It was confirmed that HPP has met the FDA threshold of a 5-log reduction of three major pathogens (E.coli O157:H7, Salmonella enterica and Listeria monocytogenes).
HPP was validated against its soon-to-be-launched Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juice.
Kevin Quirk, CEO of parent company Fresh Promise Foods, said it has worked long and hard to ensure that the vitamin-rich chewable juice blends are tasty while focusing on food safety.
“We know that our Harvest Soul Chewable Juice Blends, with all the extra fiber and protein gained from crunchy nuts and seeds, will provide a more substantive eating and drinking experience - something we like to call 'the Chewtrition Revolution,'" he said.
Harvest Soul is working with legal counsel and anticipates a speedy regulatory path to production.
The company's equipment is poised for production, and after Department of Agriculture approvals, should be producing within 30-60 days, with a ramp up planned for the new year.
