08 Nov Co-Packing: What is it, and why do I need it?
Are you a business that sells multiple different products? Do you struggle to find space to package orders and products? Are you short on time and falling behind on packing orders? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then you’ll benefit from co-packing. Life would be much easier for many companies if they switched to co-packing, yet it remains an often-misunderstood concept. Read on to learn what co-packing we do, how it can help your business, and how Kable fits into the picture.
What co-packing is
In its most basic form, co-packing (which stands for contract packaging) is the process of taking a product and packaging it into the final form before it reaches clients. Co-packers can put together multiple products in a single box or package. The final result can be shrink-wrapped, placed in display packaging, packed with other items, shipped by itself—the possibilities are almost endless.
What co-packing isn’t
Contract packaging takes a completed product you have created and packages it to a wide variety of specifications. Co-packing is not involved in actually creating the product. We don’t blend spices or sauces or assemble furniture. While we can pack separate products together, we don’t create new products out of two or three old ones. Rather, co-packing focuses on the shipping and display aspect of a product that has already been created. We can help package your pre-made chocolate chip cookies, but we can’t bake them for you using your special dough and chocolate chips from your favorite company.
Choosing a co-packing partner can be a lifesaver for your business. Here are just a few of the benefits to co-packing:
- Efficiency: larger packaging services have streamlined processes for packaging products, making them faster and more efficient.
- Affordability: large-scale packers can get better rates on packaging necessities, making it cheaper for them to pack your items.
- Time: shipping and packing products takes time. Outsourcing this service allows you to focus on other important aspects of your business.
- Flexibility: a good co-packer will work with you as your products and needs change, ensuring they always create the best fit for your shipping needs.
