SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On November 24th, The Döhler Group and International Dispensing Corporation (IDC) (IDND) hosted a visit to Döhler’s Asia-Pacific headquarters in Shanghai by President Gu Zhenhua and Secretary General Jiang Peizhen of the Shanghai Food Safety Federation.
The Federation is a liaison organization between Shanghai’s Food & Drug Administration and the country's food and beverage companies. Accompanied by Roman Kupper, President of Döhler Asia Pacific, and Li Xin, IDC’s Industry Advisory Board member, the visitors toured Döhler's R&D center and production line of Not-From-Concentrate (NFC) bag-in-box (BIB) juices equipped with IDC’s The Answer® aseptic tap.
In its widely circulated newsletter issued after the visit, the Shanghai Food Safety Federation declared that the Döhler NFC juice offering addressed “the healthy and natural trends in China” and that “The Answer® allows for safe dispensing of aseptic beverages at ambient temperatures while maintaining the sterility of the remaining contents for weeks.” In addition, the newsletter forecasted that, “… with China’s improvement of standard of living and consumer desire for better nutrition, demand [for the NFC product line]... would increase rapidly.”
Döhler has been successfully running its NFC BIB product line with The Answer® for over a year. Products include orange, apple, and mango juices, as well as coconut water.
The visit by Shanghai Food Safety Federation demonstrated the Federation's influential efforts in collaborating with industry, as well as Döhler's commitment to the China market through continued investment and innovation.
