Many of the smaller suppliers exhibiting in Amsterdam were showing the more innovative products to be spotted at this year's event. On the non-food side, Swiss firm Bonyf launched its Steryl Brush tabs. These are designed to kill all the bacteria and fungi that can infect toothbrushes. Half an effervescent tab dissolved in warm water is enough to disinfect two brushes within a matter of minutes. Also in the non-food halls, German company DialPack was exhibiting its novel suntan lotion dispenser for the first time. The pack contains separate cartridges of high and low SPF lotions. The consumer chooses the appropriate protection by turning a dial on the front of the pack. When the pump is pressed, the pack mixes automatically the two lotions to deliver the required SPF. A neat idea from Italian firm Acetum stood out in the food halls. It was showing a ready made, balsamic sauce for garnishing foods. The product ­ which is ambient and comes in a plastic dosing bottle ­ is being listed by Waitrose. Dutch supplier King Cuisine was showing its All About Olives and Tapenades chilled range, including a new concept ­ a double decker pack comprising a trio of tapenades on the top, and a separate pot of breadsticks. King Cuisine is represented in this country by May & Raeburn, as is Vleems Food Products which is preparing to launch an own label rival to the Rustlers brand of ready-to- microwave meat sandwiches. Vleems is offering a twin pack ­ either cheese burgers, hot dogs or chicken sandwiches ­ which will sell for a 10% premium to the Rustlers' singles. {{NEWS }}
