Here we go!
1. Outsource to an Expert
Experience: Co-packers already have trained staff at the ready, with warehouse space dedicated to co-packing. They offer expertise on services you may find too time-consuming, too complicated or simply too expensive for you to perform in house.
2. Systems In Place
Safety and Quality: A reliable co-packer has SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) and efficient packaging line systems already in place. A facility such as ours follows GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) and is licenced and certified by Health Canada.
3. Machinery Investments and Upkeep
Equipment: No need to rent/buy/store/operate/repair equipment when a co-packer already has theirs in house. And hey, they already know how to use and maintain their forklifts, shrinkwrappers, lot coders, labellers, flowwrappers, and how to make it run your job with greatest efficiency.
4. Who Do You Trust?
Transparency /Trust: “Generally speaking the more transparent a co-packer is, the more trust will likely develop between partners. Considering this could be your brand’s most important partnership, that trust factor is critical.”* Upon first introductions, interview and tour your co-packing choices. You want to feel good about who you are dealing with and what their facility looks like and runs like. Ensure their costing holds no surprises for you. For instance, Repack Canada bills to estimate.
Materials: Co-packers already have suppliers and partners in place and often at a better rate than you may get for a one-off sale with a supplier you are yet to even research.
A Repack Canada “value add” is direct access to their marketing and graphic design branch, The Freelance Portfolio, for promotional and graphic design support.
BONUS: But Wait, There’s More!
Bonus Reason #6. Whatever-it-takes Customer Service
With a co-packer like Repack Canada, it is their business to do #whateverittakes to turn your job around with highest priority. “Find a reliable partner in copacking and sales promotions: you will be amazed at the time + money + energy you can save.”**
