Aroma – Smell The Difference
The sense of smell has long been neglected as a means of conveying information about food items. One company from the UK hopes to change this however, as it revolutionizes the packaging and POP areas of retail food vending by introducing aroma to the browsing community.

Therefore, consumers often do not have the opportunity to experience the essence of the product from the shelf.
