The Titan Corporation (NYSE: TTN) — today announced that United Food Group, LLC, has signed an exclusive, multiyear agreement to evaluate Titan’s patented SureBeam® electron pasteurization technology on its ground beef products. Under the terms of the agreement, Titan’s SureBeam Corporation will be the sole provider of electronic pasteurization services.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, United Food Group manufactures approximately 400 different fresh and frozen ground beef products for the retail and food service markets. The company joins some of the nation’s most prestigious food processors — including Ibp, Cargill, Emmpak Foods, Huisken Meats, Tyson Foods, Del Monte Foods, American Foodservice, and Hawaii Pride — who are committed to bringing safer and higher quality foods to American consumers through the use of Titan’s SureBeam® technology.

Similar to a microwave oven, the SureBeam® system uses ordinary electricity as its energy source to pasteurize food after it has been processed and packaged. Titan’s patented SureBeam® technology helps to eliminate the threat of harmful pathogens such as E. Coli, Listeria, Campylobacter and Salmonella in food without affecting its texture or taste.

“At United Food Group, safety is always our first priority,” said Gary Waldman, Vice President. “Exploring and adopting new, state-of-the-art food safety technologies such as SureBeam’s technology ensure that our ground beef products will always be of the highest possible quality.”

Headquartered in San Diego, California, The Titan Corporation is a leading-edge technology company that creates, builds and launches technology-based businesses, offering innovative technical solutions. Titan markets the leading technology for the electronic pasteurization of food products. The company’s three other core businesses develop and deploy communications and information technology solutions and services. The Company has 7,600 employees, annualized sales of approximately $1 billion and total backlog in excess of $2.2 billion.
