Your product is so good you can’t keep up with orders. Production is a constant stress for your team, and it takes time and attention away from everything else. You can’t even spare time (or equipment) to develop and launch a new product. Success can be a real challenge!
Sounds like you need a contract packer (co-packer) to help you meet demand. Sounds like something Tropical Labs can assist you with and help take the pressure off!
Using a co-packer like Tropical Labs can be a useful strategy, even for new companies still building toward demand. The right co-packer can be invaluable in addressing the constant challenges of order fulfillment:
- Inventory management
- Print needs and package production
- Product packing/assembly
Plus, compliance and regulatory are key as you grow, and a good co-packer will guide you easily and successfully through what can be a complicated process. gYou may need help with all of those areas, or just a few. The right co-packer will not only guide you through the process but work hand-in-hand with you to understand your business, identify efficiencies in the process, and help take you to the next level so you can delight your consumers.
Here are a few qualities and capabilities to consider in choosing the best co-packer for your business.
Ability To Get Your Products To Market
It is critical that you choose a co-packer who will not only help you assemble your product but also aid in strategizing how to successfully get them in the hands of your consumers. The right partner will be eager to understand your brand’s purpose and proactively find ways to help you meet your goals. Moreover, they immediately recognize that your success is also their success, so they will not hesitate to give you the best possible service.
To that end, you will need a reliable co-packer who has the proven experience to assist you. To borrow a cliche, you want a co-packer who can say “this isn’t our first rodeo” — a partner who has done it all before (a lot!) and can help you grow your business.
Co-Packing Services and Capabilities
Before selecting a partner, consider their existing capabilities and services. Choose a co-packer who can offer you a large selection of solutions for your product needs. Equally crucial are the quality control processes the co-packer implements to ensure the best possible manufacturing and packaging, and that your consumers don’t have an issue six weeks or six months after getting your product.
Partnerships and Collaborations
Knowing who your prospective co-packers typically work with can tell you a lot. Explore the industries and types of companies they serve and get a sense of whether they can meet your co-packing needs while ensuring you can stay true to your brand identity.
