Description

As a business, we are continually striving to enhance the experience associated with consuming our beverages and their overall quality. 

 

Background

Carbonation plays an important role within our portfolio and plays a key role in the enjoyment of a drink. Ways of enhancing or optimising carbonation and technologies that can provide stable carbonation throughout the shelf-life of the product are sought. 

 

Key success Criteria
  • Proven or evidenced solutions: basic technology has been tested in a simulated environment (needs to be a sugar sweetened drink – at least 2% sugar)
  • Time to market: <3 years
Possible Approaches
  • Liquid; for example, alter the attributes of the liquid to improve carbon dioxide retention over shelf life, or technologies to quantify bubbles and their size distribution
  • Packaging; for example, packaging solutions that preserve carbon dioxide at similar cost to PET
  • Process; for example, blending, manufacturing or bottling processes that enhance or retain carbonation/CO2 solubilisation

 

Approaches not of Interest

Solutions not focused on improving carbonation
