US-based company Worldwide Dispensers has unveiled a new dispensing tap for Bag-in-Box edible oil.
According to the company, VINIflow for edible oil ensures a smooth pouring flow and has been adapted to oil viscosity, allowing a direct serving from Bag-in-Box packaging.
An extension of the VINIflow tap, the latest dispensing tap, which is aimed at providing a good pouring experience to food professionals and households.
The previous edition of the VINIflow tap was developed by Worldwide Dispensers for various Bag-in-Box product applications such as wine, juice, dairy and water.
As a self-closing pull-tap, the VINIflow dispensing tap for edible oil contains levers that allow the product to be dispensed using just one hand.
A special element within the outlet of the VINIflow oil dispensing tap assists in making oil flow more directional and consistent, ensuring an optimised flow rate, drip-free pouring and sealed storage.
The tap also decreases oxygen permeability to as little as 0.1cc/pack/24hrs.
Bag-in-Box can be used as a package for all types of edible oil as it offers advantages in terms of oxygen and light barriers, as well as investment costs and logistics.
It is becoming increasingly popular in Europe as more countries introduce obligations to use anti-refilling oil packages in the foodservice industry.
Worldwide Dispensers affiliate Rapak produces special oil barrier films for Bag-in-Box packaging, which aim to protect the product from oxidisation.
The specialised film also prevents contaminant migration while maintaining flavour quality and extending the oil’s freshness for up to 12 months.
