Contract Bottling & Pilot Runs

 

 

 

 

 

Drinks Chef prides itself on not only creating great drinks but being able to manufacture them in house on our number of bottle filling lines.

 

Whether you are looking to launch your 60ml health shot, your bottled cocktail or sports drink we have a filling solution to suit your project. Drinks Chef has the capability to run still and carbonated products with ROPP, Crown and Screw caps.

Pilot Runs:

We offer all development customers and new production clients a Pilot Run to ensure the product hits its method of manufacture and specification requirements before we scale up. 

 

Pilot runs offer the opportunity to run small scale productions, whether it be a 10L run of formulations to showcase your products to investors and buyers or a 500L run to get your new product to market.
