Contract Packaging and Filing

What is Contract Packaging?


Contract packaging, often referred to as co-packing, is a business arrangement where a company outsources the packaging of its products to a specialized third-party provider. This service encompasses various aspects of packaging, including filling, labeling, assembling, and often includes the sourcing of packaging materials. Contract packaging services are critical to increasing productivity and boosting corporate growth.


In light of the fact that the Packaging Innovations show is running at the NEC in Birmingham this week, we felt it was only fitting to talk about our reputable Contract Packaging and Filling service.
