A Slovenian company, specialised in manufacturing material (fermentation jars and kits) for making kefir and cheese at home, is looking for supplier of bottles made out of borosilicate glass with a wide mouth and leak proof lid (BPA free plastic) for different cultures. A supplier agreement will be signed.



The client is a small Slovenian company established in 2014. They started as a small start-up in Slovenia but they fast expanded in the foreign countries and are currently present in England, France, Spain and Portugal and on Australian market. At the time, the young team developed an innovative and simple consumer friendly product, a kefir making jar that is easy to use.
After extensive research and exhaustive interaction with the community an idea for a new product was born – a cheese maker, capable to produce a variety of microbiota rich cheese types (mascarpone, mozzarella, ricotta, etc.).
Kefir drink originated in the Caucasus, Eastern Europe and Russia, where it is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains since 19th century. In comparison to other dairy product it is very rich with microbiota, minerals, vitamins and essential amino acids.
Furthermore, a fermented drink contains very little lactose, so people with lactose intolerance are also able to consume and tolerate it without significant inconveniences or complications. To sum up, the company is offering two main products; kefir maker and cheese maker. With addition of adequate dried or fresh microbiota cultures and a recipe book, it is quite simple to assemble and offer simple kits for an end customer.

The company performed intern study regarding the financial costs and they came to conclusion that it would be financially more suitable to buy this type of bottles from manufacturers or companies that already are distributing them.

The company is searching for supplier of 100-150mL bottles made out of borosilicate glass with a wide mouth and leak proof lid (BPA free plastic) for furter distribution of cultures with milk and water kefir grains.

Partners from EU and beyond should sign supplier agreement.
