Just Rewards

There are moments in life which we

like to think back on and remember

with fond thoughts. A lot of these

times we have given or received

awards for something special. I

have been fortunate to witness a lot

of joy recently, as individuals and

companies have successfully taken

part in competitions in different


One of these was as a sponsor of

the International Brewing Awards,

which we have been a part of for

some years now. The Awards have

been ongoing since 1886 and reward

innovation and excellence in beer

production. The judges are all active

professional brewers from around

the world and the winners are

chosen by consensus. This brings a

double reward, since the Trophy is a

vote by one’s peers.

Sometimes known as the “Oscars of

the Brewing Industry“, I’m not sure

who is more rewarded, the winner,

or myself by being able to utter the

wonderful words: “And the winner

is…“. I kept the golden envelope!

As a judge I have also been privileged

to take part other competitions. This

brings a feeling of responsibility, but

also gratitude for the participants

who have invested so much in

trying to make our food, beverages,

processes and packages better. I

have learned a lot by listening to true

professionals in food science and

asking how and why many times over.

All those who have taken part are

winners in my eyes. And the medal

and trophy winners have an added

reward and a responsibility.

A couple of week’s ago, I received an

email from a reader, who thanked me

for an article. Wow! She explained

how she usually flicks through the

magazines, but somehow stopped at

the headline, read the text and then

took the trouble to write. Double

wow. And THANK YOU. That’s even

better than flying home after a trade

fair and seeing someone on the plane

reading drinkworld.

Isn’t it great that we can be rewarded

for doing what we love to do? Every

reader who finds something helpful or

interesting in one of our magazines is

a boost to our team, so thanks to all of

you. You too deserve a reward at the

next Oscars.

Determining sugar concentration is one of the essential

steps in quality control in any soft drink plant, and this is

usually done with a density meter or refractometer. During an

instrument’s operating life, it might be exposed to conditions

that influence the quality of results, which makes regular

calibrations essential. Calibrating a density meter, however, is

easy. By calibrating the instrument, you know your measured

results are as accurate as they were onthe first day. Simply

put: the better the certified reference material, the better the

measurements. See page 24

Worldwide Brewers and Cider-Makers

Celebrate at Industry ‘Oscars’

Winners from across the world

have received their trophy for their

outstanding beers and ciders at the

world’s most historic international beer

and cider competition, the International

Brewing & Cider Awards.

The prestigious ceremony, held at the

Guildhall, London crowned 12 trophy

winners – nine beers and three ciders –

from around the world in their respective


They included Yorkshire’s Elvington

Brewery, which only started brewing in

2020, which scooped the International

Keg Leger Trophy for its Mittel Pils.

Tokyo-based Spring Valley Brewery’s

Juicy Hop won the Speciality Beer

Trophy, while Ise Kadoya Beer, also from

Japan, won the Strong Beer award for

its Nou ga Trokeru Ultra Heaven 3xIPA.

Malta-based Simonds Farsons Cisk won

the Non & Low Alcohol category for its

Cisk 0.0 and Jersey’s Liberation Brewing

Company received the Cask Conditioned

Ale trophy.

In the cider awards, Sheppy's Vintage

Cloudy Cider from Taunton-based

Sheppy's Cider, won The International

Classic Cider Trophy, while overseas

entries triumphed in the other two

Trophy categories. Sidewood Estate

from South Australia picked up The

International Flavoured Cider Trophy

for its Strawberry Apple Cider while

Ramborn Cider from Luxembourg won

The International Innovative Cider

Award for its Ramborn Ice Perry.

A three-day judging process to decide

the winners took place in November

2021 at the National Brewery Centre in

Burton-upon-Trent, UK and comprised

working professionals in the brewing

and cider making industries from across

the globe, led by Chair of Beer Judging,

Rob McCaig and Chair of Cider Judging,

Gabe Cook. The judges were chosen

to reflect the current expertise in the

tasting and commercial evaluation of

beers and ciders going into the market.

A total of 126 gold, silver and bronze

medal winners were also in attendance

to collect their awards at the luncheon.

Ruth Evans MBE, Director of the

International Brewing & Cider Awards,

said: “Despite being forced to postpone

the Awards due to the pandemic, we felt

it vital to hold the ceremony to publicly

recognize and reward the extraordinary

products that have emerged over the

past couple of years. Awards like these

are so important in raising a company’s

profile and help their beers and ciders

stand out from the crowd.

“We’ve crowned winners from all over the

world including Australia, China, Japan,

Luxembourg, South Korea, Taiwan,

Thailand, USA and the UK, and it’s

wonderful to see so many breweries and

cider-markers collecting their awards.

“The International Brewing and Cider

Awards are unique as we don’t just award

a bronze, silver and gold, we provide

every product entered the opportunity

to be assessed to a medal standard – and

award only the exceptional products. The

medals are not simply handed out, they

are earned.

“It’s been such an honor to host the

International Brewing and Cider Awards

and we hope all the winners gain the

recognition they deserve.”

The competition, which dates back to

1886, has a long history of championing

the world’s best brewers and cidermakers,

and the competition’s unique

approach to the judging process sets it

apart from other awards, earning it the

reputation as the ‘Oscars’ of the brewing

and cider world.

This time, new categories were announced

to reflect key trends that have emerged in

the beer and cider markets since the last

event in 2019. In the beer competition, a

No Longer Just Milk


In order to stay relevant with today’s

planet-conscious consumers, fluid milk

processors are investing in efforts to

make a range of sustainability claims,

everything from touting their happy

cows grazing on open pasture to carbon

neutral farm-to-home refrigerator

practices to improved recyclable

packaging efforts. In some instances,

whey, the byproduct of cheese and

yogurt making, is being upcycled into

alternative beverages. And, with some

products, the animal is no longer part of

the process. That’s right, there’s animalfree

milk now in the marketplace.

