The time has come where you have read all about High Pressure Processing (HPP) technology, seen all our webinars, participated in our HPP Innovation Week, and it is time to kick-off your project! It may seem intimidating at first, but Hiperbaric is at your service throughout the entire process! We are the global leaders in HPP technology, and are able to offer our two HPP Incubators: one located in Burgos, Spain and the other in Miami, FL, USA. In addition, we have a large global HPP Tolling Network of companies that could also provide assistance. In this article, we will break down in steps how to kick-off your project with Hiperbaric.
First Things First
A survey conducted to food experts on the use of novel non-thermal technologies in the U.S. showed that HPP was the most used one, with a preference of 35.6% among other technologies such as PEF, Pulsed Light or Irradiation. This result doesn’t come as a surprise, since High Pressure Processing offers:
- A non-thermal technology;
- Minimally processed;
- Shelf-life extension of products;
- Helps to maintain the organoleptic and nutritional properties of food;
- A clean-label product;
In the case you have decided to use HPP in your products, there are several questions you should prioritize, such as:
- Is the product HPP Compatabile?
- Is the packaging suitable for HPP?
- The food regulations for HPP in your country

In addition, our Applications Team are a group of food scientists, PhD and M.Sc. that have a deep knowledge in all of questions above and can guide you through the process of deciding the most suitable packaging, help with formulation, product validation and much more.
Is it necessary to invest in a machine to use the technology?
If the investment in a machine is still out of reach, it is still possible to use the technology and to develop an HPP product line. The tolling service of HPP to other food companies is a business model that allows a company to provide services and give access to HPP technology to companies of any size, as a previous step to investment or technology acquisition. HPP tolling is the ideal option for small companies, startups, restaurateurs and new exporters, looking for the opportunity to commercialize a great variety of HPP products, without the initial capital investment.
