Award winning UK healthcare company specialised in solutions to overcome dehydration urgently requires a supply of disposable, biodegradable or recyclable, anti microbial resistant beverage pouches and drinking tubes. Partners are sought under a manufacturing or distribution agreement.
The South West UK company was established after the founder suffered dehydration following spinal surgery and months of restricted mobility.
The company's flagship product has been widely adopted by the National Health Service in the UK, private hospitals, care homes and sports professionals and is recognised as having a major impact in reducing dehydration, associated costs and improving healthcare outcomes. The company has won the prestigious Queens Award for Enterprise Innovation and other well known UK industry awards.
Manufacturers of disposable biodegradable or recyclable, anti microbial resistant drinking pouches and drinking tubes are urgently sought. The pouches must conform to the following specification:
• 1-1.5 litre capacity
• A minimum 30mm diameter input for liquid via a screw or zipper at the top of the pouch
• An exit point with hose barb or similar connection
• 1 meter long drinking tube with bite valve which will connect to the hose barb
Ideally manufacturers or suppliers capable of supplying both the drinking pouch, tube with bite valve are sought. However separate partners will be considered.
An initial order of 2000 units is required. Considerable increase in order volumes is anticipated to meet product demand.
Partners are sought for manufacturing or distribution agreements.
The various components must be:
• Made from biodegradable or recyclable material
• Be anti microbial resistant
• Pouch needs to have 1-1.5 litre liquid capacity with 30mm diameter input via a screw or zipper at the top and an exit with hose barb or similar connection
• Drinking tube must be 1 meter long with bite valve and connect to the hose barb
It is expected that the potential provider of the drinking system will have expertise in producing packaging for the food, health or medical sector and can offer quantities to meet the needs of the UK company.
Either manufacturers or distributors who are able to supply beverage pouches and drinking tubes are sought. Partners must be able to meet the technical requirements and volumes requested by the company. Partners must be reliable and flexible and be interested in a long term commercial relationship.
