Obtaining the necessary licenses and permits

In order to legally operate a kombucha brewery, you will need to obtain the necessary licenses and permits. This can involve applying for a food production license, health permit, as well as any other licenses or permits that may be required by your state or local government.  Be sure to research the specific requirements and to allow sufficient time for the application process.  It is important to research and comply with the local, state, and federal regulations, to avoid legal problems and fines.

  • Identifying the relevant authorities

  • Identifying the licenses and permits you need

  • Researching the requirements and standards

  • Determining the requirements for obtaining licenses and permits

  • Submitting the applications and fees

  • Following up on applications and approvals

Selecting & purchasing (or leasing) the necessary equipment

In order to produce kombucha, you’ll need to purchase or lease the appropriate equipment.  This can include kettles, fermentation tanks, bottling and labeling equipment, and other specialized tools and machinery.  Be sure to research the different options, compare prices and features, and carefully evaluate the cost-benefit of purchasing versus leasing.

Building out the brewery

In all likelihood you will need to do some remodeling of your space to accommodate its new use as a brewery.  It’s important to what the code requirements and permitting requirements are before you sign a lease and before you start building.  Remember the old adage to measure twice so you only have to cut once?

Establishing a supply chain

Your kombucha brewery will require a steady supply of raw materials, such as tea, sugar, water, and starter culture, to produce high-quality kombucha.  You should establish a robust and reliable supply chain, to ensure that you have access to the raw materials and resources that you need, to produce high-quality kombucha.  You should research and compare different suppliers, to choose the ones that can provide you with the best quality, price, and service.

  • Identifying the raw materials, key ingredients, and supplies needed for your production
