Irish Examiner - Farming - - TECHNOLOGY FOCUS - Stephen Cado­gan

Di­versey Deosan’s bid to de­velop a con­sumer-friendly nat­u­ral teat dip with­out com­pro­mis­ing milk qual­ity has re­sulted in the com­pany win­ning the main in­no­va­tion award at the re­cent Agriscot show in Ed­in­burgh. Their Triathlon prod­uct is com­pletely nat­u­ral, made from re­new­able re­sources, and is biodegrad­able with­out dan­ger­ous residues. On-farm tri­als have demon­strated in­stant dis­in­fec­tion, a 99.999% bac­te­ria kill rate within 30 sec­onds of con­tact.

It is also proven to im­prove teat mois­ture re­ten­tion, thus pro­tect­ing skin con­di­tion. It con­tains a 100% nat­u­ral emol­lient source, with­out mois­ture re­duc­ing sul­phate com­pounds. Triathlon also helps to ex­fo­li­ate and re­move dead skin cells. The nat­u­ral for­mu­la­tion means no milk safety risk. With In­fant Milk For­mula such an im­por­tant Ir­ish and EU dairy prod­uct, there is a 150 mi­cro­gram per kilo­gram io­dine con­cen­tra­tion in raw milk for pro­cess­ing into IMF. So the award-win­ning Triathlon new prod­uct is well placed to meet strin­gent reg­u­la­tions and com­ply with tight­en­ing milk con­tract spec­i­fi­ca­tions. In the UK, Triathlon is priced at about £2.50 per litre. The in­no­va­tion award in­cluded £1,000 of free ad­ver­tis­ing in The Scot­tish Farmer pub­li­ca­tion, one of the award spon­sors.

The main in­no­va­tion award at Agriscot went to Di­versey Uk for Deosan Triathlon: from left, Brian Sang­ster, Al­i­son Cox, David Jack­son, Patsy Hunter, and David Hamil­ton.
