Cen Bottling Company
CEN BOTTLING Company Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of ODHL. The company manufactures fresh fruit and dairy drinks - Smoothie drinks.
CEN Bottling Company Limited was incorporated on 24th September 1998. Its primary business is the development of and marketing of quality fruit & dairy drinks with no additives, for both white and ethnic target groups. In 1996 Tansi™was developed as a kitchen concept in a family owned Restaurant in Morecambe, in the North West of England. In 1998 the company developed it as a commercial concept “Smoothie” - long-life real fruit and dairy drink. In December 1999, a focus group tasting at the Advanced Food Science Department (now Manchester Food Centre) of Manchester Metropolitan University, described Tansi™as “The Real Smoothie”, with a full flavour bouquet. CEN therefore applied for a patent to secure its unique technology and formulation.
The basic distinction between Tansi™ and other similar products is a combination of ‘real fruit’ with dairy product, not a fruit juice or flavouring. It is also a long-life, stable product, which demonstrates no separation over time. It has no preservatives and is completely distinctive from the competition in this sector in many respects:
1. Product with stable, homogenous consistency.
3. Range of flavours.
4. Low-fat content.
5. No preservatives.
6. High fibre content.

dairy with shelf life of six months, achieved without the use of
All CEN products were developed using carefully sourced
ingredients and have no E-additives. They are sold under the
