From bottled water to sports drinks juices spirits and soda there are a multitude of thirst quenching products on the shelves from which consumers can choose. But the way those products make their way into the bottles can vary depending on a number of different factors. Below are a few of the beverage choices available to the thirsty consumer along with a brief explanation of some of the common machinery used to package the products.

A typical bottle of water will be packaged in a 16.9 ounce clear plastic bottle with a flat screw on cap and a wrap label. Repetition leads to simplicity and efficiency so that many bottled water packaging systems will look nearly identical. Bottle rinsers will be used to remove dust and debris from containers before the filling process in most applications.

They are looking for beverages to sell in retail stores or to other distributors in Mexico most of the time they will buy truckloads and export them to Mexico themselves handling the shipping imports and tariffs. If you travel through the large supermarkets in Mexico you will see how many US products could be selling in Mexico and are not.
