Coffee Cup Warmer
However, if you’re getting ready in the morning or you get distracted easily, it doesn’t take long for your coffee to slowly get freezing cold–and nobody likes that. The great news is that you don’t have to keep drinking cold coffee. We’ve collected a list of some of the most effective mug warmers to keep your cup of coffee warm for as long as possible. A nice mug warmer will make sipping your hot tea or coffee a more enjoyable experience. If you’re a person who likes to slowly sip their coffee as they get ready in the mornings, or if you need a way to keep your tea or coffee warm while working at the office. When enjoying a delicious cup of coffee in the morning, it’s nice to sip it while it’s still warm. https://buddiesbuzz.com/mug-warmer/ What is Coffee Mug Warmer? A mug warmer is a small desktop device that works similar to the way electric kettles do. Functionally, a Tea or coffee mug warmer is a tiny hot plate that sits on your desk and heats the bottom of your cup to keep the liquid inside hot. A good mug warmer will keep your drink warm without exacerbating unpleasant flavors via scorching. But it’s important to remember that, due to the inevitable effects of oxidation and the way these drinks break down chemically over time, there’s no way to completely preserve the body and flavor of freshly brewed coffee or tea. https://youtu.be/uEw7mr-iIaU Most coffee mug warmers are electric, allowing you to plug them into a wall socket or a USB port. First off, because they’re simple yet nifty little tools that won’t only make you feel fancy when you use them, but will also make sipping your coffee a lot more relaxed. And Keeping Our Coffee (and Tea) Hot. All coffee mug warmers aim to maintain a specific beverage temperature, according to what the company deems ideal for drinking; most of the warmers we researched and tested claimed to target a range between 120 °F and 155 °F (though in practice none could achieve a temperature above 145 °F). In our own testing, we found the ideal range to be between 130 °F and 140 °F. Any colder tasted lukewarm, and any hotter made sipping uncomfortable. Of course, your own preference may differ. How does it work? Tea Mug warmers use heating coils in the same way electric kettles do. Once plugged in and switched on (most have an on/off switch on the side), electricity flows to a small heating coil built inside the device. A mug warmer works by using the simple properties of heat transfer and thermal energy. If we look at the temperature on a microscopic scale, a material with higher thermal energy just means the molecules in that material have high kinetic energy and are moving around much faster than molecules in a cooler material. The molecules in a hot cup of coffee, for instance, are moving faster than the molecules in a cold cup of coffee. As the molecules collide, some of that energy transfers, warming up the cooler molecules and cooling down the hotter molecules in a process known as conduction. When you put your cool hands against a warm cup of coffee or tea, your hands will eventually get warmer because heat is transferring from the cup to your skin. So the mug warmer’s coils transfer heat to the base of the mug warmer, and once you place a cup onto the device, the heat from the base will transfer to the cup and the liquid within.

