Hiperbaric, a global leader in High-Pressure Processing (HPP) equipment, is excited to announce its third Virtual HPP Innovation Week, which will take place from June 20th to June 22nd.

The three-day online conference is designed for the food & beverage industry, bringing together HPP technology users, food manufacturers and retailers, regulatory, and academic leaders, packaging suppliers and HPP third-party providers, also known as tollers.

The event will provide a forum for education, networking, and collaboration while demonstrating how HPP is revolutionizing the food and beverage industry.

HPP is a nonthermal food preservation technology that uses cold water and high pressure to inactivate food-borne pathogens and spoilage microorganisms. The process maintains nutritional integrity and taste and significantly increases shelf life without the need for preservatives, ultimately reducing food waste.

The HPP Innovation Week program will focus on five topics over three days, including trends, R&D, sustainability, commercialization, technology, and case studies. Attendees will have the opportunity to virtually tour Hiperbaric’s HPP equipment manufacturing facility and pilot plants in Burgos, Spain and Miami, FL.

The conference will have 35 sessions, with topics including:

  • Top 10 Benefits of HPP Technology in Food Processing
  • The Future of Food Packaging with HPP: Addressing Safety & Sustainability
  • Innovations in Pet Food Processing: What’s New and What’s Next
  • A Toast to Innovation: Trends & Developments in HPP Alcoholic Beverages
  • The Role of Automation & Robotics in the Manufacturing Process
  • Innovations in HPP Cheese, Yogurt, Dips, and More: What’s Next?
  • Advancements in High Pressure, High-Temperature Processing: New Applications and Technologies
  • Sustainability and HPP: Strategies for Building a Better Future
  • The Rise of Plant-Based Foods: HPP Innovation in Meat and Dairy Alternatives
  • The Retailer’s Advantage: How HPP Can Drive Growth and Expansion
  • The 2030 Vision: How HPP is Driving the Next Wave of Innovation in the Food and Beverage Industry?

More than 50 speakers and different food brands will participate, including Greenhead Lobster, Alpine, Old Neighbourhood, HPP Atlantique, PMMI o HPP Canada, and Fresno State, among others.

International manufacturers, academicians, and tollers also will share their perspectives. The extensive program includes case studies, individual presentations, moderated panels, exclusive interviews, and live Q&As with technology experts.
