EFGE is the exclusive global distributor of BiotrexX (and related products) which is anantimicrobial coating - for food packaging materials as well as for more "logistics oriented" materials – whose proprietary formulation affords protection from an extensive list of harmful pathogens from moment of application to BEYOND the consumption of protected products by consumers.

Biotrexx has been proven to significantly extend shelf life of food products which are packaged inside pre-treated containers. Prior application in the source-based logistics component of the food supply chain – taking us closer to where McKinsey says 30% to 40% of the global food supply is wasted – enhances that shelf life extension.

EFGE has been able to obtain FDA and EPA registrations in the US, which allow us to put Biotrexx on the inside of packaging materials such as clamshells, trays, boxes and even film which will be in direct contact with food. This is the most efficient and effective place in which to insert Biotrexx in the supply chain.

Once Biotrexx is present as an invisible surface coating on the inside of containers, it will start acting as a biostatic agent that prevents the development of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogenic colonies that, when left unchecked, reduces the shelf life of food. The effect of the Biotrexx treatment on the packaged food is, first and foremost, a significant extension of shelf life and, second, a fresher, healthier product when it arrives to the final consumer.
