Hope Foods to install Avure 350L HPP system for Hummus production

FBR Staff Writer Published 19 July 2013

US-based Hope Foods has signed an order for a second high-capacity HPP system - Avure 350L for its new Hummus product line.

In March, the company became exclusive Avure Technologies Certified Tolling Partner in Colorado with the installation of its first Avure HPP system - the QFP-100L 600 model.

According to Avure Technologies, among the options explored by Hope Foods, HPP stood out as the only solution that met shelf-life goals while maintaining the product taste, texture, and nutrition. HPP uses ultra-high water pressure instead of heat to disable pathogens and spoilage bacteria.

The Avure 350L will be delivered in late August and is slated to be operational from 1 October.

Hope Food HPP business development head Morgan McArthur said that HPP practically tripled the shelf-life of Hope Hummus product line.

"In addition, it makes our product safer and enhances our capabilities. With our launch into the East Coast this summer, it is the key to our growth into a national brand," McArthur added.

Hope Foods is based in Louisville, Colorado, where its toll processing business serves food and juice suppliers throughout the Rocky Mountain States. The company produces organic, gluten-free, and vegan products using the ingredients sourced from organic food suppliers.
