Food and Beverage Inventors Receive Awards at America’s Largest Invention Show

INPEX®, America’s Largest Invention Trade Show, announced several awards at the closing awards dinner for the 2008 trade show. Inventors Stephen Schreiber, of Red Hook, N.Y., Jeffrey Helmer, of Clayton, N.Y. and Patrick Nichols, of Malone, N.Y. exhibited their inventions June 11-14, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.

The inventions run the gamut from concept to finished product, from high-tech to ‘why didn’t I think of that’ items. Awards were presented in categories ranging from advertising to transportation as well as special awards from corporations and individuals. An international jury judged the inventions. The following individuals won awards in the Food and Beverage Category:

• Stephen Schreiber – Bronze Medal for Fun-L-Top, a funnel-shaped popcorn/snack eating package device that is sanitary and spill-proof.
• Jeffrey Helmer – Silver Medal for Party Cooler, an organized system to keep food cold and safe from harmful germs and spoilage.
• Patrick Nichols – Gold Medal for The Bottle Wizard™, a device that could replace the twist cap on personal-use beverage bottles.
