High Pressure Processing (HPP) is the use of hydrostatic pressure to eliminate unwanted or harmful microbes from food or beverage products. There are a lot of benefits to HPP as the alternative to the traditional heat pasteurization process, which destroys a lot of important vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in consumer products. HPP cold pasteurization maintains the beneficial aspects of fresh food ingredients and can dramatically increase shelf-life without the use of preservatives.

How can you design a package to withstand up to 87,000 psi, and still have it be easy for the consumer to open after they purchase it? There are several factors to consider.
