EPA registration granted for BioSpectra 100SC

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Department of Pesticide Regulation have approved its application for Pace International’s BioSpectra 100SC, for postharvest applications in citrus and stone fruit.

According to Pace International, this technology – while new to the postharvest fruit industry – has been successfully utilized for food preservation worldwide for over 40 years. It is approved as a food additive by the European Union, the World Health Organization and individual countries for use as a fungal biocontrol product.

“BioSpectra 100SC is the first natural anti-fungal agent for the postharvest industry in the past 20 years and has shown very strong performance against a broad spectrum of postharvest fruit decays, particularly Green Mold, Blue Mold, Gray Mold, Sour Rot, Brown Rot and Mucor Rot,” said Rodrigo Cifuentes, VP marketing and business development for Pace International.
