The Joseph Company International, based in Irvine, California, USA is the developer, manufacturer, and patent holder of the world’s first and only commercially viable self-chilling beverage can known as the Chill-Can®. The Joseph Company intends to rapidly commercialize the self-chilling beverage can and associated self-chilling beverage packaging containers through private labels and the licensing of the technology to the global beverage world. The Joseph Company is currently constructing a $20 Million Beverage Production and Technology Complex in Youngstown, Ohio, USA which will allow for the production of billions of self-chilling cans and associated containers annually.
The Chill-Can containers are purchased at ambient temperature and chilled when ready to consume. When activated, the patented technology utilizes reclaimed CO2 and the process automatically chills the can and the sparkling coffee beverage inside. The self-chilling can has been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), NASA and the U.S. Army.
“Because the self-chilling can technology is so groundbreaking, we wanted to introduce it with a super innovative beverage,” said Tim Cogil, 7-Eleven Director of Private Brands, whom launched a private label beverage known as FIZZICS with the technology in 2018.
Chilling the can is simple:
- Place the can on a flat surface, turn the can upside down and twist the base to activate until a constant hissing noise can be heard.
- Do not handle or touch the can after activation until the hissing stops. The warmth of being handheld can inhibit the cooling process.
- Do not turn can right side up until hissing stops—about 75 – 90 seconds.
- Once the hissing stops, return the can to an upright position, open, and enjoy!
For more than 60 years, companies have been trying to crack the code on creating a viable, easy-to-use self-chilling can that could be made available to the general public. After more than 25 years in development, the Joseph Company patented the technology behind the world’s first and only chill on-demand can.
The patented Chill-Can® and the MicroCool ® technology created by The Joseph Company International utilizes a built-in heat exchange unit in concert with reclaimed CO2 to create its chilling technology. The EPA award winning process uses CO2 that is recaptured from the atmosphere and is reused. The Chill-Can® is 100 percent recyclable and does not introduce any new CO2 to the atmosphere. The Joseph Company is led by its founder, CEO, and Chairman, Mitchell J. Joseph. Mr. Joseph is the 4th generation of his family, dating back to 1921, with the bottling and distribution of Dad’s Old Fashioned Root Beer and Squirt, to dedicate himself to the beverage business. Educated at Ohio State and Youngstown State University, Mr. Joseph has spent the last 25 years pioneering the Chill-Can® project. Mr. Joseph’s expertise in marketing, public relations, licensing, and finance have led to the Joseph Company International being recognized globally for the technological advancement that is the self-chilling can and all associated self-contained cooling technology advancements.
