Choosing a Co-Packer

Choosing a Co-Packer

Are you looking to take your company to the next level?

If so, a contract packager, or co-packer, might be the key to your success. Working with a co-packer offers many benefits for companies who are looking to increase production and take on a larger-scale project. ASTRON Packaging offers a variety of co-packing solutions for companies, like on-site packaging, design, and display or contract packaging.

What is a Co-Packer?

Co-packers work hand-in-hand with companies to design and create packaging for their products. Once the packaging design is complete, co-packers will package the products and prepare them for delivery. Most co-packers can offer a variety of packaging solutions, including product packaging, design, distribution and guidance among other services.

Choosing the Right Co-Packer

Finding the right co-packer can be beneficial to the overall success of your products. Your packaging needs are important, which is why it’s imperative to ensure that the services a co-packer offers lines up accordingly with what you require. You can begin looking for a co-packer by simply doing some research online. Choosing a local co-packer can eliminate unnecessary stress down the road, as shipping costs tend to be reduced and it can also prove to be much easier when scheduling meetings.

Once you find a local co-packer with services that meet your needs, the next step is to ensure that they make safety and quality a priority. Are they fully-certified? What are their safety policies and procedures? The quality and safety of your products and those who will be using them is extremely important. If your co-packer isn’t willing to put quality and safety first, where else may they withhold with your products?’

During the selection process it can be very helpful to have open communication with your co-packer. It may prove to be a good sign if they are happy to meet with you, discuss services and policies or even offer to give you a tour of the warehouse. You can use this time to see if the values of both companies line up with each other, and even ask for referrals from the co-packer.
