Packaged Food and Beverage Fulfillment

What is packaged food fulfillment?

Food fulfillment is a process that requires a high degree of concentrated attention

Packaged food and beverage fulfillment requires unique storage space, a climate-controlled environment, and meticulous monitoring and handling. These perishable products can deteriorate quickly if not kept in an environment designed to keep items at optimal conditions.

Kable Product Services maintains a standard of excellence and aims to exceed customer expectations regarding food and beverage product handling and fulfillment. We are an FDA Food Registered Facility.

How do you store food in a fulfillment center?

Non-perishable food storage

Non-perishable food storage and fulfillment is just as crucial as perishable food fulfillment and warehousing.

Organizing and fulfilling nonperishable items takes a significant level of care and organization. Non-perishable items include things like canned goods, peanut butter, dry soups, seasonings, tea, ground coffee, protein bars, vitamins, nuts, and more.

Temperature-sensitive food storage

When selecting a 3PL partner for your food and beverage distribution needs, it’s essential to ensure the partner has processes and protocols.

  • Do they offer temperature-controlled storage?
  • Can their warehouse management system track product expiration date and LOT#?
  • Is the facility FDA Food Registered?
  • Do they offer temperature-controlled storage?
  • Can their warehouse management system track product expiration date and LOT#?
  • Is the facility FDA Food Registered?

There are critical processes and protocols when executing packaged food fulfillment.

It’s also vital to think about parcel shipping and solutions available depending upon product needs.

Checklist

Manufacturers and producers

Manufacturers and producers must adhere to strict packaging guidelines, shelf-life requirements, and safety protocols when manufacturing and producing packaged food and beverage items.

Your 3PL provider must understand these guidelines and implement any follow-through storage requirements necessary to keep packaged food items safe according to manufacturing and production requirements.

Warehouse

Storage

Packaged Food and beverage fulfillment requires special storage considerations.

As a retailer or brand in the food and beverage industry, securing your own storage space that meets the regulatory requirements is not a simple or inexpensive process.

Kable Product Services is centrally located, boasting over 200,000 square feet of storage space, offering FDA Food Registered temperature-controlled areas.  Our facility is prepped and ready to house your packaged food and beverage products.

We provide accurate inventory management and total transparency to customers throughout the entire transaction.

Truck

Transportation and distribution

Packaged Food and beverage products require careful transportation and distribution, as they can be compromised during delivery—even if the supplier and warehouse partner have done everything to code.

This process must be carefully monitored and only trusted to qualified shipping partners—Kable Product Services partners with major shipping companies that ensure timely and responsible delivery practices.
