View Full Version : Guarana soft drink bottling plant

Brand new to this game.
Have been looking at a very small plant who bottles a soft drink from guarana concentrate.
What does the smart money have to say about such a purchase as this. Is this the way to go or not?

Would appreciate experienced insight.

Is there anyone out there that knows this soft drink and is willing to give some input.
This deal is close and I need some help.

I would like to thank all of the beverage knowledgable people out there for all their help in this matter.
You can all please kiss my ass.

Thank you,

Woo hoo! :cool:

Nobody here claimed to be an expert, buddy. Besides, who goes to a Internet fan-type board asking for business advice. Sheesh.

Seeing as far as I know no co-packer actually specialises in a specific ingredient I would suggest the following.

Find yourself a can manufacturer (Ball for example), ask them if they can recommend a co-packer that fills the can/bottle size you want to have your drink in. Once you have your co-packer ask them if they can recommend a flavour company to supply you with all the ingredients.

That's probably the best way to go.

I wouldn't ask any of those three to kiss your ass though or you may find yourself asking everyone at BevNet to do it to you again.

As far as all of us kissing your ass, we would either catch something or your cheeks would become a bit sore :eek:
