Ravi Narain – CitroLife
About 21 years ago, food technologist Ravi Narain made a breakthrough discovery that would change the future of modern living. His desire was to decrease the amount of chemicals used in food processing. Mr Narain took citrus pith and pulp and transformed it into a eco-friendly powerful anti-bacterial, anti-mould, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant product called CitroFresh®.
This all natural active ingredient made entirely from plant based materials would become the foundation of CitroLife®. In 2004, Mr Narain’s CitroLife® technology became the first certified organic antimicrobial in the world. It’s been trialled and tested in numerous international laboratories to achieve a number of notable certifications and accreditations. Most importantly, it has been proven effective against bacteria, viruses, moulds, yeast and fungi while being totally safe.
“The protection of health in humans, animals and plants in a environmentally sustainable system is our vision for the future.” Says Ravi.
