The drink industry (also known as the beverage industry) produces drinks, in particular ready to drink products. Drink production can vary greatly depending on the product being made. ManufacturingDrinks.com explains that, "bottling facilities differ in the types of bottling lines they operate and the types of products they can run". Drinks may be canned or bottled (plastic or glass), hot-fill or cold-fill, and natural or conventional.
