How long is the product's shelf life?
Our products are the cleanest label on the market today. We do not use any chemical preservatives or artificial ingredients; however, we use the most impressive and latest clean label technology know to man. We skin pack our meals, eliminating all oxygen.
Basically, oxygen can cause food spoilage in several ways. It can provide conditions that will enhance the growth of microorganisms; it can cause damage to foods with the help of enzymes; and it can cause oxidation.
Microorganisms can often be found growing on the surface of foods when air is present. We also use HPP (High Pressure Cold Pasteurization). High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a pasteurization method that uses pressure rather than the traditional method of heat to kill microorganisms in foods.
It also helps with the safety of foods by killing vegetative pathogenic microorganisms including Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. These technologies allow us to create the healthiest, cleanest label products with no degradation in flavor, color, nutritional values with an extended shelf life for up to 45 days at 36°F and heated to 165°F internally before consuming. HPP technology is very expensive and extremely complicated, Fusia Foods is the sole manufacturer of HPP’d meals in the Mid-Atlantic. Unlike other meal companies, their products can start deteriorating withing hours and that is why they only offer 5=4 to 5 days shelf life. You and your family’s safety are our number one priority, and the perfect taste and nutritional is our second and equally as important priority.
Do your products really last for 45 days?! Even the seafood meals?
You better believe it! High pressure processing has been backed and supported by tons of professional research and labs. In order to ensure this, our own facility has conducted several of our own validation studies by accredited research institutes and universities such as Cornell.
These studies have verified the incredible impact of HPP and validate the safety of our products to the very last day of consumption. We have also executed shelf life studies by an accredited lab for all of our products to further verify the authenticity of our incredible shelf life.
Do you sell directly to consumers?
Currently, Fusha’s meals and products are sold exclusively at our retail partners. By focusing on supplying in retail locations alone we eliminate the need for our consumers to purchase our product via a subscription or delivery fee. By servicing retail locations alone, we also get rid of the need to use additional packaging and thereby help prevent and limit our waste factor and environmental impact.
We are developing an innovative solution to direct consumer delivery and hope to be servicing consumers at the convenience of their homes within the next year!
