Resource Guide: Working with a Co-Packer

(0 reviews)
$30.00
Bringing your specialty food product to market is a costly endeavor. Equipment, insurance, and ingredients can all be daunting expenses when shifting from making a product on a small scale to increasing volume. Co-packing is a common option for businesses interested in breaking into specialty foods—or expanding with new products or certifications—without high upfront investment costs. Using a co-packer allows the company to focus on growing the business while the co-packer does what it does best.
However, companies must individually assess the trade-offs of using a co-packer, including use of time and capital in running a facility versus giving over control of manufacturing the product. In “Working with a Co-Packer,” a new resource guide from the Specialty Food Association, manufacturers who have flourished using co- packers, as well as those offering co-packing services, share their insights on how to do it well, ultimately creating a profitable, strategic relationship for both parties.
