I work for a beverage distribution company and have been told by a lot of sales reps and vendors that I should bottle and sell my Kombucha. I've been researching it, and have just about all the info I need. Bottles and closures for pennies a piece, 50lb bags of tea, all the scobys I could ever imagine, label artwork, etc. I was just wondering how to get nutrition facts, what are the rules for "bottle deposits" (we don't have em in Texas), also, how do you "register" a drink to get a barcode. Also, should the health dpeartment be involved because of the type of beverage? Basically, I'm trying to find out how to get it out there, legally. I've already got a distributor and tons of customers lined up (I'm a sales rep for the bev co too and have been telling all of my accounts, as have the other reps). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

CoPackers won't do Kombucha.

Thanks!
