Daniele Foods installs new HPP machine

FBR Staff Writer Published 11 September 2012

Daniele Foods has installed Avure Technologies’ high-pressure pasteurization (HPP) machine, designed to ensure safe quality of meats and extend the shelf life of the product.

The 350-liter HPP system from Avure Technologies utilizes extremely high water pressure (up to 87,000 pounds per square inch) to inactivate microorganisms and enzymes and destroy food pathogens.

Since HPP doesn't utilize heat, chemicals or preservatives, the flavor, texture, vitamins and nutritional characteristics of Daniele's finely cured Italian meats are left untouched.

Avure Technologies noted that the new technology has the added benefit of keeping the artisan meats fresher longer -- in many cases doubling shelf life over conventional chemical preservation methods. This wider selling window allows Daniele to extend the distribution chain and enter new geographic markets.
