About HPP technology

High Pressure Processing (HPP) to date is the fastest growing non-thermal processing technology. It allows products to achieve a longer shelf life in refrigeration without needing preservatives while maintaining the best sensorial and nutritional quality of the fresh product. This technology is a cold preservation technique which consists of subjecting food to a high level of hydrostatic pressure (transmitted by water) up to 600 MPa / 87,000 psi from a few seconds to a few minutes. Pressure is transmitted uniformly and instantaneously all along the product, achieving a similar result as pasteurisation, but with no usage of heat.

HPP Advantages

  • Guranteed food safety. It destroys pathogens (Listeria, Salmonella, Vibrio, norovirus, etc.) and inactivates vegetative flora (bacteria, virus, yeasts, molds and parasites)
  • Minimally processed. HPP maintains all the organoleptic and nutritional properties of the fresh product.
  • Clean label. It avoids or reduces the need for food preservatives
  • Extended shelf life. It multiplies the shelf life of food products from three to 30 times, keeping the product quality along this period
  • Opportunities in new markets. It allows to enter the most demanding markets in terms of food safety as it is the case of cured ham in the USA and Japan
  • Wide range of food products. It can be applied to almost any King of food product. Discover some of these applications here
  • Innovative products. It allows to develop attractive products completely adapted to the current consumer demands
  • Maximisation of seafood meat extraction. It is the most effective and productive solution to extract raw meat from crustaceans shell and open mollusks with yields close to 100%, avoiding the need for boiling. This process maximises the output and allows to launch a new product with a higher added-value: ready-to-cook raw or frozen meat with no shell.
