Located in Delphos, Ohio, Hydrofresh HPP’s 36,000-square-feet refrigerated warehouse includes 1500 pallet positions for storing products pre- and post- processing in cool 40 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. And standing by to apply the HPP to all those products? A JBT/Avure AV-40X expandable HPP machine with the fastest throughput the industry has to offer.

“We have one of the best HPP toll service lines in the country,” said Mike Billig, Hydrofresh HPP’s Vice President of Business Development. “I’ve spent the last 15 years in the HPP business and helped design a gentle-handling system for HPP products that includes a lot of value-added services from catch-weight management to organizing and packing pallets to handling final distribution…anything a manufacturer needs for their product, we can handle. And because of the special gentle-handling line, yield loss is minimized, saving Hydrofresh HPP’s customers money.”