Perfect Day Inc., is a forerunner in the

animal-free dairy space. Founded in

2014 by bioengineers Ryan Pandya

and Perumal Gandhi, the company

is on a mission to create a kinder,

greener tomorrow using biology. The

company’s flagship product, the world’s

first precision fermentation protein,

debuted in 2020. Instead of relying on

cows, Perfect Day works with microflora

to create proprietary animal-free cow

whey protein. While delivering the same

taste and texture as conventional cow

whey protein, a third-party reviewed

life cycle assessment found that Perfect

Day’s whey protein reduces blue water

consumption by up to 99%, greenhouse

gas emissions by up to 97% and nonrenewable

energy use by up to 60%,

compared to conventional dairy milk

production methods.

The first beverage to use Perfect Day’s

proteins debuted in early 2022 by

betterland foods. Combined with a plantbased

recipe, the resulting consumer

product, betterland milk, is described

as being creamy, rich and performing

better than other plant-based milks,

while delivering the same cooking,

whipping, steaming, frothing and

baking functionality. The formulation

includes medium chain triglycerides and

sunflower oils and is said to have less

sugar than traditional cow’s milk with no

lactose or cholesterol. New betterland

milk comes in two varieties extra creamy

and whole varieties in 32-ounce shelfstable


More recently, Tomorrow Farms, a food

technology company on a mission to

fuel the sustainable food revolution

with irresistible food and beverage

brands, has launched Bored Cow, a line

of flavored animal-free dairy milks. The

brand is starting with three chocolate,

strawberry and vanilla options in singleserve

shelf-stable cartons. A fourth

“original” flavor will be available later

this year.

Bored Cow describes itself as containing

all the creaminess and goodness of

traditional dairy: 8 grams of complete

protein per cup, 0 grams of total sugars

per cup (compared to 22 grams in

conventional chocolate milk), as well

the calcium, potassium, vitamin D and

vitamin B12 consumers expect from

traditional dairy milk.

“We started Tomorrow Farms with a

belief that there’s a better way to make

our favorite foods,” said Ben Berman,

CEO. “We believe the Bored Cow brand

will be synonymous with this exciting

new category, offering an alternative to

cow’s milk and plant-based milks that

doesn’t compromise on taste, nutrition,

texture and, most importantly, the

future of our planet.”

This summer, Strive Nutrition Corp., will

launch a new line of value-added animalfree

milk products enriched with Perfect

Day’s ingredient. The lead product will

be Strive FREEMILK Whole. It offers 25%

more protein, 75% less sugar and less

saturated fat than regular whole cow’s

milk. There will also be a FREEMILK

Chocolate with less sugar and more

protein than regular chocolate dairy


Strive will also offer Strive Oat+Protein

and Strive Almond+Protein, both

enriched with 10 grams of Perfect Day

animal-free whey protein per serving.

That’s more than three times the level

of protein found in the leading oat

milk brand and 10 times more than the

leading almond milk. Unlike oat and

almond proteins, Perfect Day animalfree

whey protein is a “complete” protein

with all nine essential amino acids. Later

in 2022, Strive will introduce protein

shakes and sports hydration protein




“Our priority is to develop great tasting

‘wow’ products with clean ingredient

labels that deliver efficient nutrition

to the consumer and are good for

our planet’s future generations by

addressing climate change,” said Dennis

Cohlmia, co-founder at Strive Nutrition


Upcycling real whey

While animal-free whey protein is an

emerging ingredient segment, real

whey—the byproduct of cheesemaking

and strained yogurt production—is

finding new uses in atypical beverages.

Upcycling is all about reducing food

waste by taking overlooked ingredients

and creating delicious new foods and


That’s what the Spare Food Company is

doing with its first creation, which is an

effervescent drink called Spare Tonic. It

is made from whey plus only three other

ingredients: fruit, spice and a touch

of honey added as the fermentation

catalyst. The beverage consists of about

85% to 95% whey that would have

otherwise been discarded from the

production of strained yogurt. For every

one cup of strained yogurt produced,

two cups of whey are created. Because

whey is naturally acidic, it must be

neutralized before going into the waste

stream or it could wreak havoc on the

ecosystem. It is estimated that in New

York State alone, where 70% of strained

yogurt consumed in the U.S. is produced,

more than one billion pounds of whey is

created annually. Spare Tonic captures

what would have been the lost value of

this whey (nutritionally, economically

and environmentally) and crafts it into a


To source the whey, Spare Food

partnered with The White Moustache

in Brooklyn, which uses milk from

Hudson Valley, N.Y.-based dairy farms.

Since Spare Food started purchasing

the excess whey to make Spare Tonic,

The White Moustache has been able to

expand its yogurt production, which in

turn means they have been able to hire

more people and buy more milk from

these family dairy farms.

Spare Tonic naturally provides a good

source of protein, is rich in electrolytes

including calcium, magnesium and

potassium, and is an excellent source

of vitamins B6 and B12. It has a natural

3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio,

which makes it ideal as a post-workout

recovery beverage.

Spare Tonic is available in four flavors:

Blueberry & Ginger, Cucumber & Lime,

Lemon & Ginger and Peach & Turmeric.

The beverage comes in 12-ounce cans,

with one can containing 100 to 120


Wheyward Spirit is a new specialty

alcohol made with whey. During the

fermentation process, yeast converts

the sugar (lactose) from whey into

alcohol. This product is then distilled. No

lactose remains in the final product so

it is completely lactose free. The spirit

highlights whey’s naturally delicate

and creamy characteristics and has a

signature flavor of oaky vanilla cream

and warm spice notes, rounded by a

subtle pear aroma. It can be consumed

in the same manner as vodka.

Extra efforts for the planet

Clover Sonoma, a third-generation,

family-owned and operated dairy in

California, is taking a big step forward

in supporting a closed loop recycling

system to ensure that plastic is neither

created nor destroyed, but re-used for a

single purpose. Starting with 30% postconsumer

recycled (PCR) content on its

organic gallon milk line, the company

is committed to increasing the PCR

content and extending PCR content

use across all Clover Sonoma gallon

milk jugs by 2025. The first PCR milk

jugs were on shelf in the first quarter of

2022 with a designated logo to educate

consumers about the new packaging’s


“To reach our sustainability goals,

packaging innovation is a priority for us

as a company,” said Kristel Corson, chief

revenue officer. “Finding sustainable

solutions means taking risks and investing

in what’s best for the planet. We are

focused on improving our packaging

across product lines using reusable,

recyclable, renewable and environmentally

conscious resources. We encourage the

food industry to join us in this effort.”

