Any owner and operator of a mobile canning operation needs to focus on quality. Brewers put a whole lot of work into their creations, and that quality product deserves a quality fill.
As a Mobile Canner, the filler you choose will ultimately decide the quality of fill you are providing your customers. If options are available an informed customer and smart buyer will choose the mobile canning company that has the better filler. Knowing the benefits of counter pressure fillers versus others will give any mobile canner an edge over the competition.
