Tittle:
Automatic dispenser for pick and mix candy
Summary:
A Swedish SME has developed a semiautomatic dispenser system for the sale of pick and mix candy and confectionery. The patented system admits the consumer, with a simple press on a button, to dispense singular pieces of candy in a hygienic and safe way. The company wants a partner in Spain with experience in the confectionery business in retail and service stores. The partner should be interested in a commercial or license agreement.
Description:
A Swedish SME in southern Sweden develops and sells semi-automatic store solutions for pick and mix handling of candy. After finishing a trial period in about 50 well established grocery stores around Europe, the company is now proceeding from a development phase to a launch and expansion phase.

The company has developed a technology where customers with keystrokes feed the desired amount of candy from a dispenser system. The technology consists of a storage box provided with a patented screw device and a module adapted dispenser which is controlled by a push button. The button and the discharge funnel is the only thing that the consumer comes in contact with.

The system is developed for pick and mix candy up to a size of approximately 40-50 mm (some limitation for oddly shaped products may appear), and the aim is to dispense the exact amount of candy pieces that the consumer requires. The simple pushbutton makes the dispense operation easy and fun - an action that increases sales volume.

The system is constructed of single box units assembled in modules of 4x 5, the modules can be joined together into larger units to fit in the store. Each system require one cord for power supply.The system is constructed so that each box can be refilled by store personnel or maintenance service.

The system is constructed so that the front face of the boxes are subject to exposure of either the candy/ product or the brand of the manufacturer.

The dispenser system can also be used for natural sweets, nuts and nut products.

The company is now searching for partners in Spain that are interested in commercial agreements or license agreements who are active in the retail and service sector in the confectionary area. The partner should be interested in finding new ways to increase sales.
Advantages and Innovations:
-High safety level from a hygiene perspective, (the consumer has no physical contact with the products, only visual)
- Freshness and shelflife extension since storage takes place in closed containers
-FIFO, first in first out in the box
-The push button feed gives an extraordinary customer experience
- Marketing potential since exposure of both product and manufacturer/brand on front face
-Easy to refill by store personal
-Module system, if one box needs service, it is just replaced with a new one, no cords or power connectors
-Useful for different types of products to be dispensed individually i.e. natural sweets, nuts and nut products
