As sales of private
label products continue to grow, retailers looking to take advantage of
opportunities in this expanding segment of the beverage market are turning
to American Beverage Depot.

design team. We can develop flavors. We can co-pack products for customers.

American Beverage Depot, a newcomer to the U.S.
market, has a strong history beginning in Argentina in 1978, where it is
known for its command of the wine industry with 40 percent market share.
Its international experience offers customers ethnic juices and soft drinks
at competitive prices.
With its brand-new, state-of-art $19-million
manufacturing plant in Miami, American Beverage Depot offers its customers
a real advantage in fulfilling all of their retail private-label juice
“We have a state-of-the-art manufacturing
center that we believe is second to none in the United States,”
Stuart says. “We can manufacture Tetra Pak in a 1-liter box, we can
manufacture water in the PET bottles. We blowmold our own bottles, which is
very unique. We have our own labels, and can apply our own labels. There
are a lot of advantages to our efficiencies, which ultimately give a higher
quality standard and a lower competitive price.”
American Beverage Depot offers private label and full
packing services with its PET soft drink and water lines, Tetra Pak juice
line, and multiple-package can line.
Served in a 1-liter Tetra Pak box, its Goliath nectar juices
feature 20 to 30 percent juice and 100 percent vitamin C. “These
are high quality. They’re true juices, ethnic drinks from Argentina, but
at the same time they relate very well to the U.S. market,” Stuart says.
American Beverage Depot also plans to introduce Aloha Springs water, which will
be positioned as a high-quality, value-priced water. BI
