Pearl Sci-Tec Bottling
Pearl Sci-Tec is an FDA local short run bottler/packer licensed by CT Dept. of Consumer protection. We produce foods under the label Nini’s Foods and are also developing a line of vegan variations on traditional meat dishes. We started PSB to act as an incubator for small food startups and restaurants to have affordable resources to help build a brand and to bring more local food products to market. We can provide everything from bottles, labels, ingredients, barcoding, nutritional labeling and more. We have no minimums so we can produce as few as a couple cases keeping initial cost to a minimum.
