Hiperbaric will attend the VIII World Avocado Congress 2015 in Peru

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.

NUTRITIONAL IMPROVEMENT 

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.

MARKET ACCESS

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 IS INVOLVED IN THE BLac HP PROJECT

blac HPHiperbaric 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.

Customer Demand Drives Lineage to Increase High Pressure Processing Capacity at Two Facilities

Colineagelton, 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.

Busy days at Anuga Foodtec

Hiperbaric, S.A. launched with success its new High Pressure Processing (HPP) model at the last Anuga Foodtec in Cologne, the biggest and most productive in the world. As a result of a hard investment in R+D, it is fast becoming the best seller of the company from Burgos (Spain), which expects to overpass € 50m turnover this year.

“Overall, Anuga Foodtec has been a great event for us. We received over 200 qualified visitors to our stand. Usually a good show for us bring about 35-40 qualified visits per day. This year in Cologne demonstrates that the interest in the High Pressure Technology is still growing strong, because we have had more than 50 visits per day”, says Francisco Purroy, Technical Sales Director for Europe and Asia.

The new launched industrial model, Hiperbaric 525, captured much of this attention. At its stand, Hiperbaric showed this machine, more than 18m long, with a vessel of 525 liter capacity and a productivity of 3,000kg or liters of packed product per hour, in its integrated configuration, which reduces the footprint and increases reliability and maintainability.

Andrés Hernando, Hiperbaric CEO, remarked “Our main market is still North America, but Europe and the rest of the World also began to seek HPP equipment, to request these increasingly more productive and cost efficient units.”

“The next important date in the Hiperbaric schedule, of course, the Bta” he said. (Barcelona, 21-24 April).
