NutriFresh Services, LLC, an Edison, N.J.-based subsidiary of NJ Frozen Storage (NJFS), is scheduled to open what is said to be New Jersey’s first high-pressure processing (HPP) tolling facility with the help of a Hiperbaric 300 machine.
The HPP facility will reside inside NJFS’ refrigerated and frozen storage facility located minutes from New York City, New Jersey ports, Newark airport and Route 95.
NutriFresh Services installed a state-of-the-art Hiperbaric 525-liter capacity machine, what is said to be the first HPP machine to be installed in a food manufacturing plant in the state of New Jersey. The combined processing power of both machines—over 50 million pounds annually—along with its strategic location and significant cold storage capacity will allow NutriFresh Services to be a one-stop shop for food and beverage needs.
"High-pressure processing is an exciting technology that will allow food and beverage companies to manufacture safe and preservative-free products with the added benefits of extended shelf life and clean labels,” says Christopher Jenkins, director of HPP operations at NutriFresh Services. “NutriFresh Services, LLC will grant easy, safe, local and efficient access to these benefits along with our existing portfolio of services, which will tremendously support the growth and development of the food and beverage industries.”
