Old Cossack's Mighty Brew
Darren and Joanne Molloy from Old Cossack Drinks co have always had an interest in healthy living. In the beginning of 2014 they started Old Cossack Drinks co by selling drinks using their Kefir culture. The Water Kefir is a symbiotic culture of healthy bacteria and yeasts held in a polysaccharide matrix - in simple terms this means it's a fermented beverage with probiotic bacteria and lots of other good stuff.
Darren and Joanne know that good stuff needs great labels so it wasn't long before they found Label Power and started working with our friendly team. As their products grew in popularity they decided to get a revamp on their range. Photo below of their old labels from Label Power before the rebrand. The latest labels look even better and are printed on metallic silver with a soft feel matt overlaminate film, Label Power produced 18 different types within a week and with no plate charges. When starting the business Darren and Joanne also purchased a Primera AP360 applicator to label the many thousands of bottles.
Take care of your body's probiotic needs with Old Cossack Drinks today.
