High Pressure Processing Pilot Plants

High Pressure Processing Pilot Plants

Complimentary product development support for food & beverage manufacturers


The Hiperbaric HPP Incubator is a testing hub with state-of-the-art high-pressure processing pilot plant equipment that supports food entrepreneurship and value-added food & beverage products.

At both pilot plants, companies receive free HPP testing and consulting for product development, packaging performance, and shelf-life and validation testing support.

The goal is to educate and help companies determine if HPP is a viable technology for their products.

Whether it is creating a new recipe in our kitchen, testing packaging, or coordinating a shelf-life study, Hiperbaric is here to guide you throughout the process.
