Most beverage consulting companies only focuses on one aspect of a beverage lifecycle: formulation, development, production, distribution, marketing, or sales. Some are even more focused, concerned with drink label designs, beverage packaging, and bottling or syrup production. Most lifecycle consultants are involved in beverage management.