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Hot Fill Packaging in Food & Beverage Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Hot Fill Packaging in Food and Beverage Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the industrial and commercial progress of most of the regions in the world. The persistence of the COVID-19 for a longer period has adversely affected the most vulnerable groups of the population including adults aged more than 60 years, mothers, and children. Globally, countries are expecting a drastic decline in dietary quality in low- and middle-income countries as a result of loss of income, the shutdown of businesses, human and goods movement restrictions imposed by governments, de-globalization, and breakdown of the supply chain of food markets due to both demand shocks and supply constraints. Healthcare facilities have been consistently giving their best to combat COVID-19 and helping resources to divert from nutritional care including micronutrient supplementation, prevention, and treatment of child malnutrition. In normal times, malnutrition remains a multidimensional problem and during the pandemic situation, it has taken a major hit. Thus, the population will be more focused on building higher immunity levels during the post-crisis situation. Furthermore, due to COVID-19, supply, import-export, and demand have been affected as there was less supply the prices of food products and that impacted the demand of the global hot fill packaging market. However, manufacturers are trying to build new strategies to cope with the situation. Every sector in the food industry has been impacted either positively or negatively due to the COVID-19. The hot fill packaging market has positive as well as negative impacts in some of the aspects of the COVID-19 outbreak. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a change in eating habits, disruption in the supply chain which affected the market adversely. AWARENESS ABOUT CLEAN AND HEALTHY FOOD INCREASED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC According to the health safety evidence coronavirus appear to be stable at low and freezing temperatures on food surfaces for a certain period, however food hygiene and good food safety practices can prevent their transmission through food. The best practice for food business operators and consumers is to maintain the highest standards of personal hygiene, food hygiene, and the standard protocol of social distancing and limiting social contact, and detecting /isolating the infected persons from food handling operations. World Health Organization (WHO) has advised social distancing and maintaining high personal hygiene standards and food safety as a means of containing and stopping transmission of this virus. Thus, consumers are demanding healthier and safe food to avoid the disease. The food product is cooked thoroughly and then filled into a container during hot filling processes. Products are heated to temperatures above 85°C (185°F) and filled into a given container to ensure a safe product. Once the container is filled and sealed it can be inverted and held in the air for three minutes before being cooled by water. Inverting of the package is done to pasteurize the headspace and lid, this method has been used in industry for filling into glass jars, plastic trays, cartons, and pouches. Thus the rise in demand for preservative-free products helps in increasing the shelf life of the product and rising awareness regarding the benefits associated with the usage of hot fill packaging. The adoption of economical as well as simpler processes will likely enhance the growth of the hot fill packaging market in the forecast period. Thus, due to the safety, sterilization, and sanitization of food with hot-fill packaging, the demand is increasing worldwide, and manufacturers also trying to launch new techniques and products to fulfill the demands of the consumers. For instance, · The below pie chart shows the consumption of packed beverages in 2020 Thus, it can be concluded that the consumption of packed food has been increased to ensure food safety which is adding to the growth of the global hot fill packaging market. COVID 19 IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN OF HOT FILL PACKAGING The supply chain plays a major role when it comes to the sale of food products and due to the persistence of COVID-19, the supply chain has been disrupted worldwide. With the persistence of COVID-19, there have been restrictions on transportation, import, and export of food products. Furthermore, with the movement restriction on workers as well, the manufacturing of hot fill packaging and its products has been affected due to which the demand for consumers has not been fulfilled. Also, with restriction on import and export, it made difficult for the manufacturers to supply their products to various regions which also has impacted the prices of hot fill packaging. Thus, with ongoing restrictions due to COVID-19, the supply chain for the hot fill packaging market has been disrupted which is creating a major challenge for the market. The persistence of COVID-19 and restrictions on movement is disrupting the supply chain worldwide which is posing a major challenge for the global hot fill packaging market. However, manufacturers are trying to sell their products on digital platforms to cope up with the situation and hence getting positive responses from the consumers. For instance, · United States Plastic Corporation has the facility of their latest website technology, product tracking system, and order fulfillment equipment. The company says that “We hold nothing back when it comes to delivering quality products to our customers in an expeditious manner.” INITIATIVES Pipeline Packaging is one of the prominent players in the hot fill packaging industry. The company focuses on expanding its product manufacturing capacities, to cater to the large customer base to develop new products and also has taken initiatives in COVIID -19. CONCLUSION COVID-19 outbreak has affected every sector in the market which includes the hot fill packaging market. Some companies have closed their production facilities to mitigate potential risks from COVID-19. However, the demand for hot fill packaging has increased due to its benefits regarding food safety. Many researchers and manufacturers are urging governments to build awareness about safe and packed food. Manufacturers are introducing new techniques and innovations to increase food safety and thus the business. This is significantly affecting the global hot fill packaging market. Thus, the hot fill packaging market will mark sudden surges in demand during the COVID-19 pandemic and is projected to significantly grow over a long period due to permanent changes in consumer buying behavior.
