BROOKFIELD, WIS. – Chemical manufacturer Hydrite announced a new exclusive multi-year partnership with PURE Bioscience, Inc. As part of the agreement, Hydrite will act as the exclusive distributor of PURE’s hard surface disinfectant in the dairy and plant-based protein processing market.

PURE produces antimicrobial products that contain silver dihydrogen citrate. The company’s hard surface product is an EPA-registered food contact surface sanitizer and disinfectant. Per PURE, the product was developed to rapidly eliminate food borne pathogens.

"Hydrite is a leader in chemical distribution, and we look forward to working with them as our exclusive distributor in addressing efficacious solutions in the dairy, beverage and food safety segments," said Tom Myers, chief operating officer for PURE.

Hydrite shared that it will distribute PURE’s hard surface disinfectant to dairy processing facilities, as well as plant-based protein facilities, where milk substitutes and other similar products are made.

"We are pleased to offer PURE hard surface disinfectant as part of our dairy sanitation solutions, expanding our customers' options for keeping their facilities clean and running smoothly," said James Mahmoudi, vice president of food at Hydrite.

PURE’s product is described as ideal for hard, non-porous environmental surfaces that come in contact with food. Hydrite shared that the disinfectant is non-corrosive, non-hazardous, colorless, odorless and rapidly kills bacteria, fungus and viruses while maintaining the lowest EPA toxicity rating.
