Because the demand for ﬂavored vitamin water is
growing at record levels,, Norland International has
developed a unique “ﬂavored vitamin water” system to
help small to medium-sized bottlers make more proﬁts!
Norland’s system allows an operator to easily add
ﬂavored water and ﬂavored vitamin water to their
company’s product line.
Sales of nutrient-enhanced drinks in the United States
have more than tripled in the past ten years according to
new research from the Beverage Marketing Corporation.
In the spring of 2007,The Coca-Cola Company announced
that it would purchase Glaceau, the maker ofVitamin
Water, for $4.2 billion in cash.
The acquisition was planned well in advance, as Coke
pursued Glaceau,to upgrade its portfolio of noncarbonated
beverages - the sales of which have been growing much
faster than carbonated soft drinks in recent years.
According to the publication “Business Insights”; between
2004 and 2007 the beverage industry has seen an overall
growth in bottled water of over 12% with the strongest
rate of growth in the vitamin and fruit ﬂavored bottled
Studies show that the category has grown by more
than 500% over that same period.The increase has
predominantly been driven by consumers switching from
sugary carbonated drinks to healthier ﬂavored bottled
From an international perspective, the sales of ﬂavored
waters in Nigeria,grew over 20% in 2009 and are expected
to boom to an amazing 140% over the next 5 years
according to “Euromonitor International’s” latest report.

mix and protect the formulation and prepare it for
delivery to the bottle ﬁller.

Custom and Clear Flavors:
Available for a one time formulating fee of $3,500 each
Each ﬂavor will be packaged with all contents required
for ﬁnal product. We start with “standardized formula-
tions” – that is, the mix will contain the recommended
amounts of vitamins, ﬂavor and sweetener.
Production Start-up Quantity:
We recommend that a customer who is new to ﬂavored
water start out with a minimum of three different
ﬂavors and 10 batches of mix per ﬂavor / 30 batches.
In order for an operator to ﬁll ﬂavored water,“Gravity
Fill Technology” must be utilized.
• Each Pre-Mixed batch of ingredients produces up to 1,000
gallons (3,750 liters) of FlavoredVitamin Water.
• Each 1000 gallon (3,750 liters) batch produces up to
7,500 / 500 ml. bottles of product.
• CIP Chemicals used to clean and disinfect the systems after
production. CIP is deﬁned as “Clean-in-Place”, which means
your system does not need to be completely disassembled
in order to disinfect the interior contact surfaces of the
equipment. (20 CIP processes per 5 gallon bucket – minimum
4 buckets) = $40.00.
• Each FlavoredVitamin Water Pre-mix batch for 1,000 gallons
= $448.00; Minimum order - 30 batches (3 ﬂavors of 10
batches each) = $13,440.
• Initial Equipment cost is approximately = $39,464.00.
• Recommended Testing Equipment to comply with standards
• Estimated ingredients cost to produce each 500 ml. bottle of
FlavoredVitamin Water = $0.059 ($448/7,500).
• Estimated time to mix each batch – approximately 30 minutes.
• Estimated time to clean and disinfect system - approximately 60 minutes.
• If running continuous ﬂavor, cleaning procedures are not required. Only
when ﬂavors are changed or shifts are complete is cleaning necessary.
• Note: Flavors are available with no coloring (clear) for an additional fee.
