Supporting your sustainability goals
Our mission at Innogiene is to bring sustainability to the food processing industry through innovative hygiene technologies.
The King Report, which is a requirement for JSE listed companies includes the following: “leaders should direct the company to achieve sustainable economic, social and environmental performance. It views sustainability as the primary moral and economic imperative of this century”.
At Innogiene, we contribute to the achievement of these ideals by bringing innovative technologies to the hygiene practices of the food processing industry. Technologies that have been created by scientists for scientists.
The presence of biofilms in the food processing is a major concern for producers. Biofilm Remove’s products provide easy-to-use, validated solutions for the detection, removal and, most importantly, the prevention of biofilms.
Biofinder detects the presence of biofilms in 30 seconds revealing microbial hot-spots, while the use of enzymatic products gives QA’s a tool with which to break down biofilms on both open surfaces as well as in closed systems.
Alvim Biofilm Sensor
The ALVIM real-time, on line, Biofilm Monitoring System is able to detect bacterial settlement from first phases attachment (down to 1% of surface covered by microorganisms).
With this information users can make data-driven decions around optimising cleaning treatments, biocide treatments (in industrial water systems, cooling towers, pure water lines, etc.) and the application of enzymes for biofilm treatments.
CARBOTECT is a rapid-test diagnostic tool for the detection of organic (carbohydrate) residues in closed circuit systems allowing users to gauge the efficacy of clean-in-place processes.
CARBOTECT detects and monitors biofilm as well as the presence of potential food allergens and residual chemicals in the processing equipment which are present due to ineffective cleaning and rinsing procedures.
JIMCO UV-C & OZONE TECHNOLOGY
JIMCO A/S is known as an innovative and groundbreaking developer of a technology based on photolytic oxidation.
Photolytic oxidation is "cold burning" in which the harmful microorganisms in the air and on surfaces are destroyed and at the same time odour-binding protein chains are broken down.
The technology is used in waste-water treatment systems, odour and fat reduction units as well as air and surface disinfection in food processing facilities.
Electro Chemical Activation (ECA)
Electro Chemical Activation is the process of passing a diluted saline (brine) solution and ordinary tap water through a patented electrical process (reactors) to produce a powerful disinfectant – HYPOCHLOROUS ACID. The product is produced on site and replaces the use of existing harmful chemicals for the sterilisation of produce, water, equipment and personnel.
The product is completely harmless to the environment, humans and animals while being able to meet the high standards demanded by the food processing industry.

Today as an entrepreneur was a GREAT day. What a feeling! When you do your follow up call after your client has bought their first order, used the product for a month and says, "We've tried two other companies who said their products can remove biofilms and they just...
Innogiene exhibited its range of innovative hygiene technologies at the Red Meat Abattoir Association annual conference at Spier in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Biofilms were once again a hot topic at the conference and delegates were pleasantly surprised to discover...
Catalase is an enzyme found in almost all living cells, and is almost universally found in biofilms.
The presence of Biofilms is characterised by frequent and unexplained spikes in TVCs, where these have released microorganisms into the environment. This can also follow closely on a ‘deep clean’ either where mechanical action has disturbed the surface of the biofilm...
