Council aims to advance High Pressure Processing (HPP) as a critical technology for the food and beverage industry.

PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, announces the formation of an industry council focused on the advancement of High Pressure Processing (HPP) as a critical technology in the food and beverage industry. Convened by PMMI, the Cold Pressure Council will address questions about the technology while developing and formalizing industry best practices. The new council will also promote networking among professionals using this processing technology.
High Pressure Processing transitioned from the lab to the production floor almost 20 years ago. Now, it is gaining greater recognition among consumer packaged goods companies for a variety of products. “In this age where consumer choice is critical, HPP is a cost-effective method for processors to maintain taste, texture and nutrition while providing the clean label consumers are looking for,” says Jeff Williams, president of Avure Technologies, and a founding member of this Council.
