Among this year’s speakers are Manny Picciola, managing director, L.E.K. Consulting; Dr. David Acheson, CEO, The Acheson Group; Shawn Stevens, food industry lawyer; and Andy Hanacek, editor-in-chief, The National Provisioner.

Mark A. Duffy, CEO, Universal Pure, said, “The HPP Summit is a great way to bring together food and beverage industry leaders to discuss where the industry is heading and to help each other better leverage HPP best practices. It’s open to anyone interested in HPP, from manufacturers, retailers, and food service operators already benefiting from the technology to companies interested in learning the basics about the purposefulness and relevancy of HPP.” Duffy added, “Universal Pure’s ‘We CARE about YOU’ company value means that HPP is bigger than a process or procedure. We fully recognize what we do, and what this technology does, affects people and families. Food safety is our greater cause at Universal Pure.”
