OUR STORY. 

Byron's breakthrough came when an anti-mould chemical caused thousands of people to suffer burns from new leather sofas. His innovative safe leather treatment was suddenly in demand. 
 
The smelly socks of his football teammates sparked another idea. If the treatment stopped fungus, why not the spread of bacteria that gives sweat its unpleasant odour? Byron used the formula on one sock but left the other untouched. After the game came the 'eureka' moment: the treated sock didn't smell. It put Byron on track to develop the now widely used Micro-Fresh® technology. 
Our thinking is guided by the mantra, "Why not?". Our vision is to be recognised by brand owners and brand users, globally, as an essential ingredient to preserve and prolong the freshness of any product.
