The combined processing power of both machines, over 50 million pounds annually, along with its strategic location and significant cold storage capacity, will allow NutriFresh Services, LLC to be a one-stop shop for food and beverage needs.

Christopher Jenkins, Director of HPP Operations at NutriFresh Services, LLC, commented, “High Pressure Processing (HPP) is an exciting technology that will allow food and beverage companies to manufacture safe and preservative-free products with the added benefits of extended shelf life and clean labels. NutriFresh Services, LLC will grant easy, safe, local and efficient access to these benefits along with our existing portfolio of services, which will tremendously support the growth and development of the food and beverage industries.”

HPP technology has been used commercially for over ten years in North America and mainland Europe and is growing at the rate of 20% per annum. HPP is an innovative technology that simply uses high pressure to safely and naturally inactivate harmful bacteria and viruses in food products while having minimal impact on the taste, texture or nutritional quality of the food. No heat, chemicals or preservatives are ever used in the process. HPP delivers greatly enhanced food safety while also extending the shelf life of products up to fourfold. The ability to deliver on both these fronts makes the use of the technology a very attractive proposition for processors, retailers and consumers. HPP also makes possible the production of natural, clean label preservative free, high quality products which are rapidly growing in popularity with global food consumers. HPP can be used across a wide variety of foods including meat, dairy, seafood, fruit, vegetable juices and ready-to-eat meals.
