Server Dispensers for the Hershey's Can-to-pouch Transition
For decades, Hershey's syrup and fudge has been sold in traditional No. 10 cans that foodservice operators have depended on to top ice cream sundaes and hot fudge brownies. As of mid-2017, that tradition has come to an end, as the company has discontinued those 8-pound containers of syrup. Ice cream shop operators and dessert enthusiasts need not worry: Your syrup and fudge pumps are in no danger of running dry. The Pennsylvania purveyor of chocolate has begun producing restaurant-sized pouches of their syrups, and Server Products has the equipment to make the transition from can to pouch a smooth one.
Why the Change?
The Hershey's transition from No. 10 cans to plastic pouches brings several benefits. Pouch dispensers can evacuate 98 percent of the product from the container, which is much more than traditional can pumps are capable of dispensing. This improved rate cuts down on product waste and is likely to save operators significant amounts of money in the long run. Pouch containers are much easier on the environment, as well, since they create 97 percent less waste than No. 10 cans.
Pouches also provide improved sanitation. The product remains in the sealed, airtight pouch where it is protected from contamination and premature product degradation, helping you provide fresh product with every serving dispensed.
Server EZ Topper Pouch Dispenser
Server EZ Toppers are designed to dispense pouched product from Hershey's and other food vendors. These dispensers deliver precise portion-controlled servings with each pump. The equipment can be adjusted in 1⁄8-ounce increments up to 1 ounce to help staff members deliver consistent servings. The following table will help you compare Server EZ Toppers.
