From your idea to commercial beverage.
A great-tasting beverage is your ultimate competitive advantage.
The first step in beverage development is to decide on the functional ingredients. For example, immune-boosting herbs or ingredients in a no-crash energy shot. If your beverage has vitamins, we can advise about their overage—how much extra to add for a longer shelf life.
The next step is to balance the taste of the beverage and then give it the flavor profile that you want. We have a large library of natural flavors that you can choose from.
Process Authority Letter.
The FDA requires a Process Authority letter for most beverages. This is an approval by a specialized laboratory (Process Authority) of the production process that we plan to use to give your beverage a minimum of 24 monthsof microbial stability under ambient storage.
FDA Process Approval.
Before we can manufacture the beverage, FDA also requires us to submit to them this Process Authority Letter. This is not an approval of the product but a review of the manufacturing process to ensure it complies with their safety guidelines. You will get an official certificate that this has been done—most major retailers will ask for this document before they will purchase your beverage.
Your Intellectual Property.
The beverage formula that we develop is your intellectual property. You own the master formula. We also give you a list of the vendors that we used to buy your ingredients, bottles and caps, including prices and contact information.
