High-pressure hydrostatic technology is now widely used in many types of food, but what are its latest developments, where are its developments headed, what other treatments are being investigated? What considerations should be taken in terms of quality and food safety? How are all these issues being addressed from a legal point of view in Europe?

If your company is interested in this technology, if you want to listen and dialogue with experts on the subject, and even if you want to submit a sample of your product to HPP treatment, take advantage of this session and participate on November 16th.
