Do you need a small scale contract bottling solution or pilot testing? We have state of the art equipment for glass bottling.
We have a state of the art contract beverage bottling facility for soft or alcoholic contract manufacturing, specifically deigned to help startup beverage companies and SME’s develop and launch products with reasonable minimum volumes. We are SALSA Food accredited, meaning that products are made under stringent processes and your finished products can be sold into any major retailer.
Its designed to mimic the larger scale soft drink manufacturing process’s, and allow’s our clients to do small scale bottling in the UK. We have invested in machinery that can handle most sizes of glass bottles from 200ml – 500ml using ROPP closures or crown caps. Also available will be pilot bottling for Hot Fill PET using a hot filler that can test recipes by heating to various levels. The beverage manufacturing capabilities are all done on semi automatic bottling lines, designed to be extremely flexible in the types of bottles we can handle, with automatic labelling and capping.
We can bottle as little as 250 litres so you can do consumer testing, shelf life testing or nutritional analysis, and with the process’s mimicking full scale production, allows the testing of recipes and how they react to varying temperatures, carbonation or bottling processes.
Whether you are a startup looking for contract bottling or an established player looking to test your recipes before full production, we can help get your drink manufactured in a professional environment with all quality controls documented. We do alcoholic or soft drinks, but not dairy.