Recycled plastic is less wasteful than

new plastic because new plastic mostly

comes from non-renewable fossil fuels

like petroleum, which are hard on the

environment. By contrast, recycled plastics

require no virgin petroleum to be sourced

and divert recycled materials from ending

up in a landfill, so they alleviate much of

the environmental burden.

The company also made the conscious

decision to reduce plastic waste by

saying “no” to plastic caps on paper milk

cartons. These cartons are now fully


In late 2021, Organic Meadow launched

North America’s first zero-carbon

milk carton. The Guelph, Ontariobased

farmer-owned co-operative

transitioned its 2-liter organic milk to a

carbon-neutral paperboard milk carton.

This sustainable package has proven

its success in select European markets,

according to the supplier.

Recognizable by its distinct brown

hue, this innovative and sustainable

package is made from natural and

unbleached paperboard, generates

27% fewer carbon dioxide emissions

and is 18% lighter compared to

traditional milk cartons. The remaining

carbon emissions are reduced to net

zero through verified protection carbon

offset programs.

Neutral Foods takes a different

approach in its sustainability efforts.

Founded in 2019 in Portland, Oregon,

with a mission to reduce the carbon

footprint of agriculture, the company

works with dairy farmers to implement

a number of strategies to drive down

the carbon emissions of milk. What

can’t be reduced is offset through the

purchase of carbon credits from U.S.

dairy farmers who turn cow emissions

into renewable energy. In late October

2021, the company raised $4 million

in financing from two venture capital

firms, bringing its total funding to more

than $4.8 million to date.

“We believe a large number of

consumers desire greater control

of their climate change purchasing

decisions,” said investor Carmichael

Roberts with Breakthrough Energy

Ventures. “Neutral’s availability is

an opportunity for consumers to

consciously choose climate aligned

products in their daily lives, and we’re

proud to support their mission to

reduce the carbon footprint of products

consumers know and love.”

“Neutral is a game-changer,” said

Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas

Mavericks, judge on Shark Tank and

investor. “Neutral works with farmers

to deploy on-farm carbon reduction

projects focused on compost, manure

management and feed changes. It’s a

unique solution that can feed us while

protecting us. It’s a program that I’m

proud to be part of.”

The capital raised will be used to

support national distribution, driving

awareness and trial of the brand, and to

make direct investments with farmers

on projects to reduce carbon emissions.

“Solutions to reduce agricultural

greenhouse gas emissions and increase

sequestration on agricultural lands

exist, but they’re expensive. We’re

giving farmers the capital they need to

adopt low- or no-emitting solutions,”

said Ann Radil, head of carbon reduction

at Neutral. “This year we’re investing

in family-owned farms in Oregon and

Washington, reducing greenhouse gas

emissions by changing what cows eat

and how nutrients are managed. Over

their lifetimes, these projects will avoid

more than 3,200 metric tons of carbon

dioxide equivalent from entering the

atmosphere. Next year we’re tripling

our investment in family-owned farms

across the U.S., funding tactics that

reduce operational emissions or

increase long-term carbon storage in

vegetation and soils.

Functional Ingredients: Reinvigorating the

Beverage Industry

As consumers look to address their health and wellbeing in ways previous generations have

not done so, they are becoming more aware of the ingredients within their diets. Not only are

consumers seeking to moderate and avoid dietary evils, but are also looking to boost their

intake of functional ingredients, which offer a health boost beyond basic nutrition. So, what

does this mean for the beverage industry and how can brands meet the ever-changing need

states of consumers in 2022?

Consumers across the globe turn to a

variety of non-alcoholic beverages on

a regular basis. However, the past six

months show that consumption habits

are changing. FMCG Gurus consumer

insights show that consumers are

making active attempts to reduce

their intake of drink categories that

are synonymous with sugar, whilst

increasing their intake of drinks

associated with the better-for-you

movement. This is highlighted as 38%

of consumers who drink cola state

that they have reduced their intake,

compared to 54% of consumers who

drink functional juice/water have

increased. Consumers have also

increased their consumption of, protein

drinks & vitamin instant beverages.

This shows that people are taking a

prevention-over-cure approach to

health and are actively looking to

boost their levels of wellbeing, even if

they deem themselves to be in good


Given that consumers are being more

attentive to the ingredients used in

beverages, it is no surprise that four

in ten people say that they regularly



check the nutritional labeling of

non-alcoholic drinks. When checking

nutritional labeling consumers would

like to see a number of different

claims. Firstly, consumers will look to

seek out the sugar content. Sugar is

still seen as the number one dietary

evil, as many consumers associate it

with health problems such as diabetes

and obesity. Although consumers will

look to reduce their sugar intake,

there is still an attitude vs behavior

gap as consumers can struggle with

the sensory appeal of low/no sugar

drinks. Secondly, consumers will

look to protein content. Protein is an

ingredient that has a significant health

halo, with a number of consumers

looking to increase their protein intake

due to its associations with boosting

general health.

Over the last two years, consumers

have become more conscious of

their health, due to the pandemic.

Consumers are not overly satisfied

with a number of health areas and are

questioning their diets and lifestyles.

As a result of this, consumers are

taking a proactive approach to

health and seeking out products with

functional health claims, even if they

do not feel that they are suffering

from specific symptoms. This means

that consumers want to see a variety

of functional claims across beverage

categories. Products that carry a

variety of claims and ingredients

will be of high appeal because of the

association with maximum efficacy.

FMCG Gurus consumer insights show

that 44% of global consumers find

immune boosting claims appealing.

Consumers also find high in vitamins

and probiotics claims highly appealing.

This is due to consumers wanting

to address their digestive health

and immune health, as consumers

recognize the link both have on their

overall health and wellbeing.

