STURTEVANT, WI — JohnsonDiversey announced today its Suma® OptifillTM/MC cleaning system for manual warewashing has received an Ameristar Packaging Award. Presented annually by the Institute of Packaging Professionals, the Ameristar awards recognize achievements across six areas, including innovation, sustainability, economics, product protection, package performance and marketing.
Unlike wall-mounted systems, JohnsonDiversey’s Optifill system is ready to use out of the box, without complicated installation or training instructions. The Optifill system uses volumetric technology to dispense the precise amount of detergent or sanitizer, resulting in consistent cleaning results. Once empty, the Optifill package, which is manufactured from 25 percent post-consumer recycled materials, is fully recyclable.
“We liked [Optifill] because it was very green,” said James Freund, CPP, an Ameristar judge and engineering manager, process development, for Hollister Incorporated. “It allows for use of concentrated chemicals and it ensured proper dispensing. Therefore, customer overuse was eliminated.”
Designed for multi-compartment sinks, staff simply place the Optifill system on the sink divider, align the faucet and turn on the water. The water flow activates the system’s unique patented pumping system which initiates the dispensing of chemical. Volumetric technology accurately dispenses detergent or sanitizer based on flow of water. It’s that simple.
“The Optifill system represents a true breakthrough in the cleaning of dishes and pots and pans,” said George Parr, vice president, global marketing and business development, for JohnsonDiversey. “No other solution on the market today provides the same level of accuracy and reliability for manual warewashing. We are honored by the Institute’s recognition of Optifill and the value it brings for kitchens everywhere.”
Each compact 2.5-liter bottle contains super-high product concentration (1:2,500) and generates up to 150 sink fills of usable solution, reducing packaging and transportation costs and environmental impact.
The Optifill system includes the Suma® Supreme Pot and Pan Detergent and Final Step® Sanitizer.
