With the sale of two large scale systems into the Australian almond market, H2O Express™ becomes the world leading vacuum/steam technology for pasteurizing almonds and other nuts. More than 100,000,000 lbs of nuts are pasteurized annually using Cosmed Group, Inc.’s (Cosmed) patented technology domestically at six facilities across the U.S. These new chambers represent a significant increase in capacity and brings the technology to an international market.

Cosmed’s organic pasteurization system treats product in its final packaging to ensure that product safety is maintained through delivery. In line pasteurization processes require handling and repackaging downstream from the critical control which creates risk of recontamination. Pasteurizing product using H2O Express™ in its package minimizes that risk. This feature was important in the selection process for both of our new customers.
