The HPP treatment
From juices to yogurts, from (vegan) hummus dips to ready-to-eat meals, HPP can make all these foods and many more last longer without heating or adding additives or preservatives.
Thus, the process not only offers advantages for producers and consumers, but is also characterized by its environmental friendliness. Only electricity and tap water are needed for the preservation process. No waste is produced and the water can be reused.

HPP treatment in the largest HPP Center in Germany
The three winning startups can look forward to a treatment at the high-tech Uhde HPP Center in Quakenbrück, Germany. Since the products are already in their final packaging during the HPP process, a wide range of products can be handled at the service center.
As a competence center, the HPP Center also offers comprehensive additional services. This makes it particularly interesting for food startups that are at the beginning of their product development and need support in microbiological testing, packaging optimization or marketing.
