Hydrofresh HPP

Posted by Meredith Mickey on 1/31/18 9:12 AM

Delphos, OH – Hydrofresh HPP, an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group, is constructing a $10 million pasteurization plant at 1571 Gressel Drive in Delphos that uses innovative high-pressure processing (HPP) technology.

Unlike traditional pasteurization method which uses heat prior to packaging to eliminate micro bacteria that are present in food, Hydrofresh HPP will be using High-Pressure Processing. HPP is a cold pasteurization technique by which products already sealed in their final packaging are introduced into a vessel and subjected to a high level of isostatic pressure, up to 87,000 psi, transmitted by water. This process produces a 5-log reduction in salmonella, e coli, and listeria (bacteria that causes food borne illness) while preserving the color, texture, nutrients, and flavor of the product. Because the food is treated in its final packaging, the chance for recontamination is virtually non-existent.

Song inspiration: Join Together, The Who 1972

"When you hear this sound a-comin' | Hear the drummer drumming | Won't you join together with the band"

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! No matter when you celebrate, or how many times you get to celebrate with family and friends, we all have our traditions.

For some, it's getting together with family, watching the Lions and then eating your feelings by devouring all the fixin's that make up your holiday spread. For others, you may get together the day after with your Framily and talk about the family drama that happened the day before. Whatever your traditions are, I hope they are everything you hope for this year.
