High pressure processing (HPP)
Simply fresh and safe – high pressure preservation at 6,000 bar
Consumers want natural, fresh products – ideally without additives and without the loss of nutrients caused by heating. At the same time, around 30% of food is still being thrown away, some of it before even being sold. High pressure processing by thyssenkrupp allows gentle preservation of food by high pressure – without additives or heat. The latter is an important difference to "classic" thermal pasteurization, even though HPP is also known as "high-pressure pasteurization". Products are processed in their packaging. It works for vacuum and modified atmosphere packs and for plastic bottles. The result: much longer shelf life and maximum product safety and therefore more satisfied customers. At the same time the texture, look, nutrients and taste of your products remain intact. And all of that is achieved while HPP being environment-friendly and free of waste.
