ST. John’s, NL (Nov 7, 2023) – Hiperbaric, the global leader and supplier of high pressure processing (HPP) equipment, is pleased to announce its sponsorship and participation in the inaugural Seafood Industry Innovation Summit (SIIS) 2023 hosted by the Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation (CCFI) and Fisheries and Marine Institute’s Centre for Aquaculture and Seafood Development (CASD).
Taking place November 14-17 in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, the summit aims to promote sustainability and innovation in Canada’s seafood sector and explore key themes like automation, digitization, and by-product valorization.
As a summit sponsor, Hiperbaric will showcase its industry-leading HPP solutions for food safety and shucking automation through a plenary session, pilot plant demo, and new product development workshop.
“Hiperbaric’s expertise in high pressure processing will be an invaluable addition to our summit,” said Keith Hutchings, Managing Director of CCFI. “This technology has tremendous potential to drive innovation in our sector while supporting the productivity, profitability, and sustainability of Atlantic Canadian seafood.”
Dr. Heather Burke, Director of the Marine Institute’s Centre for Aquaculture and Seafood Development stated, “We are thrilled to have Hiperbaric as a SIIS 2023 sponsor and look forward to their dynamic and interactive sessions at the Summit. Hands-on demonstrations of HPP will increase participants’ understanding of how this advanced processing technology can be utilized in their own seafood processing applications.”
“We are excited to support this pioneering event that is bringing together key players to shape the future of Atlantic Canada’s seafood industry,” added Roberto Peregrina, Executive Director of Hiperbaric USA. “HPP is an ideal technology for seafood processors looking to extend shelf life, ensure food safety, automate shucking operations, and develop value-add, clean-label seafood products that meet consumer demand for freshness and convenience.”
On November 15th, attendees will get hands-on experience with HPP equipment during a live demo in the pilot plant, where Hiperbaric will showcase the shucking and meat extraction of live lobsters and oysters.
On November 16th, a new product development workshop presented by Hiperbaric will demonstrate how HPP can naturally extend shelf life and eliminate pathogens enabling clean-label and value-added seafood offerings like fresh pre-cooked crabmeat and octopus, raw marinated fish, seaweed salad, smoked fish, and convenient ready-to-eat seafood meals and dips.
Registration will be limited to 150 delegates to provide unique hands-on opportunities for participants to engage directly with industry experts during equipment demonstrations and workshop sessions.
Registration for the Seafood Innovation Summit includes free passes to the North Atlantic Fish and Workboat Show, November 17 & 18 at Mary Brown’s Centre, St. John’s.