As consumers become more and more

conscious about their health, they will

look to seek out functional ingredients

that support this. This is something

that has had a direct impact on

beverage consumption habits. Active

ingredients that are associated with

a variety of benefits, such as protein

and vitamins and minerals, will appeal

to those looking to improve their

dietary habits, enabling beverages to

be positioned around being guilt-free

and conveniently nutritious.

Creating Colorful Beverages that Match up

to Modern Consumer Demands

Maartje Hendrickx, Market Development Manager at GNT Group, explains how Coloring Foods

can cater to today’s health-conscious consumers

All over the world, shoppers are

increasingly focused on their health and

wellbeing. A recent survey found that six

in ten global consumers say they have

become more conscious about their

health over the last two years. 1

As a result, demand for better-for-you

products is having a major impact on the

beverage industry. Four in ten shoppers

now say they regularly check the label

when buying non-alcoholic drinks. 2

An even higher proportion (60%) say

they find ‘natural’ and ‘non-GMO’ claims

appealing, with ‘sugar-free’ (58%), ‘less

sugar’ (53%), and ‘free from additives’

(52%) also proving highly popular. 3

The importance of color

Nonetheless, enjoyment remains crucial

to product success, so it is vital to

create drinks with sensory appeal – and

achieving the right color is essential.

Studies have shown that color influences

judgment of beverages’ flavor and

aroma, while the intensity of the shade

also has the ability to affect the intensity

of flavor perception. 4

However, many of the most commonly

used coloring ingredients are synthetic

or have chemical-sounding names,

which can have a significant impact on

products’ appeal. Artificial colors have

long been considered unacceptable

among health-conscious shoppers, and

63% of consumers worldwide say that

they are concerned about ingredients

that sound chemical. 5

EXBERRY® Coloring Foods can solve

this challenge. They are made from

edible, non-GMO fruit, vegetables

and plants using physical processing

methods such as chopping and boiling.

No chemical solvents are used. They are

also suitable for almost any beverage

application, offering hundreds of intense

shades while supporting clean and clear

label declarations.

For example, in the EU and various

other parts of the world, a red

EXBERRY® shade might be described

on the ingredient list as “Coloring

Food (concentrate of carrot and

blackcurrant)” or simply “concentrates

(carrot and blackcurrant).”

Sublime soft drinks

The possibilities with EXBERRY® are

endless. They can help manufacturers

World’s Best-Connected Brewer:

HEINEKEN’s Journey to Real-Time

Global Connectivity with Event-Driven

Integration at its Core

Chris Wolski

HEINEKEN is one of the largest brewers on the planet, with a brand that is

known around the globe. But in a fast-changing market and with constantly

evolving consumer demands, you need to be more than just big – you need

to be agile.

HEINEKEN recently rolled out its EverGreen global business strategy

designed to ensure it keeps up with shifting business requirements now

and into the future. Through the invaluable support of its IT organization,

HEINEKEN has its sights set on digitally transforming to becoming the

world’s best-connected brewer. Chris Wolski, Vice President at Solace, looks

at how HEINEKEN is using event-driven integration to realize this goal.

HEINEKEN is one of the largest brewers

on the planet, operating across 190

countries where its Heineken® beers

and ciders are sold. It is a household

brand for many with an excellent

reputation. But this is not enough

in the current market climate – the

company has recognized the need

to ensure resilience and adaptability

in its operations going forward. This

was what led to the formation of its

EverGreen strategy – a five-point

business-wide plan to drive superior

growth, fund that growth, raise the

bar on sustainability & responsibility,

become the best-connected brewer and

unlock the full potential of its people.

To underpin this strategy, HEINEKEN

turned to its Digital & Technology (D&T)

organization to help enable corporatewide

resilience and agility. The team

was challenged to integrate thousands

of business-critical applications

across payments, logistics, inventory

management, and more, while also

connecting dozens of separate

operating companies (OpCos), some

of which still relied on local or legacy

business systems. Finally, it needed to

connect across 350 global and local

brands in more than 190 countries – a

formidable task.

Solving bursty data flows means

smoother global operations

According to Guus Groeneweg,

HEINEKEN’s product owner for digital

integration, becoming the world’s bestconnected

brewer means “providing all

internal and external customers with

real-time access to data provided through

integration assets, and ensuring those

integration processes work effectively,

consistently, and without disruption.”

Enabling consistently fast, reliable, and

robust integration processes across

diverse business functions is not an

easy task for a company that frequently

sees data come in large bursts from

geographically dispersed sources. That

“bursty” data flow – driven by orders on

the back of a new beer brand launch, for

example – can overwhelm integration

platforms that rely on point-to-point

communication via synchronous APIs.

This can result in duplicate orders, lost

orders, lost revenue and ultimately,

unhappy customers.

To overcome these challenges and meet

its ambitious digital transformation

targets, HEINEKEN has adopted an eventdriven

approach to integration. In short,

it’s underpinning its legacy integration

and API management technologies

with a dynamic and robust event-driven

architecture layer that will deliver data

from external parties, prevent data loss,

mitigate system failures, and guarantee

business continuity in the case of cloud or

iPaaS outage.

Event-driven infrastructure

bolsters cloud-based D&T


Two years ago, HEINEKEN faced challenges

relating to the increasing volume of orders

it was receiving. This increase put pressure

on its cloud integration infrastructure,

sometimes resulting in duplicate and lost

orders. They needed a solution, and fast.

Event-driven integration was the answer.

By event enabling its integration platform,

HEINEKEN’s processes have become more

robust and reliable.

“Taking an event-driven approach has

increased efficiency in what data is

moved, and how this is done,” explains

Groeneweg. “In the past, HEINEKEN would

see hundreds or thousands of point-topoint

scenarios, but now they are being

leveraged with the 1-to-many integration

patterns, where an application only has to

produce an event (like an order of beer)

once, and any other applications in the

system (production, shipping, fulfillment,

inventory, payments, cloud data lake etc.)



can just subscribe to what they want to

receive, and get it when it’s published.”

