Beverage—Bottling & Soda

Get it under control.

With continuous shifts in consumer preferences, endless competitive product introductions and societal concerns constantly bubbling up, there are many external factors that test the limits of your control.

Whether you’re affected by these factors or not, it’s important to make sure to do what you can so your profit margins never lose their fizz. But what can you do?

Start by gaining control over your supply of food- and beverage-grade gases and related equipment.


Shake it up

When challenging market conditions arise, we know worrying about what you can’t control is counterproductive. You’ve got to think about how you can improve processes internally. When you partner with Airgas, you get the peace of mind of a consistent supply chain, consolidated expenditures and an increased capacity to do more as we eliminate time-consuming hassles.

As a proven leader in all things gases in North America, we help to improve your organization on many levels with measures tied to safety, including:

  • Reducing costs by consolidating suppliers
  • Managing inventory more effectively
  • Lowering consumable usage while improving product quality
  • Boosting welding efficiency and productivity
  • Advising on increasing OSHA, FDA and USDA compliance
  • Improving freezing, chilling and packaging processes


Get a taste of consistency

When you’re bottling beverages at the factory, your aim is to preserve and enhance flavors while delivering the effervescent experience everyone loves. You need your product to always taste the same—no matter what container your consumers use to drink it.

As the dominant supplier of food- and beverage-grade CO2 to restaurants and bars, Airgas has an influential role in the final outcome of your fountain beverages. If you want your drinks to be consistent from bottle to cup, gas supply cannot be overlooked. You and your dispensers need to be on the same page—with the same quality gas from the same supplier.
