High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) Machines Installed In India
One of the more popular (but prohibitively expensive) means of non-thermal pasteurization is high pressure pasteurization, otherwise known as HPP. While the in-pack, non-contact, non-thermal method of pasteurization has found several takers in the US and Europe, the technology is make slow in-roads into India.
By our count, there are currently four high pressure pasteurization machines installed in India. The list of the owners and their locations is given below.

More commonly known by their brand, RAW Pressery, Rakyan Beverages was one of the first movers for high pressure pasteurization machines in India, and have an HPP machine installed at their unit in Panvel, Navi Mumbai.
