Navigating the food and beverage co-packing landscape
The nearly US$3 trillion food and beverage market is experiencing phenomenal growth. Co-packers provide an attractive option for food and beverage brands to quickly launch products in the market. These food processors often offer additional services, such as product development, ingredient sourcing, cost containment, packaging, warehouse storage, label review, regulatory compliance and ability to scale up product. Finding the right contract manufacturer to meet a brand’s specific needs is a challenge best guided by key considerations.

• Before, during and after selecting a co-packing partner, good communication is key.
• Well-written contracts are a must to alleviate uncertainties and clarify responsibilities.
