R e s t a u r a n t D a i l y N e w s 1 1 1 S a t u r d a y, M a y 2 1 , 2 0 1 6 iSi Professional Charger, delivering up to 20 percent more portions for whipped foods, resulting in up to a 20 percent savings on ingredients and han- dling without sacrificing quality or taste. Will switching to professional charg- ers require an additional investment? Absolutely not! New iSi Professional Chargers are used with the iSi Whippers foodservice professionals already own and love, and now they deliver even more value per food dollar. A café using a quart sized iSi Whipper to top 30 coffee drinks with two ounces of whipped cream will now be able to top 36 beverages using the new iSi Professional Charger. And now, non- dairy foods can be whipped up with bet- ter results using iSi Professional chargers too. The increase in portions also reduces calories and fat per serving. This is par- ticularly significant for chain restaurants and their calorie count listing. "This shows the restaurant is caring about its customers and what they're serving," says Jeanette C. Brick, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at iSi North America. "The idea of farm-to-table has expanded into recognizing healthy food preparations, and we see restaurants striving to improve the health conscious- ness of their menus. They want to avoid processed foods." Better still, iSi Professional Chargers enable the whippers to whip a greater range of products, such as lower fat creams that often cost less, or non-dairy coconut creams, popular among vegan customers. iSi Whippers are used by ice cream iSi No rth A merica (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) shops, cafes, restaurants and pastry chefs for topping desserts and coffee. But at least half the users fall into the modernist cuisine camp that have discovered an amazing array of creative applications at their fingertips. Chefs make light and fluffy espumas, sweet and savory creams, soups, desserts and sauces while mixolo- gists have found the perfect tool for rapid infusions and cocktail toppings. Refresher: An iSi (say "E-C") whip- per is a stainless steel canister with acces- sories for dispensing whipped foods, or for creating rapid infusions. An iSi Cream Charger (N20) introduces the exact amount of gas needed to whip up foods such as fresh whipped cream and espumas. iSi North America was established in the United States in 1977. The iSi Group, parent company of iSi North America, iSi GmbH, and their related companies was founded in Vienna, Austria in 1964. iSi Group is the largest manufacturer of cream and food whippers, soda siphons and its respective chargers. For over 50 years, the company has led the way as an innovator in whipper and gas charger technology. iSi continues to set the stan- dards for safety and consistency in deliv- ering perfect results for chefs, baristas, bartenders and food enthusiasts. Star chefs are demonstrating their artistry with the new iSi Professional Chargers throughout the day. Expect Chef Aaron Lirette of GreenRiver, Chef Ashley Simone of Maison Cuisine and Mixologist Al Klopper of FIG Catering to wow you with their imaginative cre- ations.

Armed with a new mission, a new strategic plan and new momentum, NASDA will be taking a clos- er look at the partnerships it can leverage to address current and upcoming challenges to American agriculture. NASDA grows and enhances agriculture by forging partner- ships and creating consensus to achieve sound policy outcomes between state departments of agriculture, the federal gov- ernment and stakeholders. NASDA kicked off celebrations of its 100th anniversary in February at its Winter Policy Conference in Washington, DC. It also launched a "100 Days of NASDA" social media cam- paign on National Agriculture Day (March 15) in celebration of how NASDA's efforts have advanced agricul- ture in the states. The understanding of the direct connection that American agri- culture plays in the global food and nutri- tion arena has grown extraordinarily in the past century. This is evident through our diverse and successful American Food Fair at the National Restaurant Show, which allows small businesses focused on value-added food products to either take a dip or make a huge splash in the global marketplace. Good food does not exist without good policy. NASDA will work with a spectrum of partners to advance its poli- cy priorities in 2016. Implementing the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and funding for states will continue to be a top priority for NASDA. NASDA com- NA SDA (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) mends Congress for taking a critical step in the implementation process by invest- ing $104.5 million in FDA's food safety budget. NASDA will continue to be fully engaged in partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure successful implementation of this new preventive approach to food safety. "Educate before you regulate," has become a key message for NASDA, and it will continue to focus on food safety for years to come. NASDA will continue to focus on pollinator health and advance State Managed Pollinator Protection Plans (MP3s) during its 100th year. NASDA recently partnered with the USDA, EPA and the Honeybee Health Coalition to host a stakeholder symposium on the development of MP3s to ensure informed and workable solutions for protecting bee health are developed and embraced by growers, beekeepers, applicators and the agricultural stakeholder community at large. Finally, it will be agriculture that carries the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) across the finish line. The agree- ment, which is pending passage by Congress, would reduce tariffs and other trade barriers, open foreign mar- kets to U.S. goods and services and establish robust, science-based rules for trade among countries representing 40 percent of global GDP. TPP will yield huge results for the exhibitors of the American Food Fair and NRA Show collectively.

Vegas, Nevada, and has been in business for more than 30 years with a unique method of cup imprinting that has pro- pelled printed cups to a whole new level. Launching the world's first high-defini- tion convolute cups, Visstun's state-of- the-art technology has eclipsed traditional cup imprinting methods by first printing high-quality images on flat sheets and then forming them into cups on custom engineered machinery. The result is a visually stunning line of custom cups and containers for every occasion that are sure to leave a lasting impression. This year at the NRA Show, Visstun is introducing seven new container sizes and two fry scoop cups to a line that now includes 10 containers in 23 different sizes. These new containers, which range from a cute three-ounce cup to a short 32-ounce cup, in addition to the nine drink cups in the previous line and four FoldTop ® sizes, are great for sam- pling, deli, soup and even soft-serve ice cream. Each container size is now also available in a new microwave paper material that differs from most other paper materials on the market because the containers will withstand use, not just in the microwave, but in the refrig- erator and freezer as well. Visstun's unique capabilities allow you to order custom printing in small quantities for start-up volumes. High- definition graphics will give your con- tainers stunning visual appeal, and you V isstun (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) can have them just one to two weeks after placing your order of less than 50,000 units. No more placing huge orders of your container supplies far in advance of when you need them so you can get an affordable price and then warehousing them. "Low minimum quantities and low cost of art charges allow your company to keep a fresh look and update artwork on a regular basis," said Joe Davis, Sales Director. "Multiple art versions can be printed at the same price as one version allowing numerous products and/or serv- ices to be featured." These container solutions are ideal for foodservice vendors looking to take a product into the retail market. High- quality, high-definition full-color print- ing will make your product stand out on retailers' shelves. Low minimum orders and short lead times reduce your barri- ers to entry into the market and Visstun's outstanding customer service will ensure that your orders are com- pleted correctly and delivered to your satisfaction. "Above all, our customer service is beyond compare with daily follow up on your orders if needed," said Joe Davis, Sales Director.

Our customers are our business." For more information, visit booth #9719. After the show, visit www.visstuncups.com.
