MIOX Announces Distribution Partnership With Quimiproductos

Partnership offers company entry into Latin American food and beverage market with safer, cost-effective water disinfectant solutions

MIOX Corp., a provider of safe water disinfection, announced an exclusive distribution partnership with Quimiproductos for MIOX products in the food and beverage market in Latin America including Mexico; Central America; Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil and Argentina.

Based in Mexico, Quimiproductos manufactures and distributes chemical products to a broad range of sectors in the food and beverage industry, including soft drink, brewery, food, meat, water treatment and product distribution. Quimiproductos was selected as an exclusive MIOX distributor because of its market leadership position in this marketplace and complementary business model, according to MIOX.

“We’re very excited about partnering with Quimiproductos in Latin America,” said Bob Newton, MIOX vice president of industrial markets. “Their experience and intimate understanding of the food and beverage market in those regions will allow MIOX to bring a cost-effective, green disinfectant that improves safety by eliminating hazardous chemicals in food and beverage plants.”

MIOX aims to provide advanced, cost-effective solutions to the beverage industry for all water treatment applications including plant source water treatment, surface or groundwater, process water treatment, wastewater treatment, cooling towers on the facility, clean-in-place for process fill lines--including syrups and raw sugars--and bottle rinsing. MIOX’s clean technologies treat water using only salt, water and power to generate a dilute disinfectant on site. Creating disinfectant on site is safe, cost-effective and environmentally responsible, cutting back transportation requirements, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption and eliminating the storage and disposal of chemical containers, MIOX said.
