Can natamycin be used with another preservative as well as sorbates?

Numerous studies have shown natamycin to be more effective in the preservation of foodstuffs such as cheese combined with nisin.

In addition to being an authorised official preservative for cheese (with code number E-234, the number before natamycin), research on nisin has also been carried out in Argentina for use in protecting raw and precooked meats against bacteria in the Lysteria genus.
