Frequently Asked Questions
What is contract packaging?
Contract packaging, also referred to as co-packing, is a manufacturing process in which one company hires another to produce their packaging, assemble, kit, and sometimes warehouse and distribute the final finished goods or products. The product may be packed in a variety of forms, depending on its nature. Contract packing comes in many forms, including plastic bags, thermoformed or plastic clamshells, blister packaging, standing corrugated point-of-sale display packaging, and many more. It can be customized to the type of product and industry. For example, food can be packed in a variety of ways depending on the product’s various complexities.
This is why production companies outsource contract packaging solutions. In many cases they do not have the money, time or resources to invest in the necessary machinery and automation to do it themselves. On the other hand, contract packagers are experts at handling various types of materials of any kind of volume and are experienced with the different levels of the packaging sequence. They have specialized equipment and resources, and will usually have partnered with others in the industry to enable them to handle a wide range of packaging needs.
Ultimately, outsourcing their packaging needs gives product manufacturers great freedom of choice and flexibility, so that they can present an ideal look to the market with fewer hitches.
