The Cold Pressure Council, in support of growing High Pressure Processing (HPP) solutions, announces its newest membership category for trade partners. The Trade Partners membership is for retailers and foodservice companies that sell brand products utilizing HPP to consumers.

With a growing membership of over 30 companies, the Cold Pressure Council leads, facilitates and promotes industry standardization, user education and consumer awareness of HPP. Managed by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the council addresses questions about HPP while developing and formalizing industry best practices.

The new Trade Partners membership includes the following benefits: one vote per company for Cold Pressure Council Board members and other actions requiring membership vote per bylaws; ten percent registration discount for Cold Pressure Council meetings; and two complimentary registrations to the Cold Pressure Council Annual Meeting.

In addition, the Cold Pressure Council offers its High Pressure Certified logo to members who verify that they properly use HPP in their food production operations.

“The Cold Pressure Council is excited to provide even more opportunities for retailers and food service companies through its new Trade Partners membership,” says Joyce Longfield, vice president, Product Innovation, Good Foods Group LLC and chairperson, Cold Pressure Council. “Our goal is to encourage growth of HPP for numerous food and beverage products.  The benefits for taste and nutrition – key drivers for consumers – are outstanding.”
