What is actually co-packing?

We explain the terms

The term co-packing refers to a production and logistics service. Here, a company outsources the production, packaging, picking and packing of products to another manufacturer.

Co-packing companies are also known internationally as contract packers or co-packers. Other terms are contract packer, contract packer or contract packer. In the beverage industry, the service is specifically called contract filling, as the contract partner is referred to as a bottler or contract filler.

For many years, various companies in Europe have been offering packaging solutions for the beverage, food, pharmaceutical, chemical or cosmetics industries. Co-packing is interesting for every company that manufactures products that are packed in cans, bottles, cartons, boxes, sacks and other types of packaging. The filling and packaging machines are subject to constant further development, so that different packaging solutions are available in different formats and quantities.

What does co-packing involve?

A company commissions another company to produce, pack, repackage or co-pack its products. The focus is not on packaging development and production. The service itself is offered and carried out, adapted to the individual requirements of the respective client. For example, manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers and middlemen or logistics and transport companies may award the contract.

Technical and organisational skills are used to position the product innovatively on the market. From the design of packaging concepts to knowledge of the logistical conditions, the co-packing company must be professionally positioned. This also includes comprehensive quality controls.

What are the advantages of co-packing?

Taking advantage of this service has several advantages: Clients can expect a lot of expertise, time savings and more flexibility. At the same time, quality and process reliability are increased because experts take over production. By optimizing the production processes, it is possible to concentrate on the core business. Furthermore, areas such as development and marketing can be strengthened. The result is an enormous increase in competitiveness.
