Container filling system for counter and shelf displays
GEA has introduced a container filling system as an option for the GEA Aquarius BunchWrapper and TwistWrapper lollipop wrapping machines.
Containers and boxes are great ways to transport and store lollipops. Transparent containers are ideal for display on counters and shelves in retail outlets. The lollipops remain visible in the container, and the lids can be used to draw extra attention to the lollipops.
Retailers value this type of container double as a counter or shelf display. It also increases in-store attention to attract more potential customers. The GEA Aquarius container filling system fills the containers (and boxes) directly from the GEA Aquarius BunchWrapper or TwistWrapper machines at speeds of up to 800 lollipops per minute.
“Getting extra in-store attention is a priority for confectionery manufacturers, particularly in the mature lollipop segment. Using this type of container in combination with GEA innovations like label-on-stick, can really make display lollipops stand out,” says Angelique van der Rijken, GEA’s product manager for lollipop manufacturing machines. The lollipop container filling system can also be retro-fitted to existing GEA wrapping machines.
