The Gepack Dual Flow Spout and Bottles for Edible OilsMany a household chef has encountered the following problem – in order to save a bit of time while cooking several dishes at once, an oil cruet is grabbed in order to dress a salad but is found to be empty . So, rather than waste time refilling the cruet, these intrepid culinary masters decide to pour the oil straight out of the bottle , as delicately possible. Nine times out of ten, the result is a salad that´s been ruined by a deluge of oil . Gepack has engineered a solution and it´s a pretty simple one. The folks there have created a dispensing spout for their sturdy PET oil bottles, creating an ensemble that features two different flow rates. Hold the bottle in one direction, and you get a plentiful stream that´s perfect for coating the bottom of a fry pan or measuring out a quantity for a recipe . Turn the bottle 180º, and you´ve got a very light flow for dressing a salad or drizzling a few drops on some canapés. No fuss, no mess, no swapping out or refilling containers, and no drowned greens. Most folks, however, don´t buy good olive oil in thin, crunchy, plastic bottles, they buy it in cool-looking, cosmopolitan designer bottles. Oil producers can now switch to PET, because Gepack´s bottles are tough enough to handle glass line fill pressures and speeds, while still being light, inexpensive, and shatterproof. Best of all, consumers won´t shy away from them: Gepacks´s PET bottles are weighted and coloured just like their glass analogues and provide a heft and feel that’s as close to glass as you can get in plastic, and they don’t look horrible on the dinner table . Further, the full solution (meaning the bottle, the tamper evident seal, the cap, and the spout) is 100% recyclable, making it easy for the consumer to discard. All in all, Gepack’s new spouts and the bottles they’re housed in make daily life just a little bit easier while respecting the need to be more eco-sensitive – and that´s what innovative packaging should be all about.
