Private label food co packers pros and cons

Posted by Damian Robert on

If you are in a food business that means you get to deal with large quantities of food, on a daily basis of course. In order to produce a massive quantity of food, you need to have a large area suitable for food production. If you have a hefty sum of money or revenue, then you are surely going to be able to afford a large production area of your own but if you do not have that kind of cash, then you will be dealing with a Co-Packer.

First, the Co-packer helps you in reducing your startup cost is you plan to produce a massive quantity of food. That too, in case you find the right Co-Packer! By ‘right Co-Packer’, I mean somebody who is able to produce the item that you need with the facility they have. Before you reach out to different Co-Packers, know that there are specific Co-Packers to produce specific food items. Once you have finalized the Co-Packer you want to work with, all you have to do is provide them the list of ingredients, the sources of ingredients and what you want to get done.

 

Next has to be a lead time. When you are dealing with Co-Packers, your lead time i.e time taken for the completion of the food production is significantly reduced. Why? Because the right Co-Packer has everything sorted out for you. The amount of time you take to complete the project is highly important in the food business. It earns you a good name and more orders!

Choosing an experienced Co-Worker who has been in the business for a good number of years can always be beneficial for you. It helps you minimize risks, get the work done faster, and keeps you stress-free. The one who has been in the business for years just know how to get the job done with your provided requirements. Whereas, a new Co-Packer can always be a complete risk.

 

An important point which should be kept in mind is that not every Co-Packeer you would approach be available according to your time requirement. Some of the Co-Packers may not be available at the time you need the order, so do not get discouraged when the first Co-Packers turns your deal down. There are plenty of Co-Packers here. You surely will find the one who will be able to schedule your order at your given time.

Another thing about Co-Packers is that you have to adjust to the kind of types of equipment and facilities they have to offer because that is the way they work and that is how they run their businesses. So, if you happen to dislike their equipment or the way they work, you might want to keep that to yourself.

One main con which normally bothers may people from the business is that Co-Packer that you opt for may also be producing the food products of your competitors. That is because there is so much food business out there. This does not necessarily bother everyone but many of us sure do get affected.
