The Benefits of Offering Multi and Variety Packs for Co-Packing

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Aug 11, 2022

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.
