Know anything 'bout co-packers?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to find a co-packer in the Vancouver area and for those not sure of the term, a co-packer is a company that takes your recipe and produces your product for you - such as a sauce, syrup, jam etc.

I've come across a few companies however I wanted to see if the e-Gullet community is knowledgable about this topic, has resources to share or even tips/hints on what to look for.

Can you help? Thanks!

After years of producing her own sauce my friend has finally used a co-packer here in Vancouver. If you mentioned a couple names I'd probably recognise the one she used. She's having several thousand bottles done right now for shipment to her U.S. market after testing the system with a few minimum run batches. Prompt me with the name of a larger bottler and it would probably be correct. Meanwhile I know she'll be hard to reach over the next few days.

A referral from NOLA for OR? Hmm... Um, a gracious thank you but I was looking to stay with local Vancouver companies for now.

Glenys - other than the firm name, she might be a good resource to know pitfalls and things to avoid. Any lessons learned to share?

Thanks

Fine, but it is, in fact, pretty much along the lines of what I do for a living. Good luck with that.

Hi Brian,

There was a company, a number of years ago, in Richmond doing what you are looking for. I do not remember the name of the company but they were located at 185-11960 Hammersmith Way. I happen to be in that area this weekend so I will drive by and get the name for you.

Have a great weekend,

Les
