With Plus Together With As Well As And
I often travel Monterrey Mexico City Tijuana and Guadalajara checking retail accounts like supermarkets. Their first comment was "Wow look at all this soda"! I m talking about pallet after pallet on the retail floor filled with soda water tea new age beverages water and every type of beverage you can imagine. Not just in Pallets shelve after shelve filled with beverages not just 6 feet tall in some hallways up to 12 feet tall. Beverage exports to Mexico are underrepresented with a mere $147 000 000 per year being exported from the USA to Mexico. This shows a Trade Deficit of $2 Billion Dollars in Beverage worth of good. Now this is the "declared value" and not wholesale or retail value of goods that s much higher. Selling beverages to Mexico is easier than ever especially exporting from the USA.
Horchata or Rice and Almond Beverage My recipe for Horchata is as follows. Soak three tablespoons of rice in water for 4 hours. Rinse the rice well and drain then place in a blender with 3 tablespoons of raw unhulled sesame seed 3 inches of true cinnamon stick and 3 tablespoons of almonds either whole or soaked and peeled. The use of almonds cinnamon and sesame together in this beverage is so typical of Guatemalan flavors. This mixture is blended until all ingredients are very fine. Strain the liquid into a pitcher and add in 2 more cups of water or milk if preferred. Sweeten to taste starting with a couple of tablespoons of sugar and add as needed. In essence Horchata is a sweetened nut and seed milk similar to the touted health drinks being sold here in the US over 40 years later.
The loading and unloading of bottles may differ with some using automated equipment and others using manual labor and the water treatment used may vary depending on the source. But the rinse fill cap and label applications will almost always be similar to those noted above. Using this basic bottled water system as the norm we can look at some other popular beverages and the differences that are required when it comes to packaging machinery. CARBONATED DRINKS Carbonated beverages may present the biggest deviation from what we term the norm for this article. The unique filling machine used for carbonation is known as a counter pressure filler. In general terms the counter pressure filler will pressurize the container being filled and replace oxygen with CO2 to keep a beverage fizzy. Adding carbonation to a beverage will normally require a carbonator and a chiller as low temperatures are also a necessity for carbonation. Other packaging machinery may vary as well as carbonated beverages are more likely to use a variety of different bottle or can materials come in various sizes and use different closures.
