Deb Australia’s OXYBAC™ takes first prize for innovation and excellence at The Australian ‘Food Awards’


The annual Food Magazine Australian ‘Food Awards’ were held in Sydney on Friday 8th August. This is the country’s leading industry awards ceremony which recognises new and innovative products in the food and beverage industry sector.

 Against stiff competition from a wide range of innovative products, the independent judging panel recognised the qualities of OxyBAC which resulted in them winning this prestigious award. With the category being open to so many products, the winner really does have to display a high degree of excellence and innovation. The category is open to all manufacturers of consumables, materials and equipment which are so important in supporting the food industry – especially in terms of food safety.

OxyBAC is a new, rich-cream foam, antibacterial hand wash that combines Deb Foam Technology™ with Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide antibacterial agent to provide unique benefits compared with all other antibacterial hand wash products used in food industry environments.

OxyBAC has excellent physical cleaning properties to remove both visible food contamination and invisible bacteria and unlike all other antibacterial actives, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) does not leave any toxic residual environmental contamination after use as it simply breaks down into oxygen and water.

OxyBAC™ carries HACCP International’s food safety certification. 

Clive Withinshaw, Director of HACCP International said ‘we were delighted that the judging panel recognised the qualities of this product not just because of the product itself but because of the importance of effective hand-washing products in food safety. This product is one of the few that has overcome all the issues surrounding anti-bacterial products and delivers a best practice solution’.
