Technical Abstract: Contamination of foods with human pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, norovirus, and other pathogens is an ongoing challenge for growers and processors. In recent years, cold plasma has emerged as a promising antimicrobial treatment for fresh and fresh-cut produce, nuts, spices, seeds, and other foods. As a waterless, chemical-free sanitation method, cold plasma technologies are being pursued along multiple tracks. This presentation will provide an up-to-date summary of cold plasma research and development – its efficacy, impact on product quality, likely commercial applications, regulatory status, and key challenges for the future.
