International Dispensing Corporation Unveils New Disposable Beverage Carafe
HANOVER, MD (February 2005) - International Dispensing Corporation (IDC), (IDND.PK), manufacturer of innovative products for liquid bulk dispensing, proudly announces the commercialization of a new disposable beverage carafe for the liquid beverage market.
International Dispensing's new beverage carafe, originally created for the coffee market, carries 128 oz of hot or cold beverage, and is distributed in convenience stores, quick serve restaurants and other foodservice outlets where bulk dispensing is necessary. The carafe is composed of a sterile, flexible, biax nylon pouch attached to a rigid plastic frame, with corrugated side panels that attach to the plastic frame. The corrugated panels give retail outfits prime marketing and promotional opportunities on both side panels. Through rigorous testing, IDC has found that the shatterproof carafe not only keeps product insulated for three hours with minimal temperature change, it can also safely withstand trauma, such as being dropped. In addition, hands free filling allows customers to shop for other necessities or browse store aisles as they wait, possibly increasing the overall sale.
"Liquid bulk dispensing, THE concept of today, is rejuvenating and growing specialty coffee sales in such outlets as convenience stores, quick serve restaurants and grocery stores where customers are coming in for their daily coffee fix," says Gary Allanson, President and CEO of International Dispensing Corporation. "Consumers decide long before stepping foot into the store that they want to purchase these hot beverages. If the store is not equipped to handle the sale, these consumers will go elsewhere."
With retail prices between $9.99 and $12.99, consumer outlets can target a variety of audiences, including corporate and church functions, family picnics, students, construction crews and production sets. In addition, distribution has begun to catering outlets that serve such functions as hotels, golf events, large private parties and sporting events..
International Dispensing's new beverage carafe represents the best disposable packaging solution for the retail and catering markets versus other products available. A utility patent was granted to IDC by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office in April 2002.
International Dispensing, founded in 1995 and based in Hanover, MD, is a research and development company that develops and manufactures leading edge packaging and aseptic dispensing solutions for the foodservice industry. More information about the beverage carafe and the company's other products is available at the IDC Web site www.idcdispensing.com or by calling 410-761-0070.
