Our Story

In the food, agriculture and healthcare industries there was an obvious and very significant need for appreciably improved antimicrobial performance. In the home, to protect families and pets, the need was just as great.

Byotrol technology was invented in the late 1990’s to help a bakery improve their microbe control. The results were exceptional and so started a rigorous process to ensure that the technology was tested, proven and developed to bring this same solution to any business or consumer hygiene need or concern.


It’s not every day you discover a technology that could change the life of every person on the planet.

Stephen Falder, Inventor of Byotrol technology

Over the course of the last decade, Byotrol plc has seen many notable successes


  • Byotrol technology gaining M&S terminal disinfectant approval status and the technology subsequently adopted across M&S store estate

  • Global patents granted for Byotrol technology

  • Byotrol technology becoming renowned in the food manufacturing industry for superior Listeria control

  • Becoming the partner of choice for 3 of the top brands in the UK Petcare market

  • Entering into a joint venture with WhatIf! Innovation to access global consumer markets

The joint venture Byotrol Consumer Products (BCP) delivered Byotrol technology in brands such as Tesco, Boots, Tommee Tippee, Morning Fresh (PZ Cussons) and Karrimor before starting the development process for new technologies in relationships with specialist chemical partners. Products powered by Byotrol technology continue to be on sale for consumers and extensively used in industry across the globe.
