View Full Version : Producing some samples

07-06-2004, 01:59 PM
I am in the early stages of producing a juice drink. I am now looking to produce a sample run so that I can show all of my distribution contacts a sampling so I can finance an actual product run.
Any ideas on how to go about this. Including a lab to formulate the drink for a bottler. I already own the trademark and other important branding aspects and this product has tremendous potential.

I would suggest you contact a prospective co-packer; they should be able to recommend or refer you to a lab that will develop your formulation for large scale production. Some co-packer have their own lab. After that, either the lab or the co-packer should be able to scale up some samples. A suggestion: get your act together before you contact a co-packer, i.e. detailed business plan, they are continuously solicited by people wanting to market their wonderful beverage and you must show them you are serious. Be prepared to spend some $ for R&D.

Let me subjest that you get Coke or Pepsi to bottle your product in New York. One more thing make your drink unique - not an imitator ;) .

If you need labels, contact me. We specialize in pressure sensitive labels and some co-packers have the ability to apply that kind of label. It certainly gives a more upscale look. Check out products like Aspen Pure Water, Izze, Arizona Rx, Steaz, and Tradewinds Teas to name a few. Good luck

Does anyone know of a good resource to find a co-packer for a cold-filled juice from concentrate, HDPE bottle and sleeve labeling capability?
