I am an icb customer

Contract Development Manufacturing

A little clarity

In 1998 when ICB opened its own production division in Middlesbrough, it allowed for complete control of development, production and bottling processes. We create and package products for the drinks industry; think of us as the people who get your products ready for market by doing all the things that drinks companies aren’t always equipped to do.

We are passionate about our work and we like to think that we do things extremely well. However don’t just take our word for it; we are fully accredited by Tesco, Morrisons, Lidl and Beam Global. We are also extremely proud to be Double A Grade British Consortium Accredited and we operate from a HMRC approved bonded site.

 

Quick to react

We offer new liquid development or complete packing services to the grocery multinationals, small chains as well as privately-owned companies an entrepreneurs. The fact that we are a streamlined, British independent gives us the edge.

Trends in the drinks industry are constantly changing and so with our approach, we have the ability to react quickly and turn around new products and packaging in a timely manner.

 

Transparency is everything

Here at ICB, we always endeavour to find the exact solution for our customers as we have a clear understanding of the drinks category. With integrity running through all channels of our business, we do what we say we will do by setting clear goals and objectives and constantly measuring our performance, making changes as required.

 

You're safe in our hands

For such a streamlined operation, our team is small and hands-on. There are 20 staff at our Harrogate office and a further 75 in Middlesbrough. This site houses liquid development, process and packaging, material procurement, technical support and QA.

In the production facility you'll find three glass bottling lines and one bag in the box line. Each year, we produce around 12 million bottles of drinks across nearly 150 SKUs. The packaging formats range from 200ml volumes to 10 litres.

We have the capability to handle bulk spirit and can handle a variety of fermented liquids including grape, pear, apple and beer. On-site storage facilities stand at over half a million litres, with vessels ranging from 5,000 up to 10,000 litres. Whatever you require, we guarantee the responsible development, production and distribution of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

 

Our glass is always half full

At ICB we are all about team spirit. We are proud of our colleagues who, in turn, are proud to be part of our success story. The average age here is 43 years, with 8 years average length of service. Our production site continues to be a non-unionised site and our 0.94% unauthorised absence rate speaks volumes.

Such is the enthusiasm of our workforce, we often think we should bottle it. Now there's an idea...
