SH Foodie Scale up Centre

At SH Foodie, we have our very own Beverage Pilot Plant Facility where we can produce cans and bottles of sparkling or still, soft or alcoholic drinks with methods that mirror factory processes. We are also able to fill pouches with liquids or powders.

These are ideal for you to carry out market or product testing or for presentations with Investors or Retailers.

Wait! Have You Considered...

Before you commit to having your beverages produced at your chosen manufacturer, a Pilot / Scale up trial can be extremely beneficial, giving you and your manufacturer the confidence that your product can be made effectively and efficiently.

It also gives you the opportunity to refine your beverage formulation before making a larger quantity. It goes without saying that it is important to ensure that the taste, and quality of the beverage meets consumer expectations.

Trial runs can also help to fine tune the production process, gain valuable product targets and tolerances for confirmation of quality control measures that will ensure consistency and safety of your product once it moves to full scale production.

Many commercial contract manufacturers prefer onboarding customers who have products that have robust recipes with accompanying processing and technical information as this helps them to be sure that they can make your product effectively and to the desired costs.

Scale-Up Trials with SH Foodie are the Ideal Steppingstone

Before moving to full scale production and serve as a critical step in the product development and manufacturing process, ultimately increasing the chances of success in the market.
