June is National Iced Tea Month and what could be more refreshing on a hot summer day than a glass of iced tea? With more and more health-conscious consumers turning towards better-for-you beverages like tea, dine-in restaurants, quick service restaurants (QSR) and convenience stores need to ensure their tea offerings are fresh and safe to drink with Rapak Urn-liners.
According to the Tea Association of the U.S.A Inc., tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water and approximately 80% of tea consumed in America is iced. In 2017, Americans consumed over 84 billion servings of tea, or more than 3.8 billion gallons. That’s a lot of tea so why risk great quality and fresh taste?
One Urn-liner each day will not only provide a fresh tasting, quality product for a memorable customer experience, but will also provide operational improvements in your beverage dispensing. An Urn-liner is a plastic clear liner that goes inside the beverage urn with a tube that feeds through the dispenser. By using Urn-liners, the tea product is never in contact with the urn or spigot providing a fresh tasting product free from cross contaminants such as cleaning chemical residue, microbial contamination from lack of cleaning and flavor transfer from the metal urn to your iced beverage.
Urn-liners are easy to install and use with a changeover process taking less than one minute. They eliminate the need for time-consuming urn sanitation and disassembly and reassembly of the spigot.
