Hiperbaric receives European Technology Award for its high-pressure-processing innovation
Hiperbaric – the world’s leading supplier of high pressure processing (HPP) equipment for the food industry – received a European Technology Award at a ceremony held recently at the Ritz Hotel in Paris.
The organisation rewards the work of professionals, companies and institutions in the European technology sector – across an array of industries. As a technology-based and benchmark company in its sector, Hiperbaric was awarded in the Technological Innovation category.
“We are honoured to receive this award, which recognises leading European professionals and companies that have made innovations in their industries,” said Andres Hernando, Hiperbaric CEO. “Hiperbaric has a 20-year history of innovation, and we continue to make R&D a major focus of our company.”
Hiperbaric invests more than 10 per cent of its net profit in R&D and more than 20 per cent of its staff are directly or indirectly involved in R&D projects.
Celebrating 20 years of innovation
Hiperbaric recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, at which it announced the expansion of its facility in Burgos, Spain, alongside its latest innovation – Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) for post-processing metal parts with additive manufacturing.
The company began its journey in the field of high pressure in 1999 with the development of its first HPP (High Pressure Processing) equipment, a technology that employs high isostatic pressure (up to 6,000 bar) to extend the shelf life of food and guarantee food safety. Hyperbaric is today the world leader in this technology, thanks to its commitment to R&D through more than 20 innovation projects.
Hundreds of companies worldwide use Hiperbaric equipment for the processing of juices and beverages, meat, fish and shellfish, fruits and vegetables, dairy and prepared dishes, demonstrating the highly versatile nature of the technology.
Headquartered in Spain, the company also has an office in Miami to serve its North American market. For more information, visit: www.hiperbaric.com
