   Sydney, AUSTRALIA, 6th August 2013 – Australian packaging firm – Smart Lid Systems – has introduced its award winning takeout coffee lids through the café outlets serving Foxtel Australia, News Limited, The Royal National Park, and the Museum of Sydney.
Spread over the Sydney metropolitan area, the first outlets to stock the Smart Lid are operated by the Toast Food Group, with more independent outlets signing up daily.
The Smart Lid is like no other cup lid as it undergoes a change in colour when it is placed onto a cup of hot coffee or tea, ‘screaming’ look at me to those around. As the drink cools you will see the packaging return to its dark colour.
Anthony Bayss, Director of Smart Lid Systems explains ”Any business or customer relationships are based on communication and interaction. The Smart Lid grabs the coffee drinkers attention and creates an instant rapport with the café staff.”
With the vast majority of all disposable cups and lids manufactured and imported from overseas, the Smart Lid is very proud to have another important point of difference: We are an Australian invention, designed, patented, and manufactured here in Sydney.
Smart Lid Systems is a licensee of the Australian Made Campaign, with the Aussie invention also available for export via pallet orders.
Mr Bayss adds “The Smart Lid was invented by café owners, for café owners and we have applied decades of combined café & barista service to develop a product that places coffee house owners and consumers at ease regarding the safety concerns of hot beverage spillages.”
“The packaging industry has changed on many levels, including the appreciation of quality coffee at home, customer interaction with quality packaging and the universal acceptance of ecommerce. All this coupled with affordable domestic coffee making machinery has also created consumer demand for the Smart Lid. Home Packs of the Smart Lid will be available online from mid-August.”
Hot beverage consumption this winter will be a whole new experience for cafes who wish to make their hot drink packaging and brand standout from the competition.
