Periodic Reporting for period 2 - BEVSTREAM (High Pressure Processing (HPP) equipment for large beverage productions)
Reporting period: 2017-03-01 to 2018-09-30
Phase 1 of Bevstream project consisted of the elaboration of a feasibility report regarding a new business line to be developed by Hiperbaric for the commercialization of highly productive HPP machines for processing liquids, working under a totally innovative concept. Afterwards, through Phase 2, Hiperbaric has developed the first prototype and prepared its commercialisation, under the name of Hiperbaric Bulk. The proof of concept is validated, the industrialization plan is ready, exploitation is ensured by FTO and two patent applications that will protect the novelty, the awareness campaign has resulted very positive and the commercialisation plan is updated.
The first commercial Hiperbaric 525 Bulk or Hiperbaric 1050 Bulk, which is a machine equipped with 2 processing chambers of 525 l that could produce up to 10,000 L/h, will be in production before end of 2019. The sales of this new line of machines will significantly increase Hiperbaric’s turnover, benefit and staff, strengthening its global leadership and probably becoming the main business line of the company before 2025.
The Hiperbaric Bulk line will allow Hiperbaric to deliver HPP technology to more types of liquid foods, so that fresher and healthier products at affordable cost will be available to a greater number of consumers around the world.
