By Mary Page Bailey |

Ecolab Inc. (St. Paul, Minn.; www.ecolab.com) has acquired the business of privately held Chemstar Corporation, a U.S.-based supplier of food safety and cleaning and sanitizing solutions focused on the grocery and food retail markets. Chemstar and its Sterilox Fresh product line serve customers in the U.S. and Canada, and the company’s 2018 sales were approximately $40 million.

“Chemstar’s food safety solutions align well with our existing offerings and will enhance and broaden our ability to meet the needs of our food retail customers,” said Bobby Mendez, Ecolab executive vice president and president, Global Services & Specialty.

Chemstar offers a range of food safety, sanitation and freshness solutions for kitchen care, surface and floor care, hand hygiene, food sanitation, and produce and floral freshness for food retail and convenience stores.

Sterilox Fresh produce and floral treatment solutions help the food retail industry meet increasing consumer demand for fresh food and floral products. ProduceMAXX, an EPA-registered antimicrobial product for produce helps enhance shelf life, protect against cross-contamination and control spoilage organisms to provide higher quality and safer produce. FloraFresh combines antimicrobial technology with a natural floral nutrient to help extend the freshness of cut flowers.