“We are also leveraging event-driven

integration to increase the efficiency of

our application development process –

with an event broker in the mix, our app

teams can focus on designing great apps

and not worry about the messaging or

event streaming infrastructure,” continues


“Each and every capability of our digital

integration strategy is in place. We enable

all required integration patterns through

a limited set of integration platforms,

from interfaces between local systems in

Vietnam up to interfaces from global ERP

systems to local CRM systems. Now we

are focused on moving towards reusable

integration assets.

“That is really required, with some big

standardization programs we are now

deploying to more than 190 countries.

Moving away from 70+ different ERP

instances with different data models and

process definitions to a lean core with a

loosely coupled yet tightly integrated

architecture; from a large set of

fragmented solutions to modern cloudbased

platforms that optimize end to end

ways of working in specific area,” explains


Event-driven integration is the

glue that binds the end-to-end


For event-driven integration to work, the

whole process needs to work correctly

and efficiently; it’s what allows all the

processes and applications in the value

chain to communicate in real-time.

“Consider this chain of events – a large

supermarket chain in New Zealand

places an order through HEINEKEN’s

B2B portal, the order is processed in the

back-end with the payment information,

the beer is delivered, the packing lists

in the brewery have to roll out of the

label printer etc.,” Groeneweg explains.

“Each of these activities is supported by

multiple integrations between front- and

back-end. All these digital integrations are

developed, operated, and monitored by

the HEINEKEN global digital integration


As consumer habits shift,

business operations must adapt,

and fast

There has been a paradigm shift in

consumer expectation and power.

Today customer experience drives

differentiation. The need for real-time,

secure transactions anywhere within

the 190 countries in which HEINEKEN is

active has changed integration into an


HEINKEN’s event-driven digital

transformation has given the brewer a

competitive edge, enabling it to operate

smoothy around the world with excellent

experiences for customers, consumers,

suppliers, and employees. Further, it has

empowered the brewer to deploy scalable

“plug and play” solutions quickly and take

advantage of timely business insights at


Event-driven integration is now a core

strategic capability for HEINEKEN moving

forward. The company sees greater

use cases ahead, across IoT, analytics,

customer facing apps and more.

Real-time data as a service to all


HEINEKEN is looking to utilize its

capabilities to build seamless digital

interactions across the entire value chain,

and give all HEINEKEN software users,

both internal and external, the information

they need to make smart decisions.

“To achieve this, event-driven integration

must be used to deploy a global

observability solution that makes datadriven

insights available to operational

teams in real-time. This allows us to

instantly feed our business with the right

data, for the right consumer, with the

right application, at the time they need it,”

continues Groeneweg.

Event-driven integration

ultimately keeps EverGreen

business strategy on track

Like many large organizations with a

globally distributed supply chain, customer

base, workforce, and IT infrastructure,

HEINEKEN is on a digital transformation

journey to become a better-connected


Guided by the principles of its EverGreen

strategy, HEINEKEN is taking the bold and

progressive steps required to help them

keep pulse with every customer; quickly

adapt to new or evolving demands; and

stay one step ahead in this highly dynamic


With event-driven integration, this is

becoming a reality.

MaltProduction in Brazil: Green Field

Large-Scale Plant Delivers up to 800 Tons

per Day with new German Technology

The German Purity Law of 1516 already proves that the mixture of hops, malt, yeast and water

guarantees good taste and made beer famous worldwide. This is also the case in Brazil. This

is where one of the world's largest green field malt production plants is currently being built.

A cooperative made up of several companies, including Cooperativa Agrária, is relying here on

the technologies of plant manufacturer Zeppelin Systems, based on the know-how to supply

complete plants for malt production for more than one decade.


Brazilian beer consumption is growing

by 3.5 percent per year. Yet Brazilian

consumers already drink beer brewed

from 1,75 million tons of malt per year.

Until now, the country has imported

more than a half of the barley for malt

production from abroad. The rising

demand for beer and thus also for malt

and barley therefore requires not only

the country's own cultivation areas, but

also new plants that can convert the mass

of malt required. In addition, the drinking

behavior of consumers is changing, and

Malt drying in kilns with a capacity of 400 tons

they are increasingly preferring beer

varieties with one hundred percent

malt content. Therefore, in Brazil, the

cooperatives Agrária (Guarapuava),

Bom Jesus (Lapa), Capal (Arapoti),

Castrolanda (Castro), Coopagricola

(Ponta Grossa) and Frísia (Carambeí)

have joined forces to build the world's

largest malting plant ever built in a single

project: Maltaria Campos Gerais.

This plant is expected to produce between

700 and 800 tons of malt per day. This

corresponds to an annual production of

about 240,000 tons of malt and about

14 % of consumer demand. For Agrária,

this is the second Zeppelin plant of this

kind, but with much higher capacity.

The existing plant is reaching its limits

due to changing consumer behavior

and cannot be expanded because there

is no more free agricultural land in the

surrounding area. The Maltaria Campos

Gerais project is located in an area that

has an additional 100,000 hectares of

land available for barley cultivation.

Process technology from raw

material intake to uprooting

Agrária has already relied on the

renowned technologies of this plant

manufacturer for the first Zeppelin

plant. The quality of the components,

the overall concept, and the process

engineering design convinced the

company, so that they are now placing

an order for the large-scale plant

with the same supplier. The Maltaria

plant in Campos Gerais consists of

a steeping building with 24 steeping

tanks, two towers with five germination

boxes each and two kilns, as well as

peripheral equipment. To ensure the

high throughputs with consistently

high product quality from raw material

reception to uprooting, Zeppelin

Systems offers various solutions. For

example, the bucket elevator ensures

gentle, vertical conveying of the barley

into the flow weigher. The automatic

flow scales from Zeppelin Systems



enable precise weighing and the user

always has all parameters in view, so

that the exact amount of barley is fed

into the production process and the

steeping process can then begin. Here,

the barley is moistened until it begins to


Germination and kilning - high

quality and efficiency thanks to

sophisticated technologies

Germination is a fundamental process

step in every malting plant. The Maltaria

Campos Gerais plant has ten round

germination boxes distributed over

two 65-meter-high concrete towers,

each with a diameter of 30.5 meters

and a capacity of 400 tons of barley.

This Zeppelin technology ensures the

handling of large volumes, which is

elementary for Agrária, since the large

plant will produce malt 365 days a year.

