Case Study – Bulk Foods Dispensing Solution

Bulk Foods Dispensing Solution Gravity Bin Case Study. Our Team of retail display professionals can help your business find the right product display solution.

Call us or visit our showroom at 327A Neilson Street, Penrose in Auckland.

We work alongside many New Zealand businesses to create retail display, point of sale and merchandising products.

Our retail display catalogues and website product range can offer practical information.

But nothing beats talking with one of our retail display professionals to discuss how we can help you.

Bulk Foods Dispensing Solution problem the customer needed solving?

Dispensing & displaying bulk cereal

A new customer came to us seeking a solution to their issue of displaying and dispensing bulk cereal.

This customer has a business that sells bulk foods direct to consumers.

They were seeking an improved way to display and dispense their bulk cereals to increase sales.

Currently they had displayed them in a large bulk foods bin but this didn’t present very well.

How did we help this local supermarket store?

We consulted with our customer to understand what the problem was and work to find a solution.

The customer explained they weren’t happy with the presentation of their cereal products.

We then suggested they try using our Gravity Bins as these allowed a clear presentation of the cereals and easy dispensing.

These Bulk Foods Dispensing Gravity Bins are easy to install and can be used with a wide range of products, not just cereals.

Due to being able to see the product as it’s being dispensed the consumer can stop the flow at anytime the want.

The Gravity Bins come in two standard sizes 8 Litre Bulk Foods Dispensing Bin and 13 Litre Bulk Foods Dispensing Bin.

We suggested the 8 Litre Bulk Foods Dispensing Bin size would suit best due to the volume of product sold.

The other benefit of moving to Gravity Bins is the decreased opportunity of contamination due to the consumer not being able to touch the product.

What was the Product Display Solutions outcome?

We sent the Gravity Bins out to our customer and they swapped the cereal products into these Bins.

One of the key outcomes was obviously the improved presentation but also that they found less stock needed to be displayed.

This allowed for better rotation and fresher product for their customers.

Our customer also liked the feature of the “false front” which you fill with product to give the impression the bins are always full.

This allows the retailer to run the stock down in the main part of the Bin for rotation.

Case Study – Stock Movement Solution for a Local Supermarket

Stock movement solution case study. Please touch base with us if you are in need of advice on moving stock around safely and efficiently in your store.

We have solutions for dry goods, fresh goods and general retail products.

Call us or visit our showroom at 327A Neilson Street, Penrose in Auckland for inspiration or advice!

Stock movement solution problem our customer needed solving?

A local supermarket approached us with an issue about moving stock from their food preparation area out onto the retail floor.

Problems moving stock around the store.

Our customer had many different size containers and bins they were using to transport product and were looking for a solution to fit as many as possible.

The solution had to be easily moved and able to cope with varied environmental conditions.

How did we help this local supermarket store?

We discussed a number of things with our customer such as, environment, bin/container type and distance products needed to be moved.

After speaking with our customer we were able to determine what type of Skate or Dollie would be the best fit.

It was identified that the Skate needed to be able to withstand a wet environment as well as handling fairly heavy loads.

At times the Skate would have upwards of 100kg of stock loaded onto it and then needed to be easily moved to another location.

The option of using a Skate handle was also offered to minimise the effort in moving the Skate around.

What was the Product Display Solutions outcome?

Our customer was able to use the Skate for many purposes and as it had Stainless Steel castors it was fine in a wet environment.

This was key for our customer as they wanted to be able to re-purpose it when needed.

Due to the design of the Skates base area our customer could use it to transport many different size bins and containers.

The Skate handle was found to be a useful add on as it allowed staff to “pull” the load as opposed to pushing it.

This meant they were able to see where they were going as opposed to pushing the load and having to look around it.

August Featured Product – Bread Crate with Skate

NZ Bread Crates with Skate and vented crates are for more than just transporting bread. These plastic bread crates and vented crates are extremely adaptable.

You might think you know all the uses of vented bread crates. But you’re wrong. They can be used for a huge variety of non-bread related tasks.

Plastic bread crates are great for storing and moving baked goods.

Their size, food safe plastic and great airflow make them super versatile. From museum storage to drying seaweed, we’ve seen it all.

Why use plastic bread crates?

Here at Mills Display, our plastic bread crates are made from food-grade polypropylene. That means they are safe for use for food items.

