Birko will host a Food Safety Reception at the United Fresh 2014 tradeshow in Chicago.
The event will be Wednesday, June 11, from 4-6pm in Room S404d in the south building, level four, at McCormick Place.
“Birko’s produce food safety experts will be on hand, but the best part is that you can have your picture taken with some very nasty characters!” said Kelly Green, Birko’s third-generation owner and chairman of the board.
The three costumed “nasty characters” represent common pathogens of Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli.
Birko manufactures and provides antimicrobial interventions, sanitizers and other products effective in fighting foodborne pathogens in produce operations.
The firm will be at Booth #2158 during the show from 10-13 June.
