HPP technology has been generally regarded as a technique for premium, high value added food products. Occassionally more expensive than other further processing methods, and mainly targeted to the ever-growing market of all natural, minimally processed, No Artificial Ingredients foods.

Well, facts speak and markets rule: there is also a niche market for all natural, raw, premium pet food products… now using HPP technology as well.

Pioneering in this field were Stella&Chewy’s, a pet food manufacturer based out of Milwaukee, (WI), USA. On the food safety section of their website, they explain the process and the benefits it brings to their product offer. In their patent-pending process, Stella&Chewy’s combines high-pressure processing with an environmental pathogen-reducing treatment system, which continually sanitizes food-contact surfaces with cleansing plasma, safely and effectively destroying pathogenic bacteria.

When Stella&Chewy’s launched their HPP pet food range back in 2009, it was quite a surprise for many, such an example of innovation, a world’s first user of this emerging technique for a – wrongly assumed- market in which pathogen control, freshness and organoleptic quality could seem less relevant.

By 2012, other well known pet food players have come into the HPP space, for example Nature´s Variety from Lincoln, Nebraska, USA uses high pressure processing for its range of raw&frozen pet foods as quality and food safety protocol.

Primal Pet Foods, San Francisco, USA, also explains the process and its advantages to pet food owners who choose the best for their companions.

Voluntary recalls on Raw PET Foods after Listeria and Salmonella being detected by FDA

One of the less known applications of HPP is Pet Foods. Indeed many companies are starting to use this technology to produce more nutritious and tastier products.
Unfortunately, some issues unrelated to HPP may be after the recent recalls on many Raw Pet Food Products after FDA detected Listeria and Salmonella on many brands that are using or not HPP.

As Stella and Chewy´s (HPP) sais on their website, the issue has nothing to do with HPP and they´re looking how the organism had entered our production area after the HPP process.
