High pressure processing validation

This course is available as a tailored option for those who have a number of staff who would benefit from the training. If you would like more information please complete the enquiry form

Benefits of attending

High pressure processing (HPP) is a non-thermal process, helping preserve the 'fresh-like' characteristics of food.  This one-day course is an introduction to HPP and aims to provide an overview in the application of HPP in the food industry. Delegates will be introduced to a range of technical factors to consider when developing products for and operating an HPP process. Practical demonstrations will give delegates first hand experience in the operation of HPP processing with sample products. Other areas intrinsically related to high pressure processing such as relevant regulations and validation will also be covered.

This course is ideal for delegates looking to use HPP for their products; or have the technology but need a greater understanding of the process for effective validation; or those looking to explore alternative processing technologies.  Other beneficiaries include food retailers who wish to understand the level of safety of products processed by high pressure. 

This is a tailored course that can be delivered either in person or online as virtual instructor led training.

Training Course content

  • Overview of the use and application of HPP
  • HPP validation considerations
  • Key regulations surrounding the use of HPP in industry
  • Packaging considerations
  • Product considerations
  • A walkthrough of HPP processing system
  • Practical session demonstrating HPP in operation and the impact on various products, products sent in advance by the delegates in suitable packaging will also be tested (please get in touch for packaging advice), peanut allergens cannot be processed.

Course Aims

  • To provide a broad introduction to High Pressure Processing, principals of the technology and commercial applications
  • To inform on how product and process parameters may impact process lethality
  • To demonstrate ways the process can impact on different products and packaging
  • To provide guidance on factors to consider for validating the technology

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course delegates will be able to:

  • Have an understanding on the operation and the range of products that can be processed through HPP
  • Understand the factors to consider when developing products for HPP
  • Understand the suitability of different packaging formats
  • Understand the requirements for validating an HPP process
  • Determine the suitability of HPP for their own products
  • Gain a practical understanding of the technology operation
