Co-Packers: Want to Sell Your Salsa, Preserves,
Jams, Etc.? Learn About Using A CoPacker to Prepare It!
If you want to make and sell your home-made preserves, salsa,
spaghetti sauce, applesauce, apple butter, jams, jellies, or whatever,
you will need a licensed kitchen to prepare and can the food. That can
be very costly. It is usually much less expensive (and less risky)
for your new business to use a CoPacker to prepare their food, according
to you recipe and process.
What is a co-packer?
Co-packers manufacture and package foods for other companies to sell.
These products range from nationally-known brands to private labels.
Entrepreneurs choose to use the services of copackers for many reasons.
Copackers can provide entrepreneurs with a variety of services in
addition to manufacturing and packaging products. They can often
help in the formulation of the product. The copacker may function
only as a packer of other people?s products or may be in business with
his own product line. They may be, in fact, manufacturing several
competing products. The range of services available from a
copacker will vary depending on the size and experience of the copacker
and the type of facilities and the capacity of their plant.
The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) has
a listing of nearly 700 contract packaging companies (co-packers).
Far too many people feel that a co-packer is a co-packer, and that
any co-packer can do everything. In fact, co-packers have a variety
of specific functional areas in which they excel. The following list
is not all inclusive nor is it meant to serve as an endorsement.
See this page for much, much more about co-packers, like advantages,
disadvantages and how to choose a copacker.
