The Pilot Scale Production Service that we offer enables us to scale up your custom formulas and iron out potential manufacturing hurdles before moving onto larger scale production. These trial batches can be used for sampling purposes or for soft launches as an interim service, whilst you are in discussions with contract manufacturers.

Our Pilot Scale Production Service has been designed to:

  • Scale up your formulations to 10Kg, 30Kg or 50Kg batches depending on formulation design and product fill size.

  • Using our expertise, we will provide guidance on the best and most economical scale-up protocol for the formulation, helping you to avoid costly pitfalls when upscaling.

  • We have the capabilities to fill and label samples from the batch trials (depending on your packaging requirements).

  • We can offer up to 2 scale-up production batches for each newly developed formulation that has been developed for you by GCD.
