Universal Pasteurization Co. LLC announces its new 170,000 facility in Malvern, PA. The Malvern facility will offer High Pressure Processing (HPP), cold storage and other value-added services to food companies in the northeastern United States.
The facility, located just outside of Philadelphia, is conveniently situated near four major interstates and is in close proximity to a wide variety of food and beverage companies. The new Malvern location builds upon Universal’s industry leading HPP toll processing footprint in Nebraska, Georgia and Texas.
“Customers value our superior service and multi-facility network. Their continued support and direction drove our decision to expand in the Northeast. This new, first class facility will have over 9,000 slots of refrigerated space as well as two state of the art 525L HPP machines and the capacity to add up to 4 additional machines.” commented Melanie Galloway, Universal CEO.
HPP is a USDA and FDA recognized process that utilizes hydrostatic pressure, not temperature, to destroy harmful bacteria in foods while maintaining their nutritional value and supporting clean label initiatives. HPP’s uses include beverages, sauces & dips and ready-to-eat and raw protein products with many new applications being explored.
Universal is the largest provider of HPP tolling services in the United States with locations in Lincoln, NE; Villa Rica, GA; Coppell, TX and Malvern, PA and is a leading independent provider of cold storage and other value-added services to food manufacturers.
