Universal Pasteurization and Universal Cold Storage Company becomes Universal Pure 

September 28, 2017

The nation’s largest provider of high pressure processing (HPP) and cold storage services, formerly known as Universal Pasteurization and Universal Cold Storage, has changed to a new name, Universal Pure. The company will continue to provide HPP processing, cold storage and all of the same pre-HPP and post-HPP value-added services it has in the past.

With the updated name, the company has also introduced a new visual mark and updated online presence at www.universalpure.com. The new website is designed to serve as a hub of information about HPP, the cold chain and other relevant research, data and perspectives.

By using pressure instead of chemicals or heat, the processing method has enabled many cleaner-label products. HPP said it has gained favor with food safety and quality assurance professionals for its ability to inactivate pathogens and spoilage organisms while preserving taste and nutritional content.

“The use of HPP is growing, yet a lack of understanding around the technology continues to be an opportunity to accelerate adoption,” said Duffy.
