Suntory Beer Uses Ripples' Tech to Elevate the Personalized Consumer Experience

Suntory Beer is a Japanese beverage company which places the focus of its business on acquiring new technology to produce a one-of-a-kind drinking experience for its consumers.

Starting this year, Suntory Beer's signature brand -- The Premium Malt's, will boast a custom-friendly quality. Individuals will be able to print their own messages and images onto the foam of their beverages via high-tech machine outposts in key Suntory Beer locations. The technology is developed by Israeli start-up Ripples and it utilizes natural extracts as ink. Taking into consideration that the tech can be used on a number of beverages, Ripples makes a variety of "inks" possible -- from coffee bean extract to malt extracts.

The personalization aspect harbors no extra calories, artificial colors or preservatives.
