What is contract packaging?
Contract Packaging, also known as Co-Packing, is the overall process of assembling a product or good into its final finished packaging. Contract Packaging can be a simple or complex process as it is customized according to the specific scope of the product packaging, which varies greatly across the retail, commercial or trade industries. Contract Packaging and Co-packaging companies provide contract packaging services to product manufacturers and often act as an extension of the company.
Depending on the product, the final packaging may come in a variety of forms, including a thermoformed / plastic clamshell or blister packaging, a plastic bag, a standing corrugated retail point-of-sale display or a transport tray (to give a few examples). Contract packagers can be tasked with something as simple as adding a barcode sticker to a product or as complex as planning, designing, producing and fulfilling the entire package.
Why Use a Contract Packager / Co-Packer?
Because of the short-term and medium to high-volume nature of product packaging fulfillment, combined with the demand for specialty equipment and staffing hours, contract packaging services are typically outsourced to contract packaging companies. These contract packaging experts are specialized at handling varying levels of the contract packaging sequence and have many in-house resources or outside partners to respond to specific product packaging needs in a timely manner. Ultimately, this gives product manufacturers and product managers great flexibility in defining the packaging process based on the needs of the product.
