    Presentation Title:

    Has your drink lost its fizz?

    Presentation Synopsis:

    CO2 loss” is a problem that has plagued the carbonated drinks market for years. As much as 40% of CO2 is lost from a CSD by the time a consumer takes their first sip. This happens for various reasons – shelf life, packaging, filling methods, ingredients. As a result, CSD brands and producers are looking at new ways to keep the fizz in their drinks for longer – to keep consumers happy and give them more of the taste they expect from their carbonated soft drinks. So how does this relate to sustainability? “CO2 retention” can help to improve a brand’s carbon footprint by reducing the amount of rejects and therefore waste and plastic that goes to landfill; it enables CSD brands to export their drinks further afield to overseas markets; and reduces the amount of energy and water consumed during the filling process. Jonathan Stott will discuss the topic of carbonation retention in CSDs, and how “co2 solubilisation” can improve shelf life and consumer enjoyment – whilst increasing production efficiency and profitability longer-term.
