competition from eight other finalists to scoop the Oscar of the Food Industry, for its LISTEX(tm) product against Listeria monocytogenes, the deadly food pathogens.

EBI Food Safety (, located in Wageningen ("Food Valley"), The Netherlands, develops and markets natural bacteriophage products against dangerous food pathogens and is viewed as product leader in this field. Earlier this year EBI Food Safety was elected as one of Holland's 25 most promising young enterprises by FEM Business Magazine. The company's scientific network includes collaborations with universities and research centres around the world.
