With the help of market research, you can decide strategically on introducing size and types of different Mineral water bottles.
2nd Step is to Prepare Profitable and Practical Business Plan
Once you have done market research, the next step is to prepare a business plan and work on that. A business plan is like a Map, once you have understood the Map, it is very easier to go in the right direction with the right speed.
So what should be included in the Mineral water Business plan?
First of All, decide the tentative budget and target Return on investment, what kind of Management team is Required, What kind of Employees and Workers are required, Which legal processes are to be completed, At which location plant to be installed, which kind of machines are required and from which suppliers machines are to be purchased, what marketing strategy to be deployed, what will be the sales plan. These all factors are to be included in the Business plan with Responsible person name and clear cut deadlines.
Once the Business Plan has been drawn on paper, now it is Time to take Massive action i.e. to execute each and every task with great momentum.
3rd Step is to Select Right location for the Mineral water plant
Ideally the location should be near to the market. Your product should be easily reachable to the market. Ensure that enough Volume of raw water and other raw materials are easily available, enough supply of Electricity has to be there. Make sure that you get the right manpower at that location.
4th Step is to select the Right and Appropriate Machines.
This step is very much critical which you need to take after deep thinking. There are some criteria for machine selection which you need to consider.
First of All, decide your production capacity. Capacity should be such that it can fulfil market demand until the next 4 to 5 years. There should be right kind of Automation; it should have a long life and long durability, Easy to operate, Very low in maintenance. You should be able to earn a maximum profit for a long time out of these machines.
Which machines are required for Mineral water plant?
Well, first of all, you require a RO plant which will do water purification, then Automatic Bottle washing filling and capping machine which will pack the bottles automatically, then Bottle Blow Molding machine which will make the empty bottles from the preform, Pouch packing machine which will make Pouches, Jar Washing, Filling and capping machine which will automatically pack the Jars. Batch coding machine which will automatically print the batch on bottles. Apart from these machines, two Quality control laboratories are required for chemical testing and second for microbiological testing of water. Apart from this, you can also install an Auto Labeling machine for applying labels automatically on bottles. Secondly, you also might have seen that people are using Plastic wrapped packing instead of Corrugated Box — for that, you can install Heat Shrink wrapping machine (Web Sealer) and you can reduce packing cost drastically.
Which machines are required for Soft drink plant and Juice plant?
If you are planning for Soft Drink plant then Sugar Syrup Tank, Flavor Tank, PHE, Chilling Unit, Carbonation Unit, CIP, Reverse Osmosis Plant, Automatic Soft drink Soda filling machine, Bottle Labeling Machine, Shrink Wrapping Machine and Bottle Blow Molding machines are required.

In India, ISI certificate is a quality license which is granted by the Bureau of Indian Standards i,e. BIS. My overseas Business friends require licenses as per their respective countries. Each country has different food safety laws. The main goals of these laws are to ensure consumer safety, product quality and nutritional integrity of the final beverages and food products. ISI certificate is a technical process which we have to complete with great preparation –then only we can get ISI license successfully. To get ISI license, 3 to 4 months are required. I will share detailed insights on how to get the ISI license. Once you get the ISI license, your next step is to get the FSSAI license from Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. For that, you have to apply to the local food department. You will get FSSAI license in 15 to 20 days.
7th Step is Marketing and Selling of Bottled Mineral Water
For Growth of Any Business, Marketing and Selling is very important. There are many Effective Marketing strategies for Beverage Business. I will write separate Insightful article on Practical Guides of how to do Marketing and Branding for Mineral water Business.

Salesperson will go through the different stages of selling cycle like lead qualification, need identification, presenting the solutions and closing the lead.
