German mustard producer Mari-Senf has introduced a new mustard dispensing system for street food kiosks.
The new easy-to-serve Bag-in-Box system will enable the street vendors to serve mustard as a spread over local Bavarian meats and sausages. The system offers compact, tidy and easy-to-use packaging.
Designed by DS Smith Plastics (UK) unit Rapak and Swedish firm Asept, the new mustard dispensing system is developed to reduce serving and clean-up time at street food joints.
Mari-Senf used to deliver its flavoured mustard range in small glass jars. The introduction of the Bag-in-Box mustard pump will enable it to cater to the foodservice market.
The dispensing system features a 2.5l flexible bag inserted in a reusable plastic container and features a pump. It is equipped with a Rapak-made tamper-evident adapter, which connects the bag to the pump.
It is said to use less plastic compared to other similar alternatives.
Rapak regional sales director Edgar Buren said: “The solution provided by Asept and Rapak has huge plastic waste reduction potential.
“It eliminates the use of single-use sachets that are at risk of ending up as pollution in the environment or the seas due to littering or poor waste management.
“It is a major opportunity for sauce producers and fast food restaurants to make their packaging more sustainable.”
The product offers extended mustard freshness once opened, better food safety as well as faster filling and cleaning compared to other sachets.
