Petroleum-based plastic materials stay in the environment for hundreds of years, entering the food chain and negatively affecting wildlife. Biodegradable packaging, made by vegetable material, has appeared as a solution since they decompose naturally, thus not affecting the environment. The worldwide innovation, Hiperbaric Bulk technology for processing big volumes of liquids in bulk, potentially adds to the solution in the High Pressure Processing field, since it allows to use any kind of packaging for HPP beverages.
Packaging not only extends the shelf life of foods but protects the products from detrimental external agents like chemical compounds or spoilage microorganisms. And combined with high pressure (HPP) lengthens the shelf life as well. Although, many food industries wonder if their current packaging would withstand pressures of up to 6,000 bar. In this post we talk openly about the technical aspects of packaging applied to HPP products and, especially, the use of polymer ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) so widely used in the food industry for its oxygen barrier capabilities.
Hiperbaric has published a new video in which we speak with total clarity of HPP technology, operation, applications, advantages and obtained results. We encourage you to see it!. Continue reading

Maryland Packaging has recently announced that they are opening their second premier High Pressure Processing (HPP) facility. Located at 3610 Commerce Drive in Baltimore, this new 30,000 square foot facility makes Maryland Packaging the foremost responsible and sustainable food life cycle company in the mid-Atlantic. With a state-of-the-art Hiperbaric 525 machine that allows for cold and safe pasteurization of sealed food items, the facility offers a host of packaging services, such as hot and cold fill bottling, cold press juicing, skin packaging, MAP packaging, and more.
This has been a very intense year for High Pressure, a growing sector which is called to be “must-have” technology for any food company whiling to be recognized as fresh, natural and nutritious.
The passion for HPP has become global: despite the United States remain the main market for Hiperbaric, other countries in Asia, Middle East or South America are growing quite fast as awareness about the relationship between our diet and our health grows around the world. Continue reading
