    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone knows about how to get into the market of carbonated drinks (sparkling mineral waters etc) i.e. manufacturing, licensing etc.

    I have tried to do some research about how to get into the market but it seems the information is not very clear about how to get it done.

    Any ideas/pointers?

    Thanks in advance,

    Nik

    Hi And Welcome to Flying Solo [USER=111262]@nick4brit[/USER] . It is great to have you!

    Thank you for joining our community and posting today.

    Hi Nik, if you have a formula, you can approach manufacturers and bottlers to produce it for you.

    I am assuming you have researched food standard requirements?

    Let us know what research you have done so far, what budget you have, what ideas you have for inventory, storage and distribution and your ideas around how you will get your product into shops.

    Cheers

    This would be interesting to follow. I bet it’s not clear because the paths businesses take are usually varied.

    You can go to some of the canneries, or alcoa or someone similar and ask them.. There are also massive food/beverage trade shows around the world that sell all sorts of stuff like this, and i am certain that there would also be meany ‘bottlers’ out there that may also be more the term you are looking for?

    Further to that, and note i am not from the industry, you could google food scientists or food and beverage manufacturing and a litany of providers may come up – granted, it may require some sifting, although i am certain the answers may appear on the first few pages…

    Let us know how you get on, sounds interesting…

    Hi Nik

    Sounds interesting.

    Do you want to manufacture and distribute like an Amcor ? or retail like a Coles or Woolies?

    I think you need to narrow down your strategy and really focus on only on activity and do that one thing really well.

    For example, if you are leaning towards retail, Amazon or Ebay may be less capital intensive than manufacturing and require less financing to get going.

    On the flip side – wholesale distribution could open up a whole new range of opportunities in places like China.

    But only choose one speciality – and do that specialty really well.

    Steven
