BACKGROUND OF THE PROBLEM
To reduce the impact on the environment and to reduce costs, a solution to extending the life of Oils used in the manufacture of Pringles products would be highly desirable.
We have considered the use of synthetic and natural antioxidants, as well as adsorbents for removal of oil degradation products. We are not looking to re-evaluate these solutions in this challenge unless there is a novel development vis-a-vis what is commercially available. We would not be interested in a solution that requires a Capital investment over $100K per line unless there was a return on investment less than 3 years.
In line with the aforementioned problem background, Kellogg's is looking for any type of solution that will help us extend the lifetime of our oils. Solutions that can be considered can include:
TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS / PERFORMANCE CRITERIA:
Kellogg's would be looking to evaluate the solutions based on the following parameters:
Specific cost targets will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. As a general guideline, we would be targeting no increase in Oil cost and a reduction in Oil waste and usage.
TIMEFRAME FOR DEVELOPMENT
Phase 1: PoC or Pilot (2-4 months)
Phase 2: further commercial roll-out to be discussed on a case-by-case basis
POTENTIAL MARKET / BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
In case the solution proves its efficacy, Kellogg's will consider further roll-out and implementation of the solution across our global manufacturing network.
Our manufacturing site is located in Malaysia. We would be looking to conduct the trial in that location.