How COVID-19 Impacted on the Global Collagen Market in the Food & Beverage Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on the Global Collagen Market in the Food and Beverage Industry ANALYSIS ON IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL COLLAGEN MARKET COVID-19 has positively impacted the global collagen market with increased sales of the supplements. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), maintaining a good and healthy immune system may help in early recovery from viruses such as coronavirus. For that, people are advised to preserve vitamins, proteins and micronutrients in their bodies. Collagen is one of those supplements that help in maintaining the protein level in the human body. Keeping the current lifecycle in consideration, the amount of collagen produced in the human body is relatively weak. Thus, people have started opting for collagen supplements, increasing the demand for collagen-based accessories globally. There is a growing demand for collagen in the sports nutrition industry. Collagen is added to the supplements to maximize performance and leads to bodybuilding, increasing the prevalence of food supplements in athletes. Food supplements help the body maintained shape with an attractive physique. Thus, the increasing use of collagen as an ingredient in supplements for sports athletes has maximized collagen usage, leading to the increase in the extraction of collagen in the market. As a result, the key market players started to introduce a variety of sports nutrition containing collagen protein due to growing demand and its health benefits. For instance, · In April 2021, Reneva collagen drink launched a new product formulation and found a green apple flavor. It is packed with 10 grams of collagen peptides that help to enhance lean muscle gain, muscle strength, boost metabolism, and increase fat loss in combination with moderate exercise. · In September 2019, Vital Proteins launched Vital Performance, a collagen-based sports nutrition product tailored to meet the functional needs of athletes. · In August 2018, Advanced Protein Technology introduced a new line of collagen-based products named Nutra Collagen. This is built on the advanced quality of purity, quality and functionality. Thus growing demand for sports supplements will further fuel the demand for collagen in the market in the coming years. As per IRI (Information Resources, Incorporated) data, the demand for various dietary supplements has increased in the U.S. market. Since March 2020, the sales of accessories rose by 6%. There has been a rise in the demand for vitamin-C supplements and protein supplements by more than 100%. The declaration of dietary supplements as "essential" business has maintained the supply of these nutrients. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE TO BOOST THE GLOBAL COLLAGEN MARKET As COVID-19 has increased the demand for collagen and collagen-based supplements, a gap has appeared between the supply and direction of the product. To maintain the balance of supply and demand, various countries' governments are taking multiple and essential steps towards it. Moreover, after the outbreak of COVID-19, the consumers have become more conscious about the intake of food sourced from an animal. The majority of the population globally is turning vegetarian or either vegan, especially after the COVID-19 outbreak. With the growing awareness regarding the health benefits of consuming plant-based products and also about supporting the environment and animals with the consumption of plant-based collagen substitute products, the demand for an animal-based collagen-based product might shrink in the coming years. After the COVID-19, consumers are opting for vegetarian food and plant-based products, even plant-based meat, as they got more inclined to lead a clean and healthy lifestyle, which may restrain the market in the coming years. During the worldwide pandemic, the demand for health and dietary supplements has peaked up sharply. But at the same time, supply has been impacted because of limited manufacturing. Compared to traditional food manufacturers, the dietary supplement companies face huge supply chain problems due to shipping and manufacturing problems compiled with the increase in demand. The government is making many changes to handle the impact. For instance, · The Chinese government has accelerated the e-commerce trade among cross- borders and has launched new models to increase FDI. For this, the government has implemented a policy for VAT exemption, consumption tax and levied corporate income tax for retail export goods in specified zones. The tax exemption and other subsidiaries will help increase the number of imported goods in the local market. Local retailers will be encouraged to open up businesses in those specified zones known as the CBEC zone. · The Brazilian government published a resolution eliminating import taxes on medical products based on collagen. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE Due to higher demand, manufacturers have to make strategic decisions to maximize their profit and proper supply. Some of the strategic choices include acquiring with overseas manufacturers to regularize an appropriate collection of the products. For instance, · In June 2020, Nestlé Health Science (NHS), a global leader in nutritional science, decided to acquire a majority stake in Vital Proteins, America's leading collagen brand and a lifestyle and wellness platform offering supplements, beverages and food products. · In January 2020, Halma Plc acquired NovaBone Products, LLC ("NovaBone"), a designer and manufacturer of US FDA-approved synthetic bone graft products and collagen solutions. · In July 2020, Collagen Solutions Plc (AIM: COS) announced that it has entered into a new three-year agreement with NovaBone Products ("NovaBone"), a designer and manufacturer of the U.S. FDA-cleared synthetic bone grafts. This strategic decision among the critical player collagen market amid the pandemic will further escalate the growth of the collagen market in the coming years. Furthermore, various collaborations are expected in the coming years, further driving the market in the forecast year. PRICE IMPACT After the outbreak of COVID–19, it is most likely that prices for supplements such as vitamin C and protein-based supplements will rise. As per the experts, the increasing demand will lead to a rise in the prices for a shorter duration, but it will increase. The impact of price rise will affect the spot- buyers at the supply chain. Also, it is expected that companies that are 100% price-driven will face increased prices with a lack of goods. Compared to other commodities, collagen-based supplements are already sold at higher prices and by this pandemic, the prices have gone up. IMPACT ON DEMAND COVID-19 breakout has increased demand for various supplements such as protein supplements and vitamin C. Some of the accessories have even witnessed the increased demand by many folds due to the growing focus on healthy and robust immune systems. Collagen-based supplements are required for proper growth, especially in infants and kids. As during COVID-19, it is challenging to obtain the necessary amount of collagen from other sources. Thus, people prefer to overcome collagen deficiency with the help of collagen supplements such as pallets, tablets and capsules. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN Due to the pandemic condition worldwide, the manufacturers have done several changes in the supply chain of the product. In countries as India, the government has added the dietary supplement such as collagen-based supplements in the list of essential products. Thus, it is an on-selling product in the market during the COVID-19, but as the country is running under lockdown, the manufacturing has impacted the supply chain at almost every point. The product is already available in the market. Still, the consumers are not buying due to the fear of getting affected and on the other hand, some people are ordering the product, but due to the lack of delivery partners, the products are not reaching on time to the consumers. In many regions, overseas contract manufacturers are being contacted, but they ask for higher prices and air freight expenses. This has also impacted the overall supply chain of the product. However, e-commerce is playing an essential role in providing collagen-based sports nutrition. Despite the hurdles, e-commerce and private label saw a sharp rise as the industry braced itself for the second wave of the pandemic and beyond. For instance, · According to Nutrition Business Journal's "2020 Supplement Business Report," demand for the nutritional supplement has been grown is they are expected to grow at 61.4% in 2020. Further online sale is expected to reach USD 10 million in 2023 in which online sales of nutritional supplements will acquire 19.6% of sales by 2023." Thus pandemic has shifted the consumer shopping interest and forcibly satisfied with online shopping and thus resulting in a considerable share from e-commerce websites. The boom in online / e-commerce platforms has had an enormous effect on the market's supply chain as it provides greater flexibility, convenience to the consumer. This also helps maintain a better social distancing compared to traditional store-based retailers or supermarkets. Globally, after the lockdown, Google's search for food delivery services rose by 300 %. CONCLUSION As COVID-19 has affected most businesses around the globe, the market of collagen and collagen-based supplements has seen an unexpected rise in demand. With the growing concerns about the robust immune system to minimize the chances of coronavirus, the collagen-based supplements market has gone up. But at the same time, due to shut down in most countries, it has also adversely affected the supply of collagen. Along with this, the increased demand has also resulted in a hike in the price of collagen. The government and the manufacturers are taking various measures to maintain the supply-demand balance in the global collagen market.