In the germination plant, the barley is

continuously moistened by air flowing

through and ensuring that the barley

does not dry out.

In addition, there are two circular kilns

with a diameter of 40 meters and a

capacity of 400 tons of barley. The kilns

are located in adjacent buildings. When it

comes to roasting, Agrária relies on highperformance

equipment from Zeppelin

Systems - this makes it possible to

generate differentiated taste and visual

profiles and thus specifically influence

the character of the final product.

Between the two kilns, a heat recovery

The plant Maltaria Campos Gerais produces between 700 and 800 tons malt

system and automation solutions are

used to ensure an extremely efficient


All in all, the high quality of the

components and smooth running

of the individual process steps are

elementary for the Maltaria Campos

Gerais plant. This is because the

breweries have already planned

several large orders in Brazil, which

are currently ensuring full capacity

utilization of the plant.

Sustainable management

for environmentally friendly


In addition to efficiency and

profitability, sustainability is a high

priority at Agrária. For this reason,

the plant has heat exchangers

to recover the heat generated in

production. This achieves energy

savings up to 20 percent. In addition,

the technology used reduces water

consumption. Investing in the topic

of sustainability primarily generates

good partnerships internationally,

as the customers - large global

corporations - also place a strong

focus on this topic. Cooperativa

Agrária is listed with the Sustainable

Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI)

and ranked with 20% Gold and 80%

Silver level. SAI is committed to

building a sustainable agricultural

sector and emphasizes strong as well

as secure supply chains.

Preventing Dry Run and Cavitation:

Innovative Sensor to Protect Pumps

against Gas Bubbles

A new type of sensor efficiently

protects pumps against dry run and

cavitation. With PAD20, sensor expert

Baumer presents an intelligent solution

for varied applications and industries.

The principle is simple: The innovative

PAD20 analysis sensor will quickly and

reliably detect even tiniest bubbles of

air and gas in fluids. Thanks to the smart

sensor principle, it will immediately

report any individually adjustable limit

for gas inclusions being exceeded. The

signal can be used for pump shut down

or for reporting an alarm warning.

“The sensor also signals whether a

closed system is free of gas bubbles.

The digital IO-Link interface provides

valuable secondary data, for example

for condition monitoring: Customers can

track the amount of gas inclusions in the

system”, says Baumer Product Manager

Julian Budde.

building technology or water supply.

More target applications are monitoring

of cooling circuits and dry run prevention,

process monitoring and ensured process

reliability in terms of pump protection.

The sensor measuring principle is dcvalue

based detection (dc = dielectric

constant) of air and gas bubbles in

fluids with a minimum conductivity

of dc > 1.5. “Thanks to sophisticated

algorithms, PAD20 will recognize very

precisely any presence of the fluid

flow. Independent of the medium, the

sensor measures dc deviation and this

way provides maximum flexibility”,

explains Julian Budde. Two individually

defined switching ranges allow users

to optimally adjust the sensor to the

process requirements.

Early detection of gas bubbles in fluids

is effective pump protection. Cavitation

and dry run are constant risks in pump

operation and often entail high costs.

Bubbles of gas or air in the pumped

medium can damage the pump, causing

expensive malfunction and high

maintenance costs.

Illustration: Thanks to sophisticated algorithms, PAD20 will recognize very precisely any presence of

gas in the fluid flow.

Applications from brewery to

heating technology

PAD20 will prevent pumps from harmful

gas pockets for extended service life.

Thanks to precise detection early on,

the sensor also will reduce maintenance

effort and downtime. PAD20 can

increase overall plant effectiveness in

industrial and hygienic applications.

Little matter what's the medium's

consistency: PAD20 works reliable both

in fluids such as milk and in viscous

media like oil.

Choosing the Right Reference Material

for Calibration, Safeguard Precise Sugar

Dosage and Consistent Product Quality

For soft drink production, dosing the amount of sugar precisely and accurately is critical.

By doing so, soft drink producers can use raw materials more efficiently, ensure consistency

between batches and production sites, and conform with bottling license regulations. To get

accurate Brix results, though, analytical instruments need to stay calibrated and ready to go.


Determining sugar concentration is

one of the essential steps in quality

control in any soft drink plant, and this

is usually done with a density meter or

refractometer. During an instrument’s

operating life, it might be exposed to

conditions that influence the quality of

results, which makes regular calibrations

essential. Calibrating a density meter,

however, is easy. By calibrating the

instrument, you know your measured

results are as accurate as they were on

the first day. When selecting a suitable

reference liquid for calibration, there

are a few things to keep in mind. Simply

put: the better the certified reference

material, the better the measurements.

Why calibrate a density

meter that’s used for Brix


Density measurement is the basis for

determining the sugar content in syrup

Figure 1: Anton Paar density standards.

as well as in the finished product. Since

it lets soft drink producers accurately

control costly raw materials used, a

precise Brix determination saves them

a significant amount of money at the

end of the day. Precise quality control

lets them tighten accepted production

tolerances, and it ensures consistency

between single batches and between

production sites. By doing so, producers

can make sure consumers don’t taste

a difference from a bottle produced at

site A versus site B. Licensed bottlers

also benefit from Brix determination

by always having control over how they

conform to strict regulations that are

defined by a parent group.

DIY calibration or calibration by

an accredited lab – what’s best?

Regular calibration with a density

standard is the only way to ensure

measurement results are as accurate

as they were on the first day and are

traceable to national standards. Globally

accepted calibration certificates for

an analytical instrument are obtained

from a calibration lab that’s accredited

according to ISO 17025. The calibration

can either be done ex works or after a

certain period of time (either in the lab

or on-site at the beverage production

plant). That said, regular calibrations

for safeguarding a factory’s production

quality should be conducted throughout

the year as well.

Criteria for selecting a suitable

reference material for soft

drink plants

1. Select a CRM with a density range

that reflects your application

You should verify the measuring

performance of an instrument in the

density range of typical samples (e.g.,

syrup or finished soft drink). Certified

reference materials (CRMs) that are

typically used for density meters being

used in soft drink production are water

(density: 998 kg/m 3 ), glucose/water

10 % (density: 1040 kg/m 3 ), and sodium

bromide (density: 1250 kg/m 3 ).

