Food and drink processing equipment specialist JBT Corporation has acquired high pressure processing (HPP) equipment supplier Avure Technologies for $57M (£47M) in a move designed to expand its food processing systems, which extend food shelf-life.

Avure’s HPP technology uses ultra-high pressure purified water to keep packaged food pathogen-free, enabling it to stay fresh for longer. At very high pressures, bacteria such as listeria, E.coli, and salmonella are inactivated.

Foods using HPP include ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook meats, ready meals, fruits and vegetables, juices and smoothies, soups and sauces, wet salads and dips, dairy products, seafood and shellfish.

“With the expanding marketplace adoption of HPP technology as well as broad applications across both protein and liquid foods, the integration of Avure into the JBT portfolio means we can now offer comprehensive thermal and non-thermal preservation solutions to global food and beverage producers,”​ says JBT FoodTech president Steve Smith.