There’s no risk of contamination from dodgy plastic or insects that live in timber. They are washable, so if you spill food, it’s a matter of washing them off and they are as good as new again.

They can be stacked and moved around easily on bread crate skates or by forklift.

This is great for food preparation, where you can prep and plate things up and then move them to the chiller or freezer until they are needed back in the kitchen.

You can easily stack plastic bread crates, to save room.

Because they are vented, they allow airflow. This makes them ideal for chiller or freezer use, because the cold air will reach the product straight away.

Allowing for much quicker- and safer- cooling of the food. The reverse works too, with dough rising easily in warm, damp environments.

For longer-term storage, there is less chance of food spoiling with fresh air moving around.

Bread crates have many uses

There are a huge range of ways our customers use bread crates, other than bread.

Catering and event planning

Traditional food organisations such as caterers and event planners use bread crates as part of the set-up process.

Like in commercial kitchens, the food is stored and then easily transported, unloaded and served from the stacked bread crates.

This means that food can easily be prepped the day before, set up on platters and then stacked up in the chiller.

Ready to be wheeled onto a truck and delivered the following day – chilled and ready to go.

Meals on wheels

Food delivery places such as Meals on Wheels also use bread crates so that meals can be securely transported in bulk to the recipients.

Vegetable transportation: Some vegetable growers like to use bread crates as vegetable or produce storage, depending on the crop.

Delicate spinach leaves or easily-bruised lettuce can be packaged safely in bread crates.

Only having one layer of stock ensures the produce reaches the destination in perfect condition.

Museum storage

Museums like bread crates to store items. Because they are storing objects in a single layer, there is less chance of damage to these valuable and rare artefacts.

The airflow around them is good too, as it discourages mould and mildew forming. The plastic means no risk of bugs being attracted by a timber frame.

Drying products

Because our bread crates are safe for use around food and they are well vented, some food producers use them to dry product.

Seaweed and salted fish are ideal to be dried in bread crates!

Seedling growing

Nurseries use bread crates to shift seedlings and plants around. From the nursery to the store, it’s easy to store pots of plants in bread crates.

You can water them, and the excess water drains away, making them ideal for garden use.

Some keen gardeners are even using bread crates to plant directly in by lining them with polythene, punching a few holes in the plastic, and filling with soil.

No weeds and they are easy to transport around when you need to put the seedlings in the ground.

Bread display

Because we can brand your bread crates, they make an attractive way to display your baked goodies. Whether at a supermarket or farmers market, this is the easiest way to keep your product free from damage during transporting and displayed attractively at your destination.

Why to buy your plastic bread crates from Mills Display?

While we hold black crates in stock, a wide variety of colours can be manufactured, although a minimum order applies.

They come in industry-standard size suitable for tilted display racks or bakery racks and bread dollies/skates.

We can label and brand two sides of your bread crates for you by hot stamping. This not only is great advertising for your company, but it also makes the crates difficult to misplace.

Other companies won’t want your branded bread crates and you want to retain your stock, so it’s a perfect solution.

Versatile and time-saving

• Volume: 48 Litre vented bread crate.
• Dimension: 680 mm x 600 mm x 150 mm.
• Material: food grade polypropylene.
• Can be stacked for space-efficiency.
• Option to brand the Bread Crates with your company logo
• Minimum order quantity applies.
• Artwork to be supplied.

Chilled food storage problem the customer needed solving?

One of our supermarket customers approached us as they were looking for a chilled food storage option.

Specifically they needed to keep chilled food off the floor at a minimum height.

How did we help this local supermarket store?

We did have a product widely used in the industry currently but this didn’t fit their needs exactly.

Our product manager contacted a range of our suppliers to see what options they had available.

We came across Dunnage racks from one of our suppliers and they fitted the bill perfectly.

The Dunnage racks can hold up to 600 kg’s of weight, are 300 mm off the ground and come in four sizes.

These two features were key for our customer along with the ability to easily clean the racks.

Made from hard wearing HDPE these racks are designed to be long lasting and weather the demanding conditions.

What was the Product Display Solutions outcome?

Our customer reported back that the Dunnage racks performed exactly as required.

The ability to mix and match sizes was also helpful as they had some tight spaces to work with.

They kept the food off the ground at the required height and were easily moved around with a fork lift or pallet truck.

Also the ease of cleaning them due to being HDPE was a bonus as this needed to be done regularly.
