We know our customers want a greater selection of foods made with wholesome, natural ingredients and this is why we took great care and time to develop a chicken deli meat that truly delivers this.  Even better is the fact that these products are gluten free and taste absolutely delicious", said Luana Guglielmi, Head of Marketing, May Family Farms. "We are creating healthy deli options that Canadians can trust and enjoy."

High Pressure Protection (HPP)
As industry leaders, May Family Farms uses High Pressure Protection™ technology as the final step in the production of all May Family Farms deli products. It's a revolutionary process in which foods are exposed to extraordinary pressures to disable pathogens.  Foods being processed with this technology are loaded into a water filled vessel and pressurized to 87,000 psi and are maintained that way for three minutes. This intense pressure disables virtually any potentially existing spoilage organism or illness-causing bacteria found within the product and package – not just on the surface. And most importantly it does all this using no chemicals. As an added benefit, foods processed using this technology remain unaltered in any way – flavour, texture and nutrients are retained and food tastes fresh longer.
