Mild Preservation Technology

Food Tech Park Brainport unlocks mild preservation technology

Products that have a longer shelf life without losing taste, odour and colour offer new market opportunities. So if you would like to produce an export product with a shelf life of 150 days instead of 30, why not have a chat with our pascalisation partners at Food Tech Park Brainport.


Pascalisation gives you an edge

Pascalisation, or High Pressure Processing (HPP), can give entrepreneurs a significant edge. Our pascalisation partners are experts in extending shelf life using this mild preservation technology, using water to put packaged products under extremely high pressure, thus eliminating bacteria and decay. Pascalisation is healthier, as it retains full nutritional value, vitamins and minerals. It improves the shelf life of products: chilled food can be kept for longer while maintaining flavour. It also saves energy: a saving of 80% compared to pasteurisation using heat. And finally, it tastes better: preservatives are no longer required, so the products are Clean Label.


Products with high added value

Pascalisation mainly focuses on products with high added value that are suitable for export, such as:

  • fish and shellfish
  • chilled meats
  • chilled raw materials (such as egg pieces for egg salad)
  • fresh coconut water (a hype in the US and the UK due to its extreme hydrating properties, used as a natural replacement for synthetic high-sugar sports drinks)

Pascalisation is also great for: milk, chilled juices, baby food, freshly chopped fruit and vegetables, smoothies, chilled soups and fish, sauces and ready meals.



In addition to tolling, Food Tech Park Brainport also offers advice regarding product development and the purchase of AVURE pascalisation equipment. Want to ask Food Tech Park Brainport a question? Then contact Ivo Ploegsma via or via 06 - 53 18 55 70, without obligation.


“Consumers increasingly opt for healthy, fresh products full of flavour. Mild preservation using pascalisation is 100% natural and safe. It provides real opportunities for entrepreneurs. (Jasper van Altena, operations manager at Pascal Processing)

At Food Tech Brainport in Helmond, we help SMEs and larger SMEs to turn technology into money: technology used in the processing of plant waste, the extension of shelf life, and the separation of raw materials and/or waste streams. By doing so, we bring the best in food and technology (from the High Tech and Chemical industries, for instance) together.
