SEB specialises in the manufacture and packaging of craft drinks. Founded in 2013 by Duncan Sambrook, Eddie Gadd and Robert Wicks, our team have a combined industry experience of over 40 years. Our state-of-the-art facility is SALSA accredited and we offer enhanced packaging solutions for craft drinks across a wide range of different sizes and shapes of can, bottle and keg. As craft drinks manufacturers ourselves, we understand the importance of looking after the liquid as if it were our own and the risk you take when you hand it over to a packager. We offer the professionalism of an experienced drinks packager to design solutions for new products, packages or routes to market ensuring the end product has the quality and impact that our customers demand.

Successful packaging starts with optimal storage and conditioning. All craft drinks packaged on our site are chill conditioned -1° C to preserve shelf life and stabilise the drinks. Once stabilised, we offer a variety of filtration methods from sterile filtration to unfiltered including bottle conditioning with a choice of yeast.
Our careful checks throughout the storage and chill conditioning phase ensure that the craft drinks packaged has good shelf life with consistent carbonation and haze levels specific to the craft drink being packaged.
The flexibility of our packaging also extends to labelling, where we are capable of offering full wrap, front back and neck or full wrap and neck combinations for bottles.
Our labelling service is also available for cans.
The quality of the label can have a huge impact on the end product and we can recommend a number of high quality, cost effective labellers who can assist in producing unique labels for the craft drink maker.
End of line packaging can be selected and includes cases of 12 or 24, 330ml, cases of 12 500ml and cardboard boxes, before palletisation and shipping.
