New Self-heating Halal Beverage Can - Self-heating technology can be Halal

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, March 2009

Hot-Can Sdn Bhd has created a revolutionary smart self-heating packaging system. By combining its own patented design and technology with state of the art manufacturing, Hot-Can delivers a new and affordable way to drink hot Halal beverages on the go, which are also eco-friendly.

Hot-Can is a pioneer in the smart packaging arena and is setting new standards for quality, performance, speed and pricing of self-heating beverages in the global Halal market. The special double chambered aluminium can contains the beverage in the outer chamber and holds water and calcium oxide (quick lime) separately in the inner chamber.

When the button at the bottom of the can is pressed, the water mixes with the quicklime, starting an exothermic reaction that heats the contents of the outer chamber in less then 3 minutes by 50-55°C to give you a piping hot drink. With a global market of over 200 billion beverage cans sold annually and over 500 billion hot drinks consumed annually, a small market share equates to greater demand than possible supply. And due to its patented technology and cost effective Malaysian manufacturing. Hot-Can is strategically placed to exploit the demand for self-heating cans.

The Hot-Can also has a positive impact on the global economy by way of energy savings: each can heats the perfect cup of coffee in less than 3 minutes, whilst using up to 65% less energy than a standard kettle in the process. Furthermore, the can body is constructed from aluminium, which can be recycled many times over without losing any of its strength or quality. The aluminium can is the worlds most recycled packaging container, which saves up to 95% of the energy required to make aluminium from its raw materials. Moreover, this self-heating can, unlike less efficient products available, produces only natural by-products; water and calcium carbonate, the very same mineral that constitutes natural coral reefs. Calcium carbonate is also widely used in environmental protection applications such as drinking water treatment and the neutralization of acid rain in forests and lakes.

Hot-Can was developed in Malaysia by Dato’ Kenneth Kolb, CEO of Hot-Can Malaysia Sdn Bhd, and is manufactured in Kuala Lumpur. Hot-Can Sdn Bhd has spent RM20 million and 5 years developing the hottest product on the planet. Hot-Can Sdn Bhd has chosen to launch its revolutionary product with only Halal ingredients. This demonstrates the huge influence of the Halal market on emerging technologies. Hot-Can is not only the first Halal self-heating container, it is the only Halal self-heating container in the world.

“We certify every aspect, from the self-heating container to the ingredients used in the beverage mix, even the water we use is Halal.” Beverages currently available include caffe latte, hot chocolate, mocha and hot tea. Hot-Can Sdn Bhd project sales of over 1 billion cans per annum in the Halal market alone, and recently signed an exclusive distribution agreement for Turkey, the largest Muslim market in Europe.

Hot-Can continues to develop innovative new products such as the self-heating baby formula smart packaging with built-in infant teat for parents on the go and a range of Halal soups.
