The Smartfruit™ pumps are designed to comply with all relevant guidelines for food
dispensing. In order to maximize the pump’s service life and continually serve safe
product, proper maintenance and cleaning are required.
For proper cleaning, disassemble the pump and thoroughly clean all openings in the
valve pump body with a sanitizer that has been approved by your local health
department. Rinse and dry all pieces prior to re-assembling.
The frequency of cleaning the pump depends on use and how quickly the product is
dispensed. Clean the pump every time you switch to a new bottle. If there’s

Can I freeze Smartfruit™ after opening it to extend its shelf life?
Although we recommend to keep your Smartfruit™ in the refrigerator after opening and consume it within 4 weeks, it is possible to freeze your Smartfruit™ for up to 2 months. It has to be sealed and stored at 0 F (-18C) or lower. While Smartfruit™ may not totally freeze due to the high amount of solids in it, it is necessary to thaw it slowly and fully and gently shake it before using it. If not fully thawed, the product may not be uniform and the resulting smoothie may not taste optimal. We recommend consuming Smartfruit™ within 2 months from the freezing date.
Smartfruit™ should be refrigerated once it has been opened, and consumed within four weeks. The shelf life can be extended for up to two months from opening by freezing it at 0 F (-18C) or lower. After freezing, it should be allowed to gradually reach room temperature and shaken vigorously before use.
