Our wheelhouse revolves around product development, business development, branding, graphics & packaging design, commercialization, manufacturing, sales & distribution, and administrative functions.
NCN’s world class team has launched products for global corporate giants, mid size companies and entrepreneurs. No project is too big or too small.
We take your idea from concept to commercialization and ensure it’s manufactured to specification.
We specialize in:
• Development of new category products…
• Optimization of existing products…
• Line extensions…
• Improving cost of goods…
• General technical services…
At NCN, we have a food grade product development lab and pilot plant that was built to comply with the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services specifications.
Inside our lab you will find a vast array of carefully selected flavors that in most cases have been screened for taste, to comply with certain processing parameters and shelf life. In addition we have the finest ingredients to tackle everything from soft drinks, functional sports drinks, protein shakes, fruit & vegetable juices & smoothies, alcohol based drinks and more. Our processing capabilities include hot fill, HTST, tunnel pasteurization, chemical cold fill, powder mixes and are aligned to other facilities for HPP, aseptic processing and larger volume HTST.
We are here to help you navigate through the challenges of making commercially acceptable consumer products. Shelf life testing, cost of goods analysis, labeling & nutritionals, product & package development, and third-party production are some of our key areas of expertise.
In the near future, NCN will be available for “small scale” co-packing which will allow you to test and sell products directly to consumers. This will be great to help you test proof of concept or fine-tuning your favorite products without spending a fortune on inventory.
We can help put all the pieces together!
