Green Plant Provides Formula 1 with Fresh, Cold-Pressed Juice at Miami Grand Prix Race
MIAMI, May 14, 2022
Juices Manufactured Using Non-Thermal High Pressure Processing for Food Safety, Freshness and Extended Shelf Life
MIAMI , May 14, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Green Plant, a Miami-based manufacturer of fresh juices and other foods, provided Formula 1 with fresh, premium juice at its Miami Grand Prix race May 6-8.
The juices are made using high pressure processing (HPP), a non-thermal technique that provides food safety, fresh, premium quality without preservatives, and extended shelf life. Other applications include deli meat, plant-based dips, salsas, seafood, baby food and pet food.
"Green Plant is the leader and innovator in utilizing this revolutionary technology with the sole purpose of expanding the Cold-Pressed HPP juice category, which will help increase awareness to consumers," said Federico Intriago, CEO, Green Plant.
Green Plant uses the Hiperbaric 420 to manufacture its juices and other fresh food products. It is the first time it delivered juice via the Petainer keg, which can be HPP'd, allowing juice to be dispensed easily and sustainably at festivals, trade shows and other events. Green Plant recently acquired its third HPP unit, making them the largest toller in Florida, processing up to 250,000 pounds of food per day.
"We're glad to see companies like Formula 1 recognize that cold-pressed juices are a premium beverage for their events," said Roberto Peregrina, director, Hiperbaric USA, with its U.S. office in Miami. "I'm sure customers appreciate the option of being served fresh beverages with no preservatives and a fresh-squeezed taste."
With HPP, foods, in their final packaging, undergo a process that uses cold water and high pressure to inactivate foodborne bacteria. Other HPP advantages include no preservatives, enhanced taste and nutrition and expanded shelf life, reducing food waste.
Petainer kegs offer an alternative to bottled juice to improve logistics and reduce environmental impact. With these needs in mind, Petainer and Hiperbaric partnered to create the world's first keg for High Pressure Processing of beverages. The kegs offer beverage manufacturers a safe, sustainable, and cost-efficient packaging solution.
The kegs fit into the vessel of Hiperbaric HPP in-pack units, optimizing the filling ratio and system productivity. In addition, the Petainer kegs and fittings are made of 100% recyclable materials and reduce the CO2 footprint, becoming a more sustainable solution.
Other fresh, cold-pressed juice companies use the Petainer kegs to distribute juice on tap at events, festivals and retail locations.
