There are a few items I need to clarify before I continue to work on
your question.

1. What type of food product will be placed in the bottles?

2. What shape bottle do you need? Please look at the following link
and tell me if this type of bottle would be acceptable if it was in
the right size:

3. Some of the manufacturers would likely want to negotiate with you
directly concerning a price quote. Would this be acceptable in an
answer? It is difficult for me to negotiate a price when I am not
involved in the business.

4. In what country are you based? Are you willing to negotiate with
foreign manufacturers?

5. Are there companies you have already contacted that I can rule out?

Please also look at these two samples:

You have not mentioned anything about lids, either. Therefore, I am
assuming you are looking for a price quote on bottles without the
lids. Is this correct?

The bottle style we’d like to see similar to what most liquors are
bottled in, not water bottle style.  They will need to have twist off
tops with a tamper evident tear off.

We are located in the U.S. but have dealt with Canadian manufacturers
in the past with success.

We have not contacted any manufacturers at this time.

We would be able to negotiate pricing on our own once we have received
a list of viable candidates, preferably a list of at least 10

A liquid beverage additive will be packaged in the bottles

Are you looking for a bottling company -- that is, a facility that
will bottle your product for you?  Or are you looking to buy the
bottles yourself and do your own bottling?

The reason I ask is that -- if you do the bottling yourself -- I'm not
sure you can have tamper-resistant or tamper-evident twist off tops
without having access to specialized equipment.

If you can give a bit more detail about how you intend to fill and cap
10,000 bottles, perhaps I can find an appropriate source of bottles
for you.


Clarification of Question by select51-ga on 07 Jul 2003 13:35 PDT
We have a manufacturing facility that will do the bottling.  The caps
will have to be packed separately from the bottles, but we will need
to purchase both bottles and caps.

Yes PET is the same.  The company you included appears that they do
make what we need.  Again we are looking for multiple
vendors/manufacturers of these items.

Hello again,

Thank you for confirming that Amcor appears to make what you are
looking for.  I've listed below most of the major suppliers of
food-grade and CSD (carbonated soft drink) grade PET/PETE bottles in
the U.S. and Canada.  I'm sure several of them will have the products
you need; information on prices was not readily available, however.

I like to provide all my customers with the best answer possible, so
please let me know -- through a Request for Clarification -- if you
need any additional information to meet your needs.

Hello again,

I just wanted to check in and see how things were working out.  Are
you finding all the information you needed, or is there anything else
I can do to assist you here?

Let me know, if you have the chance.

select51-ga rated this answer:3 out of 5 stars
A better rating could possibly be given should the companies listed
prove to have what we need, at this point we do not know.

 After a disappointing few hours ofcontacting several manufacturers, I
have had little luck. Therefore, I am leaving one suggestion as a
comment. If this manufacturer can create a bottle with the cap you
require for you at a reasonable price, I would be happy to hear!


Pechiney Plastic Packaging (only a message machine at 800 number)
8770 West Bryn Mawr Ave.
Chicago, IL 60631
Telephone: 773-399-8000

Custom Bottles (Email us or call us at 1 (800) 366-2770)

1. Turnaround Time

We can design and deliver bottles in 8 to 12 weeks. However, we have
produced new style containers from design to first production samples
in as little as six weeks!


They do have a beverage-style bottle similar to what you are seeking,
but the largest size available without being custom-made is 16oz.

Best of luck!
