Scholle IPN flexible packaging for smoothiesConsumers are drinking more than just fountain drinks when they are out eating. Current trends indicate consumption of specialty drinks including smoothies is on the rise.

  • Functional smoothies showed 38% growth from 2008 to 2011¹
  • The world market for smoothies is projected to touch $9 billion by the year 2015²

Let’s take a look at how Scholle IPN played an essential role in the availability of fresh smoothies in the food service industry.

How has Scholle helped revolutionize the way smoothies are bought and sold?
Through strong partnerships with our customers, Scholle IPN developed a safe, reliable dispensing fitment for the fast-paced, clean environment that is critical to successful quick serve restaurant operations. Our partnership with liquid product suppliers and dispensing equipment companies allowed the Scholle IPN QuickSeal Sentry SafeLock™ to be developed in order for the foodservice industry to offer consistently-produced, fresh smoothies that meet the consumer’s growing demands.

How have Scholle IPN’s products and innovation improved foodservice process?
Three things come to mind; versatility, convenience and efficiency.  First, the bag’s ability to be filled under multiple filling conditions including shelf stable, ESL and low-and high-acid aseptic, means dispensing systems can use the same fitment type and bag-in-box packaging, regardless of product.  Versatility leads to convenience since the engineering behind Scholle IPN’s fitment ensures error-free operations; employees can’t incorrectly lock a fitment into a wrong groove within the dispensing equipment. This feature reduces a need to have employees trained on several types of bags and eliminates confusion when it comes to different connectors regardless of their filling process, ultimately leading to better efficiency.

What can a customer expect to change when they implement the Scholle IPN QuickSeal Sentry SafeLock™?
The Scholle IPN QuickSeal Sentry SafeLock™ provides several enhancements which will improve efficiency in operations.

  • Ease of use minimizes employee effort
  • Improved safety with leak-free bag removal during change-out or cleaning operations
  • Simplify operations by standardizing on bag and fitment
  • Accurate dispensing reduces product waste
  • Increased speed of service which improves customer satisfaction
  • Consistency of product delivery leads to an increase in customer satisfaction and operation efficiency

What problems can foodservice customers avoid when they connect their dispensing system with Scholle IPN QuickSeal Sentry SafeLock™ and Scholle bag-in-box packaging?
Our customers have been able to speed up operations with the easy-to-connect fitment by utilizing a traditional dispensing equipment one-half inch inlet tube.  Since the Scholle IPN QuickSeal Sentry SafeLock™ features the unique ability to reseal the value immediately upon removal, customers can be confident there will be no leaks when cleaning or shutting down the equipment, keeping work areas clean and safe and most importantly increasing productivity.
