Post Mix: The key to reducing the beverage sector's plastic footprint

February, 16 2022

Did you know that humans produce nearly 20,000 plastic bottles every second? How can you, on a daily basis, start to put an end to this global problem?

The figures are alarming:


Humans produce almost 20,000 plastic bottles every second

3600 seconds per hour x 20,000 plastic bottles per second =

 72 000 000 bottles per hour

Did you know that one bottle takes about 450 years to degrade and there are hundreds of millions of tons of plastic waste in our seas right now?

Between 5m and 13m tones of plastic leaks into the world’s oceans each year to be ingested by sea birds, fish and other organisms, and by 2050 the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish, according to research by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

The question now is how the beverage sector, the main cause of this problem, may help to reduce the carbon footprint.

How you and your venue, on a day-to-day basis, could start to put an end to this world-class problem?

Ask yourself this simple question:


Why manage thousands of hundreds of bottles when you can produce the same tasty soda straight out of your tower at your venue?


The answer to this question is called: The Post Mix Solution.

Why choosing Post mix?


1. Increase margins

Reduce your purchase prices to increase your margins by distributing a wide range of flat and gaseous quality products.


2. Efficiency & Productivity

The Bag-in-the-box format of 10L of syrups mixed with tap water allows you to produce an average of 65L of finished products to your taste. This system is easy to connect and replace and allows you to save more than 80% of storage in your refrigerators and reserves.


3. Ecological commitment

Replacing the bottles with Post mix allows you to reduce CO2 emissions. It is also 100% recyclable packaging unlike bottles.


Hospitality managers and restaurant owners love post mix systems because they’re economical.

The post mix solutions guarantee less waste because customers are getting drinks from a few soda guns rather than hundreds of bottles.

This benefits the environment because less plastic and glass from used drink bottles goes into the bin.

The establishment gets some good out of it too. They’re reducing the amount of waste, both garbage and product-wise, and are using more product for less cost.

Staff are also spending less time hauling soft drink bottles from storage because the drink is available, literally, at the push of a button. They can serve thirsty customers rapidly and make several drinks at once.

The hospitality industry loves post mix for a number of reasons. The syrups come in concentrated form, so the staff can draw more drinks from the soda gun for less, and there’s less waste because the drinks come from an integrated system, saving money and time.
