Beverages > Soft drinks

Consumption of soft drinks, in their different variations, is a part of our lifestyle. Each country, each community, has its own consumption habits and their flavour preferences. People’s present geographic mobility and the fact that they want to maintain their lifestyle, allows us to find products in our supermarket shelves that were impossible to imagine some years ago.

Each group of people has its own consumption needs for beverages, even if they want to quench their thirst or to take them during a social event. The market offers, under the generic concept of “functional beverages” (e.g. for sportspeople, for people with special food needs, for controlling the number of calories) different products each day, and this is an opportunity for most manufacturers in more dynamic markets.

As a result of our presence in emergent markets, Cosmos anticipates these demands, and we can offer not only flavours and recipes for different types of beverages, perfectly adapted to the taste of each community but also formulae of all type of functional beverages.

Cosmos knows well about concentrates, juices and compounds, natural colorants and their stability problems, vitamins and mineral salts, stabilizers for beverages and sweeteners, the changes that occur with each type of pasteurization, and the interactions with the containers, and of course, we know each legal regulations applied for soft drinks, but we are sure that flavour is the decisive factor for choosing in a market where the consumer has many alternatives for every product.

With all that information we can suggest and collaborate with innovating proposals that can easily adapt to your market, for the concept of the beverage, its flavour and its cost, all with the guarantee of your experience, which allows us to offer prototypes without long studies nor complicated stability tests.
