On July 26, Chinese beverage giant Genki Forest participated in the second China International Consumer Products Expo (CICPE) in Haikou, southern China’s Hainan Province. During the event, the company showcased its new products: cola-flavored bubble water and the R1 intelligent freezer.
Genki Forest was established in 2016. At present, its sales network has covered all of China and more than 40 countries and regions globally, such as the United States, Australia, Singapore and Indonesia.
At the CICPE, Genki Forest brought consumers a new product – cola-flavored bubble water – which is expected to go on sale in August.
This new product was developed by Genki Forest over the course of three years, and has undergone thousands of taste evaluations. Compared with the traditional sugar-free Cola, this product uses more natural ingredients in an effort to improve the taste. The company has removed phosphoric acid and chemical preservatives such as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate.
A company spokesperson stated: “The taste evaluation is a very important link in product research and development. This time, we showed this link in the exhibition, hoping to get more feedback from consumers and help us create more good products that meet consumer expectations.”
In addition to new beverage, Genki Forest also brought a new generation of intelligent vending machines with independent intellectual property rights: the R1 intelligent freezer.
The R1 intelligent freezer integrates new technologies such as IoT, AI algorithms, image recognition and big data analysis. At present, there are 21 patents under application for R1, of which invention patents account for more than 70%.
The R1 intelligent freezer supports the OTA upgrade for its intelligent system, temperature control, lighting, voice interaction, and AI algorithm.
Genki Forest has deployed a processor with 2 trillion computing power per second on the smart cabinet. Based on edge AI hardware, it has developed an advanced AI algorithm integrating edge and cloud, which reduces traffic transmission by 90%. The technology reduces operating costs and improves settlement speed, making the consumer shopping experience smoother.