2. Understand the difference between

ISO 17025 and ISO 17034 conformity

Most density standards only conform

with ISO 17025, meaning that the

reference values are valid at the day of

determination but don’t consider any

drift due to shipment or storage. Since

the reference material isn’t immediately

used after production, this is an element

of uncertainty that, if possible, should be




ISO 17025 standards

Traceable to International System of

Units (SI)

Appropriate for ISO 17025 calibrations

17025 requirements




Certified value is guaranteed … at the day of certification until the end of the density standard’s shelf life




Measurement uncertainty includes homogeneity,

short-term stability due to

shipment, and long-term stability

Continuous stability measurements by

manufacturer until end of shelf life

No (not specified drift has to be considered by


Table 1: Differences between density standards fulfilling ISO 17025 and ISO 17034.




For ISO 17034-certified reference

materials, reference values are valid

until the end of the standard’s lifetime,

and they always conform with ISO 17025

as well. Producers must measure each

batch of standards in regular intervals

throughout the complete lifetime, so the

specified reference values are always

guaranteed. The stated “expanded

uncertainty” comprises homogeneity,

long-term stability, and short-term

stability regarding shipment.

3. Look up the specified measuring


Ideally, a density meter is calibrated with

a reference material 3x more accurate

than the instrument’s specification (if

available). When checking the measuring

uncertainty, consider whether it refers

to ISO 17025 or ISO 17034. At first

glance, the specification might look

appealing. But if the density standard

is only certified according to ISO 17025,

end customers have to estimate –

imprecisely – the drift of the reference

value between the production data and

day of use.

In order to get a feeling for specified

uncertainties, the table below has

an example from an Anton Paar

density standard, which compares the

uncertainty coming from the reference

method and the expanded uncertainty.

It also considers the long-term stability,

potential influences from shipment, etc.

(ISO 17034).

4. Check the reference method used for

determination of specified values

Another aspect of a trustworthy

reference material is the reference

method that’s used for determination of

reference values. For several standards

on the market, no information about

the reference method is stated, and

some refer only to pycnometer norms.

Ideally, a reference material is measured

with the primary method. For density

measurement, this is hydrostatic

weighing, which national metrology

institutes (NMIs) around the world tend

to use.

5. Verify the ampoule material and


The ampoule material and closure both

play a role ensuring the filled reference

material doesn’t change its composition

due to external influences or evaporation.

For some density standards, the liquid

from the ampoule can even be smelled

because the plastic caps that are used

are prone to exchange with ambience.

What’s behind the “hydrostatic

weighing” method?

The hydrostatic weighing method is

based on the Archimedes principle:

A sphere with well-known volume

and mass is immersed in the liquid

under test. Its apparent loss of mass

is equivalent to the mass of the

displaced liquid. By knowing this mass

and volume, along with weighing

the apparent mass of the sphere,

the density of the liquid can be

Density standards from the

market leader of digital density


Recently, Anton Paar, the maker of the

world’s most accurate digital density

meter, opened an independent, ISO

17034-accredited production site for

reference materials. Since ISO 17034

requirements are always included in those

of ISO 17025, the reference materials

conform with both ISO standards. Values

can be retrieved from the online certificate

anytime. The ampoules are sealed by

safety-glass caps with a shatterproof

breaking point, which can easily be opened

with a finger. The standards are available

in the Anton Paar webshop.

The selection criteria for high-quality

reference material might seem obvious

at first glance: uncertainty, range, ISOconformity,

reference method, and

ampoule material. But once research

gets underway, the differences

are quickly visible. By keeping the

specifications explained above in mind,

producers can ensure consistent quality

of all drinks coming from a plant and

stop wasting costly raw materials.

Of course, soft drink producers

can search for certain instruments,

calibration services, and reference

KHS Group and E.Leclerc Realize Showcase

Project for the French Beverage Market

Subsidiary Aquamark invests in economical, resource-conserving Nature MultiPack system

from KHS

French retail chain E.Leclerc has an ambitious target: to significantly reduce the amount of

packaging material used for its own brands. It thus began looking for an environmentallyfriendly

alternative to classic shrink film for its water brand Marque Repère. In KHS the

company ultimately found a competent partner that was able to reliably meet its exacting

requirements. In 2020 and 2021 Aquamark subsequently invested in two Innopack Nature

MultiPack machines from the Dortmund systems supplier. With this resource-conserving

system the bottler will save more than 250,000 metric tons of plastic per annum in the years

to come.

Single-use plastics are having a hard

time of it in France at the moment,

with the French government aiming to

largely eradicate the use of this material

by 2040. Since the beginning of 2022,

for instance, it has been forbidden to

sell a wide range of fruit and vegetables

in plastic packaging. The object of the

exercise is to specifically encourage and

expand the instigation of returnable

systems and thus closed recycling

loops. This consistent policy has met

with considerable approval from the

general public. The number of ecoconscious

consumers has significantly

increased over the last few years, with

the result that local companies are

starting to feel the pressure. It thus

appears to be clear which direction

developments are to take.

The KHS packaging machine aligns the PET bottles so that the adhesive is applied at exactly the right

place on the container.

In 2020 and 2021 French water bottler Aquamark invested in two Innopack Nature MultiPack machines

from KHS for its 1.0- and 1.5-liter plastic bottles.

