Award for foodservice condiment packaging and dispensing system
The Cryovac FlexPrep dispensing system, which delivers portion-control and improved food safety to the application of condiments, has been awarded the 2018 Kitchen Innovations (KI) Award presented by the National Restaurant Association, Hotel-Motel Show in the US.
The Cryovac FlexPrep system changes the way back-of-house condiments and sauces are packaged and dispensed, changing out paperboard or other rigid canisters for flexible pouches. Pre-filled Cryovac FlexPrep pouches are inserted into a proprietary dispensing unit with ergonomic handles and a clear plastic cylinder that allows up to 98% evacuation.
From a food safety perspective, the contents of a Cryovac FlexPrep pouch are hermetically sealed with no headspace in Cryovac oxygen barrier film and do not come in contact with human hands, cutting tools or other utensils during kitchen operations.
When compared to current foodservice condiment packaging options, the dispensing system delivers improved portion control and food safety, better optimised shipping cost and better utilisation of storage space, as well as decreased packaging and condiment waste.
