Our family has a long history of soft drink and beer production. My great-great grandfather, Julius Lehrkind, came to Bozeman, Montana in 1895 to produce beer, and eventually grew his brewery to 40,000 barrels a year. In 1914 we were approached by Coca-Cola because we “knew how to put liquid in a bottle,” and not only acquired a Coca-Cola franchise, but were contracted to produce Coca-Cola and other soda flavors until 2014. Coca-Cola also entrusted us to produce Dasani water, which ultimately left us with a world class water processing plant and co-packing water processes used today.
Give us a call or email to learn more about co-packing in Montana with us.
