Any business that sells a product to consumers will need to work with a co-packer at one point or another.
Whether it’s a big, established brand that needs to get massive quantities of product packaged and out on retail shelves quickly, or it’s a small team of entrepreneurs that lacks the manpower and resources to get their new item in proper packaging, a co-packer’s job is to fulfill those needs and more.
Contract packaging companies are equipped with the tools, skills, and knowledge to meet special regulations that ensure producers are in compliance and sell a consistent product. Kosher, organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO are all labels that appear on food and beverages out on the market today, and the right co-packer will work closely with various agencies to ensure all packaging provided to their partners meets proper requirements.
Finding, evaluating, and hiring the right contract packager to work with your team can be a challenge. There are numerous co-packing operations out there, but determining which company will view your team as a strategic partner, and is willing to create a working relationship built on trust, can be a daunting task.
