Resumen:
Una pyme escocesa especializada en elaborar helados busca una nueva solución de envasado con el fin de transportar el producto por el Reino Unido a temperatura ambiente. El producto debe mantenerse congelado durante 48 horas a temperatura ambiente. El fabricante ha realizado pruebas con cajas de poliestireno que incorporan un compartimento aislante interno, pero no ha encontrado la solución adecuada. La empresa busca un socio industrial que ofrezca o esté capacitado para desarrollar la solución. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación o comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Packaging to allow ambient transportation of frozen ice cream
Summary:
A Scottish SME which manufactures ice cream is looking for an innovative packaging solution which would enable its product to be transported across the UK at ambient temperature. The product would require to retain its frozen state after 48 hours at ambient temperature.
They are seeking an industrial partner who may have, or be able to develop, a suitable solution for collaboration through a commercial agreement with technical assistance or a technical co-operation agreement.
Description:
A small Scottish ice cream manufacturer has been invited to have its product included alongside frozen meats in orders which are delivered across the UK by a Scottish based supplier of quality meat. As these orders are delivered directly to consumers, it is not always possible for them to be delivered directly into a freezer. All products therefore require to be packaged in such a way that they can remain in a frozen state for up to 48 hours.

The ice cream manufacturer has carried out trials using polystyrene transportation boxes lined with a separate internal insulation box which they have designed themselves, but they have not yet found an acceptable solution.

They are seeking industrial partners with expertise in frozen foods packaging who may be able to offer a ready made solution which can be adapted for this specific requirement through a commercial agreement with technical assistance or who may be able to assist them in developing packaging which meets their requirements through a technical co-operation agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The company has run some preliminary trials using the polystyrene transport boxes used successfully for the frozen meat deliveries. They added a prototype internal compartment system made from insulation material and designed to insulate each 125 ml tub separately. The ice cream was packed at -25°C and the packaging had been placed in the freezer in advance. However, after 48 hours the product had reached an unsatisfactory temperature of 5°C. (The butcher concerned packed his goods at -40°C with dry ice, but the ice cream manufacturer does not have the equipment and facilities to do this).

They are now looking for collaborative partners who may be able to offer a packaging technology which would significantly improve these result and enable the product to remain in it´s frozen state for 48 hours.
