RP & Associates Exhibits at the Hawaii Foodservice Expo

RP & Associates were among the exhibitors at the Hawaii Lodging, Hospitality & Foodservice Expo (July 11th & 12th) with the BOOTH #1005 and the main reason was our brand new product that has been taking off in the states, especially in chains such as 7-Eleven and Love's.

Glacier Bags are fully customizable and are the perfect solution for your customers to take ice cold drinks to the beach, hotels or anywhere else; they will make your customers' bottled or canned beverages ice cold within just 15 minutes (take a look at the video below). They are also an efficient replacement to traditional coolers, because we can fit more in a box and they use less shelf space. Styrofoam coolers are also being banned around the country, making the Glacier Bag the perfect solution.

Aside from the Glacier Bag we also exhibited many other new and unique products such as the Eternal Rose Glass that not only embodies the real shape of a rose modified into a drinking vessel, but has petals inside which heighten the other senses of the drink, engaging your customer that much more.

The newest article surrounding the great success of the Chill Indiana Glacier Bags comes to us from the The Times Media Co. who are the news and information leader in Northwest Indiana and it reads:

Necessity is the mother of invention, and sometimes that necessity is a state law opposed by 70 percent of residents.

Indiana convenience stores are rolling out "Chill Indiana Glacier Bags," or reusable plastic bags people can put beer into and then fill with ice from the fountain machine in order to cool the beer in about 15 minutes, keeping it cold for hours if not consumed or transferred to a refrigerator by then.

More than 160 retailers across the state are now selling the bags, which are made in California and have a suggested retail price of $6.99. No Region convenience stores are yet listed as carrying the beer-chilling bags, but promoters encourage customers to ask stores to stock the product.

“If customers want to buy cold beverages, such as water or soda, the bags will keep that beverage cold," said Scot Imus, executive director of the Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores Association. "Conversely, if the customer buys a product that stores are forced to sell warm, such as beer, the product will be cold by the time that customer reaches their destination.”

It's the latest volley in the ongoing conflict in the statehouse between the liquor store lobby and the convenience store lobby over cold beer sales, which are only allowed at liquor stores under current state law.

Liquor store operators long have argued it should only be allowed in their stores because they have to pay more for licenses and their clerks get more training in how to prevent sales to underage minors. Convenience stores have contended that consumers should be allowed more choice, and that the policy gives liquor stores an unfair competitive advantage over them and grocery stores.

“This should not be viewed as a solution to our cold beer fight, as that battle continues," Imus said. "There remains no public policy reason to allow liquor stores to sell cold beer but deny that right to grocery and convenience stores. This innovative approach does not run afoul of the cold beer prohibition because the customer will be chilling the beer after the point of purchase."
