HPP Use in Meat Products

Create safe, natural, and flavorful Meat products that last up to twice as long


As consumers become more conscientious of the chemical additives and artificial preservatives that are being added to their food, manufactures are looking for cleaner ways to increase shelf life of their product without sacrificing a clean label. This is where High Pressure Processing benefits the meat industry; this natural, cold-water process gives meat producers the ability to create flavorful, clean-label foods that their consumers are looking for.

Over the last few years, meat products have been the main driver of the increased popularity of HPP because it provides a way to extend shelf-life freshness, maintains sensorial and nutritional qualities of the ingredients and improves food safety without the need for chemical additives or artificial preservatives. Regulatory food safety agencies such as the FDA and USDA require processes that are reliable, traceable, and effective; high pressure processing meets or exceeds those requirements, including the zero tolerance policy on Listeria.

By increasing the shelf life, in some cases, up to 90 days, HPP gives food producers the ability to increase shelf-life and expand market reach. This also creates an ease to creating new products and reduces returns of existing products.
