Help please! : )

I make a mean Bloody Ceasar mix and I would like to bottle it for sale.  However, as difficult as it was to even find a recipe for preserving juice most use canning jars - probably not as marketable as bottles.  Another recipe I found used a bottle, BUT it required refrigeration?  I'd like to be able to sell these for pantry storage.  I would consider using a professional bottler but I'm not finding any in the Seattle area.  Can anybody help? 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

When you were looking for a company to bottle your delicious mix, did you search using the key word "copacker?"  It's often the industry term for a company that uses your recipe to create your product with a reasonable shelf life.  The biggest drawback is that you have to be willing for fork over the investment money, because most runs are usually something serious, like 1,000 bottles.

Thank you jamlady!

No, that is not a term I searched under.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif   I searched under so many other terms though!  Thanks for the hint.  I kind of figured it wasn't going to be cheap.  I did look at purchasing bottling equipment (even used) but without knowledge of how to safely bottle it was pointless.  It seems like there should be some standard scientific criteria readily available to do this, but if there is I haven't found it. I'll search on this term though...thank you again!
