Miami, FL /PRNewswire/ - Squeezed, one of Houston's leading producers of fresh, cold-pressed juice cleanses, has acquired a new Hiperbaric 525L high pressure processing (HPP) machine to meet growing consumer demand while maintaining exceptional quality and safety standards.
HPP is an all-natural, chemical-free method of preserving fruits, vegetables and juices by subjecting them to extreme high water pressure rather than heat pasteurization. This allows the ingredients to retain their raw, fresh characteristics and maximum nutritional value.
The HPP process enables shelf life expansion from 3-5 days to 90 days without heat or preservatives, which helps with distribution. Additional benefits of HPP for cold-pressed juice include:
- Raw & Fresh: No heat means each ingredient remains nutrient-rich and flavorful
- Preserves Nutrients & Enzymes: Retains vitamins, minerals and other beneficial compounds
- Inactivates Bacteria & Pathogens: Meets strict FDA food safety regulations and prevents recalls
The new Hiperbaric 525L is the most productive HPP system, with a 525-liter capacity and the ability to process more than 8,000 pounds per hour. Its size and efficiency will allow Squeezed to increase output and meet rising customer demand while keeping production costs low.
Founded in 2012 by David Ojobaro, Squeezed has experienced rapid growth, now employing over 100 people and selling into retail and private-label markets. HPP technology has also enabled Squeezed to reach direct-to-consumer markets nationally. The company selected Hiperbaric as a partner due to their safe and reliable HPP equipment and exceptional technical support.
"As demand for our juices continues growing exponentially each year, we needed a production solution that would allow us to scale while maintaining the safety, nutrition, taste and quality that our customers expect," said David Ojobaro, Founder of Squeezed. "Hiperbaric's 525L system delivers on all fronts, and we've been very impressed with their customer service support. We look forward to growing our business together for years to come."
"We are thrilled to support Squeezed's impressive growth with the supply of our 525L HPP machine, the safest and most advanced on the market," said Roberto Peregrina, Hiperbaric USA Executive Director. "Through the use of HPP, Squeezed can maximize quality, safety and operational efficiency as they bring their nutritious juices to new customers across Texas and beyond, while rapidly expanding nationwide. We congratulate their success!"
