On September 2015, Lima (Peru) will host the VIII AVOCADO CONGRESS, event which takes place every four years and reunites the leading experts in avocado for a series of conferences and exhibitions of interest to any industry professional.
Avocado, guacamole and other products derived from this fruit are one of the industries which have benefited the most from the high pressure conservation technology (High Pressure Processing: HPP) development.
As world-leading HPP equipment manufacturing company, Hiperbaric will attend the event organized by Prohass Peru. The Avocado industry is one of Hiperbaric oldest customers and one of the sectors most committed with High Pressure conservation.
As demand grows for clean label products or preservatives-free products and the impossibility of using thermal processing techniques to increase shelf life, Hyperbaric´s technology is the best industrial scale solution for the conservation of guacamole. The main advantages of high pressures for avocado manufacturers are:
INCREASED SHELF LIFE
High pressure treatment can lengthen up to 10 times shelf life of guacamole, passing from a 5 days shelf life in raw guacamole to a 6-8 weeks shelf life in the case of HPP-treated products. This is because the treatment inactivates lactic acid bacteria, molds and yeasts effectively, as well as pathogenic bacteria (Listeria, Salmonella, E. coli…) that can sometimes contaminate the product, while retaining much of antioxidants natural avocado, which favors the preservation by the partial inactivation of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) and lipoxygenase enzymes (LOX), mainly responsible for the oxidation of guacamole.
By altering the composition of the product, HPP preserves the flavor of fresh product as well as almost all nutrients, antioxidants and various carotenoids (α-carotene and β-carotene among others), criptoxantines, lutein, etc.
CLEAN LABEL PRODUCTS
Getting a label free of additives (or clean label in English) represents one of the biggest challenges for the modern food industry. This is critical in the case of oxidation-sensitive products such as avocado, which by their nature cannot be treated with heat. High pressures allow to obtain long-life products with a lesser use of preservatives.
Access to new markets is often especially difficult when it comes to fresh fruits, mainly due to the following reasons:
- Distance from target market
- Loss of the qualitative characteristics of the product during shipping
- Quarantine regulations to which fresh products are subject in these destinations
This makes High Pressure processing one of the most interesting post-harvest applications when it comes to access new markets.
Roberto Peregrina, responsible for the company in New Zealand and Australia with extensive experience in the application of high pressures avocado and other vegetable products, will attend to the Congress as a representative of Hiperbaric.
Roberto will be happy to answer any question attendees will have about HPP technology and applications on avocado derivatives or on any other product.

Hiperbaric has joined (as unfunded partner) the french project BLAC HP – Bactéries lactiques combinées avec hautes pressions pour un procédé durable de stabilisation des produits carnés réfrigérés (LACtic Bacteria combined with High Pressure for a sustainable stabilization process of refrigerated meat products): http://www.blac-hp.fr/.
The aim of the project is developing a new strategy for stabilization of refrigerated processed meat products by combining high pressure (HPP) and biopreservation using lactic acid bacteria. It is a project of high scientific content, but clearly focused on solving one of the problems that the meat industry faces every day: trying to reduce or eliminate the use of preservatives. The case study that will apply is the removal of nitrites in cooked ham to increase safety and shelf-life of the product.
The project was approved within the call Appel Générique Programme 2014 Défi Sécurité Alimentaire launched by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR). It will last for 48 months (January 2015 – December 2018) and will have a budget of 0,8 M €. The Université de Bourgogne (PAM Laboratory, procédés alimentaires et microbiologiques) coordinates the project. The consortium counts with 10 members, six research institutes and 4 companies: CTCPA, ONIRIS (GEPEA & SECALIM), INRA (Micalis) AgroSupDijon, IFIP -Institut du porc; SBV (porc biologique); CHR Hansen; Cinq Degrés Ouest and Hiperbaric.
The role played by Hiperbaric is to offer advice and give access to HPP equipment for processing product testing.
Colton, CA, June 9, 2015 - Lineage Logistics (“Lineage”), a warehousing and logistics company backed by Bay Grove, is installing additional High Pressure Processing (HPP) machines and packaging equipment at its Allentown, PA and Mira Loma, CA locations. The capacity expansion follows an increase in consumer preference for clean labels and demand from companies wanting to protect their brands, preserve product condition and extend product shelf life.
EXPO Milano 2015 is the Universal Exposition held in Milan about food and nutrition. During the EXPO 2015 semester (May 1st 2015 through October 31st 2015), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is going to arrange in Cremona (1 hour from Milan) an international program of top-class 3-5 day executive courses on agri-food related topics.
CEEP – Cremona Executive Education Program courses are addressed to entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial associations belonging to the agri-food industry; buyers and traders of food products; experts and managers of public and international institutions; academics, researchers and Ph.D. students; managers of multinational agri-food and green chemistry related firms; etc.
Each course includes a mix of lessons led by experts in an international perspective and field trips throughout the Po food valley, with visits to the most prestigious Italian manufacturing sites.
