High Pressure Pasteurization
Innovative food and beverage processing techniques call for innovative plastic packaging.
Such is the case here. CCC detected a growing market demand for High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) - where food or beverage is subjected to extremely high pressures to destroy pathogenic microorganisms. In response to this emerging market, we proactively researched HPP technology and related packaging requirements, and developed relationships with HPP processing equipment manufacturers. We continued our research into closure systems and began to build relationships with those suppliers as well.
Progress continued as CCC created state-of-the-art design features for our HPP packages that would stand up to the rigors of HPP processing while also meeting the brand and commercial needs of our customers. We then worked with our PET preform suppliers and engineering team to determine the best combination of closures, raw materials, and molding processes – specifically to support HPP processing.
From all of this innovative work, we created various HPP plastic bottle designs that met the size, shape, and branding requirements emerging product companies are looking for. Today, we are proud to say that CCC has rigid packaging solutions for the HPP marketplace that are currently being introduced to new and current customers.
Our Engineering Development Center, in partnership with our design entity, Studio PKG, is continually developing and testing exciting new innovative materials, designs, and technologies that will support our customer’s needs, including supply chain optimization and regulatory compliance. Through these efforts, we seek to continually improve - and advance our innovations - to ensure our packaging solutions are ‘Always Made Right.’
