Israeli food tech company, Ripples, has launched the Ripple Maker II Pro, a hardware device that can print a range of images on the tops of beverages, all in natural plant-based colours.
FoodBev met with the Ripples team at this year’s Drinktec, and was treated to a Winnie the Pooh printed image on our coffee!
The unique technology is designed to help businesses and brands elevate consumer drink experiences.
Meanwhile, the company’s patent-pending Chameleon Plus pods are made with flavourless cabbage extract and adjust to a drink’s pH level to print a spectrum of blue- and red-based hues to enhance cocktails.
Ripples CEO, Yossi Meshulam, said: “Gen Y and even more so Gen Z keep food and beverage businesses on their toes by raising expectations for innovation, personalisation, and sustainability. The Ripple Maker II Pro was created with these audiences in mind. We wanted to elevate their food and beverage experiences and give them eye-catching reasons to share their moments on social media.”
The new beverage-top printer features a range of efficiency upgrades that ensure fast operational workflow. Dual pods enable two colours to be printed onto a single drink and the new automated sensor recognises cup dimensions to adjust the image size, keeping prints centred without manual intervention.
