"High Pressure Processing is the only way to naturally extend the shelf life of chilled, clean products and is increasingly used in all food categories," said President Mark Lodge. "We help the food industry using our certified HPP facilities to provide clean, wholesome, unadulterated foods that are fresh, guaranteed safe and long lasting. In fact, our TRUE FRESH HPP® technology demonstrates the ability to extend chilled shelf-life for up to 10x normal expectations. As a result, this allows manufactures to supply products that are guaranteed pathogen free with a truly clean label on a national footprint while simultaneously increasing operational efficiencies."
High Pressure Processing (HPP) uses extreme water pressure to safely kill pathogens. This process extends food shelf-life up to 10x while preserving all nutrients and minerals which are typically lost while using traditional pasteurization processes. The HPP process takes products in its original and final packaging, pressurizing it up to 87,000 psi (six times the pressure found in the deepest part of the ocean) over a range of a few minutes.
TRUE FRESH HPP® continues to provide state-of-the-art HPP tolling services and related food solutions. Expanding its peripheral services beyond tolling, TRUE FRESH HPP®'s services include product development, packaging, packing, labeling, refrigerated as well as frozen storage, supply chain and logistics services. For companies that need assistance with product innovation and HPP readiness, TRUE FRESH HPP® employs food industry experts that can take products from concept to shelf edge. Their test kitchen, paired with a team of research and development experts, help develop new products and processes that capitalize on the benefits of HPP technology. In addition, future plans to add more HPP tolling locations across the country, in Chicago, the Southwest and Southeast will make TRUE FRESH HPP® the dominant force in this exciting innovation space.
