What is Co-Packing?

In the food and beverage industry, a co-packer (or co-manufacturer) is a company that manufactures and packages products for other companies. Co-packing is also referred to as contract packing or contract manufacturing. Thousands of food producers work with co-packers and meat processors to get their products to market.


Co-packing is often the fastest and most reliable way to take your product from small batch production (or even just a recipe!) to full-scale manufacturing. Experiencing the true benefits of dedicated meat processors requires finding the right co-packer so that you can save on your capital investment, manage your risk, source ingredients at the lowest possible cost, develop a viable product and have it shipped to the shelves of stores filled with hungry buyers.
