Smart DispenserThe Smart Dispenser from SIG Combibloc and Server Products is easy to use and allows precise dispensing of products such as flavored syrups or base mixes for smoothies and cocktails with every stroke. The use of the dispenser makes it easier and cost effective for restaurants to innovate their menus by offering new beverage creations.

 

The dispenser consists of a lidded box into which the carton pack is placed inside. Then the pump is inserted directly through the overcoated hole, opening the package. With a simple pump action, the product is dispensed in precise amounts, with no mess. The product is safely and hygienically protected—there is no need to transfer the product into another container. The dispenser yields up to 98 percent product evacuation to minimize waste.

 

The beverage category is the initial focus for the Smart Dispenser. The dispensing unit has been developed for use with products that are used in cafes, coffee shops, bars, bistros and fast-food restaurants, such as fruit purées, smoothie bases and cocktail preparations, flavored syrups and concentrates.

DRY Soda sleek can

 

As consumers continue to demand real ingredients in their beverages and seek out all-natural and lower sugar soda options, DRY Soda is making its unique sodas more accessible to customers by offering it in Rexam 12-oz. SLEEK cans. DRY Soda also introduces two new flavors this summer: Apple DRY and Ginger DRY.

DRY Soda’s launch of sleek cans and introduction of new flavors means that DRY customers can enjoy DRY in more places—on the go, poolside, cocktails, lunches and entertaining at home. In addition to the Apple and Ginger, DRY will also offer three current flavors in cans: Vanilla Bean, Blood Orange, and Cucumber DRY. 

Originally introduced in 12-oz. glass bottles, DRY Soda has chosen to expand into the Rexam SLEEK can because of its durability and portability. DRY Soda also supports the use of aluminum cans as they are the most sustainable packaging choice in the world, and are recycled at more than double the rate of any other beverage package. 

In 2005, well before low sugar products were part of the national conversation, DRY Soda CEO and Founder Sharelle Klaus saw the need for a less sweet, all-natural soda and created the first soda line with significantly less sugar and made with just four ingredients. DRY, the better for you soda, contains one-quarter to one-third of the sugar and calories of traditional sodas, and is only 45-70 calories per 12-oz. bottle/can.

“I developed DRY because I believe in offering a better low sugar soda option to consumers seeking healthier alternatives to traditional sodas and am thrilled that DRY cans will allow people to enjoy it anywhere, anytime and offer our customers the convenience of DRY on the go,” says DRY Soda CEO Sharelle Klaus. “DRY really stands out in the Rexam SLEEK cans and provides DRY Soda retailers more opportunities to offer DRY to their customers.”

 

Rich Grimley, president and CEO, Rexam BCNA, says the SLEEK can is the perfect choice to broaden consumer reach for DRY. “The SLEEK can provides a differentiation on retail shelves that helps build brands,” he said.

 

“Besides the appeal of the package with colorful graphics that enable brands to attract attention on retail shelves, beverage cans offer superior recycling, filling, distribution and display economics that just make good business sense.”

DRY Soda cans are available now throughout the U.S. in traditional and specialty retail stores, restaurants, cafes and online. The cans will be sold individually at retailers for $1.29.

Celebrate With Organic Wines and Cocktails

Celebrate With Organic Wines and Cocktails

Thanksgiving. Christmas. Hanukkah. Kwanzaa. New Years. Just reading the names of these holidays can stir up feelings of excitement, wonder and celebration. We get together with people we love and celebrate life. We eat and drink and talk about the year that was, the year that will be and our hopes for the future. And we give thanks for the many things we have been given.

Celebrations like these require special food and drink. We make huge dinners and surround ourselves with trays of sweets. We also make toasts with rich, full glasses of wine and sparkling, red studded cocktails.

This year, as more American’s have turned to green living practices, there are a growing number of products available to celebrate the holidays green too. Organic turkeys, locally grown produce, LED twinkle lights and other increasingly popular eco-friendly product are now at our disposal. And now, so are sustainable wines and spirits.

Sustainable wines and spirits include libations that have been made using organically grown grapes, environmentally-friendly business and/or farming practices, and recyclable packaging. For any green wine, liquor or beer, read the label to understand how the company is sustainable or do a little poking around online to find a label that you are comfortable with. Not all may follow the same guidelines as to what they constitute “sustainable”

Green Spirits

A number of distilleries are now developing green spirits. International distilleries like Reyka Vodka are creating their product using the renewable geothermal energy that exists under Iceland. Others like Square One Organic Vodka are using organically grown products as the base for their liquor. The company uses organic rye and spring water produced in the Midwest United States and gets 25% of its distillery’s energy from wind farms. For tequila fans, there is only one USDA-certified organic tequila available. The 4Copas from Mexico is made using no pesticides or growth hormones and is packaged using recycled paper.

These cocktails are popping up more and more at local restaurants and bars and may be a perfect addition to a company holiday party. When possible, ask about local distillers in your area that may have an eco-friendly vodka or tequila you can add to your cocktail list.

Sustainable Wines

Wine makers were early pioneers of organics in the United States. Many wineries are turning to sustainable farming and cultivating practices to make high-quality red and white organic wines. Oregon organic wines like the Eco-Wine from Amity Vineyard have no detectable sulfites. Others like the wines made in California’s Beckmen Vineyards or Gypsy Canyon Winery are biodynamic, meaning that they were farmed using an all-natural system of farming, without chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. They also use the farms own resources to maintain and sustain the crop. The strength in these wines is that the makers have figured out sustainable practices they can follow that still produce incredible, unique wines. With a table full of fresh sweet potatoes, carrots and home-made stuffing, a bold glass of an organic wine is an excellent way to toast to the many things we should be thankful for.

~Ben Anton, 2008

This year, GreenSceneUSA encourages you to celebrate with eco-friendly holiday products like the local organic wines discussed in this article.
