U.S – Scantech Sciences, a company enhancing the quality of produce by eliminating pests and pathogens  has achieved the United State Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) certification for commercial operations at its Rio Grande Valley ECP Processing Facility.

This milestone is the culmination of years of proprietary technology and process development, which led to the United State Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) certification of its operations hub in McAllen, TX.

More importantly, it signals the company’s achievement of full commercial operations and reflects its ability to safely and effectively treat fruit and produce flowing through Texas border crossings along the Rio Grande Valley.

The company also announced its transition to a new name, Reveam, together with a reimagined brand promise, corporate identity and website.

The Reveam name was inspired by the idea of renewal and a reimagined future enabled by the company’s proprietary technology.

This ground-breaking treatment eliminates harmful pests and deadly pathogens while extending shelf life at the peak of freshness and pinnacle of safety. E-Beam Electronic Cold-Pasteurization (ECP) offers fully integrated cold-chain in a chemical-free, heat-free process and promotes environmental sustainability.

The treatment includes full cold-chain integrity and case-level traceability to further enhance the benefits of quality and compliance.

Dwayne House, Reveam’s CEO, said the new brand represents the next stage in the company’s growth and internal transformation.

“Achieving USDA certification is a credit to all members of the team who have dedicated so many hours to the pursuit of safer and better tasting fresh fruit and produce.

“I’m proud of the pioneering work our team and technology has achieved and look forward to a safer, healthier and more sustainable future. Now is the time to scale our commercial operations and accelerate growth under our new Reveam name and brand,” he said.

Reveam’s new brand positioning focuses on its fundamental advantages as a new alternative to traditional chemical agents and heat treatments that diminish taste, appearance and quality. It is also uniquely positioned to radically reducing food waste and food cost, while advancing efforts to feed a growing world population.

The company looks to rapidly expand the varieties of fresh fruit and produce processed through its Rio Grande Valley ECP Center and expand operations to additional critical fresh food processing locations throughout the United States.

ECP’s ability to eliminate deadly pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and Cyclospora through a chemical-free and heat-free treatment lays the foundation to become a major contributor to a safer and healthier produce supply chain.
