Zep Inc. (NYSE:ZEP), a leading consumable chemical packaged goods
company that manufactures a wide variety of high-performance maintenance
and cleaning chemicals, today launched Zep's Apex Egg Defoam Plus, a
fast-acting, non-silicone, free-rinsing defoamer that can be used in
both alkaline and acid cleaning operations. The company will showcase
the product, along with its extensive line of Egg Washing Systems and
antimicrobial treatments for the Egg & Poultry industry, at the
International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE), Jan 28-30 in
Atlanta (Booth #7441).
Zep's Apex Egg Defoam Plus is clear and colorless, and will not leave an
objectionable odor. It is highly concentrated and extremely dilutable in
water at 1:1000 up to 1:5000, making it extremely efficient. It is
available in 55-gallon drums or 275-gallon totes.
The new product is another example of Zep's complete systems approach to
cleaning and sanitation, which includes the products, equipment and
value-added service food processors need to help them handle the
challenges they face every day. The company is a Black Pearl Award
winner for corporate excellence in food safety and quality and is
aligned with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards, allowing it
to create customized programs that reduce the risk associated with
microbial outbreaks and effectively deal with them should they occur.
"From egg processing, hatcheries and grow houses, to all aspects of
poultry processing, processors can rely on Zep to help them improve
their sanitation programs and reduce operational costs while maintaining
product quality," said Steve Nichols, Group President of Zep Inc.,
adding that the company has partnered with the United Egg Producers
(UEP) cooperative to stay on top of the ongoing challenges the market
faces and to support its members with best practices in food safety amid
changing USDA regulations.
