Production Success Story

One delicious drink leads to a large-scale latte

  • CHALLENGE

    Our customer came to us with a great-tasting, perfectly-flavored latte sample—but with no means to produce it.

  • APPROACH

    With our eager-to-solve, collaborative attitude, we got to work with our customer to determine exactly what was needed to ramp them up to full commercialization and production.

  • SOLUTION

    Our stage-gate process followed the product from beginning to end, through scale-up testing, quick high-volume production runs, and final delivery. We were happy to help bring this tasty idea to life as a viable commercial product, and our customer was pleased to be able to fill their high-volume order on time, as promised.
