HENDERSON, Colo. — Birko, a leader in providing food safety solutions to the protein processing, food and beverage industries, has announced a guaranteed 20% cost savings through its integrated food safety solution, The Birko Advantage.

The Birko Advantage combines Birko’s expertise in chemistry, equipment and technology to help processors achieve a more efficient, economical and safer food plant operation.

“Through our specialty chemicals for food and beverage processors, state-of-the art harvest and dispensing equipment and integrated IT solutions, The Birko Advantage provides a guaranteed 20% cost savings or we will make up the difference,” said Mark Swanson, Birko’s CEO. “Processors will see an immediate return on investment through chemical cost analysis, automated sanitation practices and more efficient use of existing resources.”

Philip Snellen, Birko’s vice president of sales, said, “There are several ways customers can achieve a guaranteed 20% savings when they take advantage of this program. For example, a customer who is using lactic at the current retail price can save 20% by switching to Beefxide®. Or for those who are using the powdered bromine system, we can guarantee a substantial savings by switching to the Birko BLAST (Bromine Liquid Antimicrobial System Technology).”

Birko’s environmentally safe chemistry includes industrial strength formulations for cleaning, sanitizing and antimicrobial interventions. Its state-of-the-art equipment includes automated chemical dispensing systems, as well as a complete line of USDA-approved harvest and processing equipment through Chad Equipment, LLC, a Birko company.