Reduce packaging material

without compromising on

bottle design

French retail chain E.Leclerc is setting

a good example in this respect,

deciding to gradually cut down on

the amount of packaging material

– especially plastics – used for its

own brands even before the state

regulation came into effect. This

conscious decision to become more

environmentally friendly is part of an

ambitious sustainability strategy that

envelops all areas of the company

from energy management through

transportation systems to the use

of resources. The same applies to

drinkworld Technology + Marketing · June 2022



E.Leclerc’s many subsidiaries, of

which the Aquamark water brand is


The beverage producer from the

community of Laqueuille, a good 40

kilometers west of Clermont-Ferrand,

specializes in the bottling of still and

carbonated water into PET bottles. For

many years Aquamark relied on classic

shrink film to package its 0.33, 0.5,

0.75, 1.0- and 1.5-liter containers. “Film

packaging has obvious advantages

for consumers. The packs can be

safely and easily transported and

unpacked with little effort,” explains

Hubert Decroix, Aquamark’s general

manager. “However, when it comes

to sustainability and environmental

protection, conventional secondary

packaging doesn’t do so well.” The

use thereof clearly contradicted

the bottler’s sustainability strategy

that for several years has stipulated

that very light PET bottles made of

100% recyclate are used, thus saving

significant amounts of plastic. It thus

follows that in 2019 the concern decided

to replace its film with a resourceconserving,


alternative – an ambitious undertaking

with annual filling quantities of around

350 million liters of water.

The Nature MultiPack from KHS forms PET bottles or cans into stable packs with the help of easy-toremove

dots of adhesive.

Here, Hubert Decroix and his team had a

fixed target in mind right from the very

beginning. “We wanted a pioneering

machine that’s especially gentle on

resources and uses as little plastic as

possible,” the general manager states.

“We didn’t want to compromise on

the container design, however, for our

lightweight bottles already satisfy our

high demands regarding the protection

of resources and the environment.”

Conscious decision for more

environmental protection

In looking for a suitable alternative,

Hubert Decroix remembered reading

an article in the KHS Group’s customer

magazine on the development of the

Snap Pack. The Carlsberg Group had

launched the system to market in 2018

in cooperation with KHS. The Snap

Pack is based on the environmentallyfriendly

Nature MultiPack packaging

system engineered by the Dortmund

systems supplier that forms beverage

cans or PET bottles into packs using

dots of adhesive. “In theory, this system

without any secondary packaging was

exactly the answer we were looking

for for our PET bottles,” says Hubert

Decroix. He thus spoke to his French

KHS representative Thierry Tanezie,

whom he has been in close contact with

for many years.

A period of intensive talks followed,

with both parties encouraging and

challenging one another, as Thierry

Tanezie remarks. “Aquamark made

high demands of us regarding product

quality, machine efficiency and the

use of resources,” he claims. One big

challenge marking the start of the

project was the low weight of the bottles

to be processed. “Lightweight bottles

hadn’t yet featured in the development

of our Nature MultiPack technology.

As Aquamark understandably didn’t

want to make any changes to its bottle

design, we adapted our packaging

system so that lightweight packs can

now be processed on it without any

trouble whatsoever,” explains KHS’

sales manager for France.

The adhesive needed to hold the

containers together played a key role

in the optimum implementation of



the customer’s specifications, with

the amount used to join the client’s

1.0-liter bottles reduced from 1.8 to

1.0 grams. “The dedication shown by

KHS’ expert team was truly impressive.

They understood and implemented our

complex requirements perfectly. This

is by no means par for the course but

the result of a fantastic exchange of

knowledge, from which both parties

profit in the long term,” praises Hubert


Efficient and economical

The numerous further developments

and cooperative nature of the

companies’ partnership ultimately

convinced the beverage bottler to

invest in the resource-conserving

KHS system for its 1.0-liter bottle in

2020. In May 2021 the first Innopack

Nature MultiPack machine with an

output of up to 25,000 bottles an

hour was successfully commissioned.

Since September of last year the new

six-packs have been marketed at

E.Leclerc’s around 750 supermarkets

throughout the nation – with great

success: since the market launch sales

have increased by 15%. “This new style

of packaging is very popular with our

customers. They understand that we

want to make a valuable contribution to

the protection of our environment with

our Nature MultiPacks,” Hubert Decroix

explains. By doing away with the shrink

film, Aquamark currently saves about

25,000 metric tons of plastic a year.

During the course of the Aquamark project KHS developed the Nature MultiPack machine further so

that it can now easily process lightweight bottles made entirely of recyclate.

Moreover, the new acquisition proves

convincing as it consumes less energy

than the shrink packer previously in use

thanks to the omission of the heating

tunnel. With this saving and by cutting

down on the amount of adhesive

needed, costs per pack have been

considerably reduced. Hubert Decroix

estimates that he will have a full return

on his investment in two years. “At the

start of the project we of course studied

all of the systems on the market. None

of them could match the benefits of

KHS’ plant engineering as regards

sustainability, efficiency and economy,”

the Frenchman says. “The Nature

MultiPacker has definitely exceeded

our expectations. It has an efficiency of

98% – which is a marvelous result.”

drinkworld Technology + Marketing · June 2022



This high level of productivity also has a

positive impact on the work performed

by the operators. The old shrink packer

required frequent routine tasks to be

carried out, one of which was to change

the film reel on a regular basis, with the

machine then temporarily stopped. “In

contrast, the KHS system is designed

in such a way that it operates fully

automatically. This considerably eases

the operators’ workload,” Thierry

Tanezie comments.

Showcase project for the French market

Such outstanding results made

Aquamark’s decision to procure a second

Innopack Nature MultiPack machine

an easy one. The new investment,

that is to process up to 32,000 1.5-

liter bottles an hour, is scheduled for

commissioning in September 2022.

The company expects that in switching

over to this system it will be able to

save an additional 250,000 metric

tons of plastic per annum, for the 1.5-

liter bottle accounts for about 50% of

the water brand’s sales volume. Hubert

Decroix is positive about the market

launch in October 2022. “I’m reckoning

on us also achieving a solid growth with

our 1.5-liter bottle. If this proves to be

the case, we’ll gradually build up our

partnership with KHS to include further

sizes of container, among other things.”

The French beverage industry has

already taken note of the great success

of the Nature MultiPack at Aquamark.

“Our project has awakened the interest

of a good number of bottlers. We’ve

since received numerous queries for

our environmentally-friendly system,”

says KHS sales manager Thierry

Tanezie happily. It may be that this

project is therefore just the start of a

bigger change on the local market.







The 1.0-liter bottles are readied for distribution to the around 750 supermarkets in the E.Leclerc Group, to which Aquamark also belongs.
