We hear you, and we’re ready to make it happen.

Universal Pure knows what North America’s leading food and beverage producers want because we work closely with customers like you every day to thrive in a changing marketplace. Our core services — High Pressure Processing and Pre-HPP, Post-HPP Value-Added Services — are focused on helping you reach and exceed your goals for product safety, quality, taste and nutrition.

High Pressure Processing

Universal Pure is the largest third-party service provider of HPP globally. We’re advancing this cold pressure technique to give you the advantages of a non-thermal process. Instead of destroying nutrients or changing the flavor profile of foods or beverages with older technologies that rely on heat, HPP uses the combination of cold temperatures and high pressure to improve food safety, help ensure the quality, taste and texture of your products and extend the shelf life.

HPP is not a side business or add-on for Universal Pure. It’s core to what we do, and our unique approach delivers cost-efficiencies and quality control at critical stages of production and distribution.
