Sustainable packaging is about coming up with a packaging solution that is better for the environment – a solution that results in less waste and less pollution. Consumers are aware of the challenges we are facing because of the over-usage of non-renewable resources. Because of this, the demand for businesses that offer sustainable packaging is increasing, while consumers do their part to help combat the global challenges we are being faced with.
Contract Packaging, or Co-Packing, is the process of assembling a product into its final finished packaging. It can be a simple or complex process, customized to your individual needs. Contract packagers possess the resources to respond to many different types of packaging needs in a timely manner, which gives product manufacturers the flexibility to define a packaging process that is best suited for their products.
Some common co-packing needs are for Multipacks and Variety packs. Multipacks are defined as a package of two or more individually packed items that are sold as a singular unit. This includes items like a 12 pack of soft drink cans or an 18 count of full-size candy bars. Variety packs are mixed multipacks in which two or more different products are packaged together. Some examples might include a flavor assortment of chips or an assorted flavor pack of alcoholic drinks.
