Universal Pasteurization Co., LLC, Lincoln, Neb., announced plans to build a new 170,000-square-foot facility in Malvern, Pa. The Malvern facility will offer high-pressure processing (HPP), cold storage and other value-added services to food companies in the northeastern United States. 

The facility, located just outside of Philadelphia, is situated near four major interstates and in close proximity to a wide variety of food and beverage processors. 

“Customers value our superior service and multi-facility network. Their continued support and direction drove our decision to expand in the Northeast. This new, first-class facility will have over 9,000 slots of refrigerated space as well as two state-of-the-art 525L HPP machines and the capacity to add up to four additional machines,” says Melanie Galloway, chief executive officer.
