Company overview

We focus on the design, development and delivery of safe, effective and sustainable hygiene solutions. We work collaboratively with our customers to meet stringent hygiene standards, whilst improving the productivity and sustainability of their operations.

The food industry is the most resource-intensive industry on the planet, and our innovations are helping to reduce the use of scarce resources.  Ozo develops systems that transform water and salt into a powerful cleaning and disinfection solution. Our scalable electrolysis systems enable businesses to replace the use of hot water and hazardous chemicals in food processing and production.
