Hiperbaric wins PMMI Technology Excellence Award for HPP In-Bulk technology
Hiperbaric Bulk technology is a global innovation for high volume juice processing. Based on a revolutionary concept, in which beverages are processed in-bulk prior to bottling, the process obtains a 90 % filling volume, nearly double that of in-pack HPP technology.

Hiperbaric Bulk technology is a global innovation for high volume juice processing. Based on a revolutionary concept, in which beverages are processed in-bulk prior to bottling, the process obtains a 90 % filling volume, nearly double that of in-pack HPP technology. It also allows for any type of packaging, including glass, paper cartons, or aluminum cans. A fully automated process, HPP in-bulk results in an 80 % reduction in labour costs and nearly 50 % cut in energy.
“This technology is being used in Europe with great success and due to the latest trends in packaging sustainability, we remain positive that this will be another success story in the near future for the U.S.,” said Roberto Peregrina, director, Hiperbaric USA.
Hermes Boissons, a French copacker, uses Hiperbaric’s in bulk equipment for its customer, Juste Pressé, a natural fruit and vegetable juice company, which recently launched the world’s first HPP juice in carton packaging.
Alexia Chassagne, co-owner of Juste Pressé, said, “Hiperbaric HPP in-bulk technology has allowed us to develop a product that is 100 % aligned with our brand identity. We see this product as a game-changer in the HPP beverage industry since it provides premium quality and taste with environmentally friendly packaging.”
High pressure processing (HPP) is a cold pasteurization technique by which products, already sealed in their final packaging, undergo high pressure transmitted by water. HPP’s benefits include food safety, clean label and extended shelf life. HPP enhances flavour, texture and nutritional properties of food, without preservatives.
