Hello all,


I am looking for some ideas on how other companies solve the issue of transferring liquid ingredients received in 4-5 gallon containers, to smaller, RTU portions.


We have >10 different liquid ingredients (from flavors to juice concentrates) which arrive in 4-5 gallon containers. They are square, round, pails, twist lids, pull lids, tear lids...you name it. We transfer the liquids from their original containers to smaller, daily, single use portions (1/2 to 1 gallons) for multiple operators to use. Of course, we experience splashing and lots of grunts from man-handling the containers.


I would like to find some options to reduce the amount of man-handling and splashing by gathering information on how other companies handle these same types of ingredients. Options which have been discussed so far are slim: a.) purchase in larger quantities and use an electric pump; b.) find a small electric pump c.) find a cradle the container can rest in and tilt to pour.


All ideas along with their pros/cons are much appreciated!

I'll be very interested to hear ideas too- we too have flavors and food colours , we don't decant them but pour direct in to hopper with two staff.  I guess we have less Grunts - as you describe - but i do worry about the safety with this procedure so any ideas I would also welcome!
