Universal Pasteurization Announces Acquisition Of Assets Of HPP Services Provider, Global Leading Foods

Acquisition Provides key Southwest Location as Part of UPC's Expansion Strategy

LINCOLN, Neb., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Pasteurization Company, the industry leader in outsourced High Pressure Processing (HPP) services, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, UPC Texas, LLC, has acquired the assets of Global Leading Foods (GL Foods), a Coppell, Texas-based premier supplier of High Pressure Processing (HPP) services. The facility will provide additional HPP capacity for both current and prospective customers, and its location is strategic to Universal's geographic expansion plans to better serve the growing market for HPP outsourcing. The new location will join Universal's other HPP outsourcing facilities in Lincoln, NE and Villa Rica, GA.

We are extremely pleased to be able to add a Dallas-area location to our HPP service footprint," stated Jeff Barnard, Universal's President.  "Dallas is a center of food manufacturing activity as well as a prime distribution hub."  He further stated: "HPP offers substantial benefits to processors, retailers and consumers alike, however the equipment acquisition costs and batch operational challenges make its implementation a challenge for many.  Through our outsourcing approach we remove these barriers by offering a usage-based model while providing redundancy both of HPP equipment and HPP facilities.  We also offer flexibility through many value-added services.  This offers all companies, both large and small, access to this sophisticated technology."

The new Dallas-area location is an excellent fit for the company," said Curt Roberts, Universal's Chief Operating Officer.  "It has the same HPP system technology that is incorporated into the rest of our network and the team has the same customer-driven, do-what-it-takes culture that Universal is known for.  Our plans are to add certifications to the facility such as SQF Level 3, install AccellosOne Warehouse Management System (WMS) and implement additional value-added services. This will serve to increase our value proposition to existing customers while helping us attract new customers to HPP outsourcing."

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
