Stay Fresh Foods Doubles HPP Capacity

Stay Fresh Foods, Meriden, Conn., and its partner Avure Technologies, Middletown, Ohio, welcomed the arrival of its second high-pressure processing (HPP) system.

The 350-liter system makes for a 16,000-square-foot addition in Stay Fresh Foods’ facility, which provides necessary space for more efficient processing of juices, deli meats, wet salads, ready-to-eat meals and other HPP-treated foods and beverages.

“Today, we’re not just celebrating our expansion, but also the success our customers are experiencing with HPP as a part of their approach to production,” says Amy Lawless, managing director of Stay Fresh Foods. “When we see our customers grow as a result of our partnership with them, we take it very personally and celebrate with them as we have seen some of them double and even triple their output.”

“Stay Fresh Foods has enjoyed great success serving the northeast through their dedication to quality and service,” says Matt Rutherford, senior vice president of sales for Avure Technologies. “The addition of this 350-liter [system] to their fleet of HPP equipment will not only help them serve their customers with greater capacity, but will also provide more flexibility and reliability.”

“This expansion will put us in even a better position to assure juice and other producers that we have ample room to meet their current and future production needs,” says Joe Ragozzino, vice president of operations for Stay Fresh Foods.

The company estimates that at least 40 new jobs will be created as a result of this expansion.
