The MicroPast process

Food stays fresh longer with MICROPAST®. Thanks to the efficient pasteurisation method, products in refrigerated display cases can be preserved for up to 90 days.

MICROPAST® is an extremely gentle process and the short process time and low thermal load mean that texture, colour and nutrients are preserved.

With MICROPAST®, pasteurisation is achieved in just 10 to 12 minutes. Cooking and pasteurisation occur in one single step for a continuous and cost-effective process with no pre-cooking.

Being a gentle process with no addition of liquids, MICROPAST® is also suitable for sensitive ingredients – ideal for sauce-free recipes and for expanding the range of products.
