GP PRO, a division of Georgia-Pacific LLC, introduced a new dispensing solution for foodservice patrons: the GP PRO Automated Sealer. Helpful for on-premise dining, the machine includes a self-service attachment, which transforms it into a front-of-house solution that lets patrons quickly and conveniently seal their own beverages, freeing staff to focus on food preparation and customer service. The Automated Sealing Machine is a touchless beverage lidding solution that provides a tamper-evident, spill-resistant sealed film on to-go cups and helps improve hygiene, reduce accidental spills and eliminate the need for plastic snap lids. Originally launched as a back-of-house solution in the early days of COVID-19, the resurgence of on-premise dining led GP PRO to develop a patron self-service solution that helps drive fountain beverage sales, provides customers with greater convenience and a commitment to health and safety, according to Alec Frisch, vice president and general manager of GP PRO’s foodservice category.
