Benefits of HPP & Pet Food
Pet food manufacturers can benefit hugely through the application of high pressure to ensure product safety and expand market opportunities. HPP is used extensively in the pet food industry to:
• Inactivate pathogens to keep both pets and humans safe from dangerous cross-contamination
• Extend refrigerated shelf life
• Preserve the flavor, texture, and nutrients in raw food ingredients
• Provide a safe alternative for immunocompromised dogs and cats who would otherwise not be able to eat a raw diet
HPP offers both microbiological benefits and process enhancement for most raw pet food ingredients including meat, poultry, fruits, and vegetables. Innovative food processors use HPP to expand their product offerings as well as their distribution chain.
