  • Today the key advertising message in both eating at home or out is FRESH Produce and food safety . Pure develops what they say is the key to making food production safer and fresh produce much safer to eat. So what happened now ,why are there no announced contracts signed or even stories in the national press and trade journals. Mgmt resumes make it sound like they should have the right connections , but no results. I know poultry is down the road and might mean something but today we have approved products that as far as I know even Subway is not sold on it's effectiveness. WHY ?????

    As far as I can tell nothing was discussed that indicated anything positive is going on with the produce spray or the contact cleaner. Hopefully I have the wrong info .

    During the earnings call, financial analysts quizzed the Chipotle executives about the chain’s new food safety procedures as much as they asked about future profits.

    Ells and chief financial officer John Hartung both cited a blanching policy for certain fresh produce commodities as a key element of the new efforts to keep pathogens out of Chipotle’s food. Ells said individual restaurants would be blanching whole avocados, onions, jalapeños and citrus fruits.

    “We’ve put in place a blanching procedure which actually is boiling these items in water for a brief period of time, five seconds, which destroys any microbe that might be on the surface,” Ells said.

    Hartung went further, saying the simple nature of blanching will help ensure its effectiveness.

    “If you blanch for just a matter of a couple seconds in boiling water, it’s an instant kill step,” Hartung said. “So it’s not like you’re relying on some kind of complex procedure or new process in the restaurant. It’s a very clear step that, when followed, it is going to make each ingredient absolutely safe.”

    At least two scientists who have done extensive research with fresh produce and foodborne pathogens disagree.

    Keith Schneider, a food safety microbiologist at the University of Florida, and Trevor Suslow, a food pathologist and extension research specialist at the University of California-Davis, said fresh produce would need to be submerged in boiling water much longer than two to five seconds to be an effective kill step.

    For cucumbers, which have relatively smooth skins, a minimum blanch time of 15 seconds is recommended. Produce with rough skins — such as avocados and citrus fruit — would require even longer blanch times.

    Both scientists said pathogens left alive after a short dip in boiling water could cross contaminate ice baths used to cool down the produce, as well as food preparation surfaces and other ingredients.

    Institutional sales thru Bunge can make this really work. My research says progress, but takes plenty of time and patience. Do not bet the farm

    Hopefully we get some news about actual sales. The world know from actual problems that improvements are needed in food safety the government agrees that our product does what it says and is non toxic . We have heard how hard a time the company is having gaining sales traction . Now is the time for positive sales action nobody expects overnight huge results but we need signs of enthusiasm from potential well known customers. We will see soon enough !!!!!!

    nothing new but more exposure is good.

    Sounds very optimistic like all the recent news/ but right now investors are not speculating/ i really think it is because of the lack luster results from Subway. Nobody expects the use of these products to sky rocket but investors must see more adoption to get serious interest from investors. Remember the company has a very long term history of failure . Maybe it will change.

    (Chipotle is also planning to start an advertising and social-media campaign soon to woo back its most loyal customers. ) I have no reason to think this quote from Chipolte will include Pure, mostly because of the very poor reception the incorporation of using PURE to help control food safety is going so slowly at Subway. I have heard the company say they have only been able to sell contact control to only 25% of the Subway outlets and really nothing at all about the use of the produce spray at Subway.

    It is positive , Blackrock would only invest in a risky situation like this if they think they can hit a real home run at least 10X. They are disciplined as they only are risking a tiny percentage of their portfolio. I can only imagine the research that went into this decision. This confirms a investment but follow their lead and only take a small position.

    If this is really the solution to adding to food service safety , the fact that you are not a great sales organization would of course not help. But at the same time organization that need a solution should be lining up to take advantage of a solution. So far not one article in the WSJ ,NYT or trade jounals I have found. Just amazing to me because investigative reporters spend all their time looking for break through stories.

    One thing we have heard nothing about is the Bunge product Algawise. Food service use of food oil is very important , I have read that Bunge sells 8 billion per year in food oils . The product is new and it takes time but not to hear one thing about testing and sampling seems strange.

  • A listeria outbreak linked to Dole packaged salads has hospitalized 12 people in six states in the past six months, including a Michigan resident who died of the illness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Friday. In addition to Michigan, patients were from Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

    Tests from the Ohio Department of Agriculture found listeria bacteria in a package of Dole field greens produced at a processing facility in Springfield, Ohio. The bacteria was genetically related to the listeria found in people who became sick, according to the CDC.

    The best Pure presentation ever

    I also though it was a good presentation. I did notice one statement he made that began with we believe ,rather than our research says we have the best food safety method available for food contact & produce available. Why let the audience think you are not completely sure your product is the best ??? Isn't that what we believe means ????

    In response to one of its biggest health and public relations challenges in its 22 year history, Chipotle has vowed to be a leader in food safety going forward, hiring well-known food safety expert Mansour Samadpour, the chief executive of IEH Laboratories and Consulting Group, immediately to to help improve its standards. So far, the company has pledged to sanitize its operations, introduce more-stringent testing of its ingredients, and administer a number of new protocols, including cleaning lettuce before its shipped, pre-cooking certain vegetables, and shipping chicken and steak in larger bags to reduce the amount of handling.

  • Chipotle will close Feb. 8 for companywide meeting on food safety

    They must protect their business, Pure says they are the needed protection. If they do not include PURE IMHO it is over. If they do wonderful for the company and the investors. Amazing that this opportunity comes just in time after approval and that our board says they have all these food connections.

    I am not betting since I did not win last night . With the major investors running a QSR that uses huge amounts of produce together with the fact that the investors had complete knowledge of all the testing and potential for these products , I consider them pre sold and expect a announcement any day. If this does not happen how could these same folks go to an investment conference and talk about potential profitability.

    Chipolte claims they are going to run a major campaign explaining their food safety plans. Pure claims they have a major answer to food safety. This would lead to a very positive role for Pure, one would think.

    Thank you for the response an executive chef could ask his distributor salesman to have his companies buyer give him a call , If you go to the Bunge sales site Algawise is included in it's product list maybe he could get the buyer to call his Bunge salesman and find out why it is not available . I am not sure he is motivated enough to do this, but executive chef's (decision makers} have huge clout if they want to use it. He might even be able to call direct to Bunge sales office . Good luck

    PURE has a long non performing track record and now has some interesting new very timely and important products. Presentations are ok but with it's long history of failure only real sales will influence investors !!! If the company can announce some sales before the conference it will get real interest. Right now it is just a very speculative story..
