Now Even Babies Can Have Their Own “Espresso” Machine

I remember the first time I came across this shiny espresso machine that could freshly brew my own espresso at my very own home at any time of my day. It was fabulous and more importantly, effortless! Now even babies can have their own “espresso” machine the same way you brew your cup of morning joy out of your Nespresso (aided by George Cloney).

Nestlé introduced its premium BabyNes system, which prepare and deliver a hygienic, safe, easy and quick bottle for babies. The single-serve baby milk formula portions are sealed in capsules integrated with a microbiological filter that eliminates bacteria from the water. The bottle preparation takes place within the closed capsule which means it doesn’t have any contact with the machine or the user before going into the bottle.

The world’s first comprehensive state-of-the-art nutrition system for infants and toddlers, BabyNes, uses a patented technology to prepare the bottle with precisely the right dosage and temperature, at the push of a button, in less than one minute. The new baby formula system is an attempt to catch on the hotly competitive infant formula market. At the top ranking China appears as the biggest and fastest-growing formula market in the world with sales are rising more than 20 percent annually, compared with less than 4 percent in the U.S.

Nestlé’s infant formula, Good Start, accounts for 10% of the US market, ranked as top three brands, together with Mead Johnson Nutrition Co’s Enfamil (40% of the market), and Abbott Laboratories’ Similac (40%). The industry is rapidly consolidating and manufacturers are expanding their share of developing world markets as seen by Nestlé’s recent acquisition of Pfizer’s infant-nutrition business.

The high-tech BabyNes machine can be purchased for $287 and works with a range of six single-serving formula pods (purchased separately in packs of 26 for $56-$64), tailored for infants and young children up to the age of three years. Taking into consideration the baby’s evolving nutritional needs Nestlé customized four formulas to infants in their first year, and one formula for each of the following two years. The baby formula also is a perfect combination to when solid food is introduced to the infant’s diet.

Battling against organizations such as Baby Milk Action who raises campaigns against breastmilk substitutes, Nestlé said it supported WHO recommendations on breastfeeding for the six-month period and “continued breastfeeding thereafter for as long as possible”, according to The Guardian.

Shanghai Metal Corporation is specialized in producing aluminum foil that can be heat sealed to aluminum or aluminum-plastic mix containers, widely used in manufacturing infant milk formula pods. Aluminum foil has an excellent tight performance and a super dam-proof function, whilst non-poisonous, odorless and 100% recyclable.  To find out more, please visit our Website, WordPress, LinkedIn , Twitter , Facebook  and Instagram.

Are There Enough Metal Buckets for the Ice Bucket Challenge?

The ALS Association’s viral marketing campaign for raising funds to to fight the ALS disease has gone mainstream in a really short time. The association has already received over $31 million in donations. The Ice Bucket Challenge (#icebucketchallenge) has already been taken by celebrities such as the WWE wrestler Triple H, actors Dwayne ”the Rock’ Johnson and Jean-Claude van Damme, singers Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, a venture capitalist Daymond John and footballers Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gerard Piqué just to name but a few.

The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same. This effort is there to raise the awareness of the ALS disease.  People can either accept the challenge or make a donation to an ALS Charity of their choice, or do both.

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

Since being founded in 1985, the ALS Association’s mission has been to do and fund global research on ALS disease and to cooperate with government, academia, industry and other nonprofit organizations. The association has funded over $99 million in research and clinical management projects.

 

Since the world is going crazy about the phenomenon, metal bucket manufacturers are forced to make more buckets. Galvanized steel is one of the best materials because steel keeps the ice chilled longer than plastic, and the galvanized coating protects the surface from corrosion.

Shanghai Metal Corporation is also a major supplier of galvanized steel that suits perfectly for building cold ice shower buckets. To know more about our galvanized steel, please visit our website.
