Martek Food Systems’ Offer Confectionery Dispensing Systems


The concept of bulk-dispensing systems is not by any means new to the confectionery retail market. By utilising self-serve bins and purpose-built fixtures, customers enjoy an attractive and appealing ‘destination’ display that encourages them to buy confectionery as an impulse purchase more frequently.


Martek Food Systems can offer confectionery retailers a range of dispensing systems as part of a complete merchandising solution that includes purpose-built fixtures, all created to complement in-store branding. Bespoke modular systems are designed, manufactured and installed for individual retail outlets to make the most of limited shelf and display space.


Hygienic, attractive and user-friendly, Martek Food Systems’ dispensing systems are ideal for a variety of confectionery retailers. Systems can incorporate gravity bins for free-flowing pick ‘n’ mix sweets such as dolly mixture and Smarties, and scoop bins for larger products such as marshmallows and strawberry laces.


All bins are made of crystal clear polycarbonate, which has an impact strength 35 times greater than acrylic, making them scratch-resistant and virtually unbreakable. Easy to clean and refill, the bins keep confectionery fresh and promote first-in, first-out stock rotation.


Mike Elliott at Martek Food Systems says: “Studies have shown there is an ‘impulse effect’ when it comes to self-serve confectionery displays, as customers can see the product, rather than the packaging, and decide exactly how much to buy. By offering a greater variety of confectionery, retailers can benefit from supply chain economies, as well as more efficient stock rotation and improved merchandising appeal. And everyone benefits from reduced packaging and reduced waste.”


Martek Food Systems is the new division of interior solutions specialist Martek, which has been producing high quality bespoke fixtures, fittings and interiors for 30 years to a range of market sectors, including retail, catering, cinema and leisure
