So, how can you find the right co-packer located in Mexico?

You’re correct. Not every co-packer will offer the same range of services or capabilities. Co-packers are companies that specialize in packaging and sometimes manufacturing products on behalf of other companies. Regularly, co-packers provide various services such as product formulation, packaging design, sourcing of materials, labeling, and packaging of the final product.

The specific services offered by a co-packer can vary depending on their expertise, equipment, facilities, and the industries they serve. Some co-packers may focus on specific industries, such as food and beverages, cosmetics, or pharmaceuticals, while others may have a broader range of capabilities.

For example, one co-packer might specialize in bottling beverages and have the necessary equipment and expertise for filling and capping bottles. Another co-packer might focus on packaging dry goods like snacks and have the appropriate machinery for bagging, sealing, and labeling. Finally, as we do, at Lempat Foods we are more specialized in doing hot fill-hold products, with thermal shock, obtaining a shelf life stable product.

Additionally, co-packers may have different production capacities, lead times, and minimum order requirements. Some co-packers may cater to small businesses with lower production volumes, while others may have large-scale operations suitable for high-volume production.

When looking for a co-packer, it’s important to consider your specific needs and requirements. You should research and evaluate multiple co-packers to find one that aligns with your product and packaging requirements, budget, and production volumes. Communication with potential co-packers is crucial to ensure they can meet your needs and expectations. Here is where we can help you find the right co-packer

Step by step to find the right co-packer

Consulting services for developing food products involve providing expert guidance and support throughout the product development process. This includes ensuring compliance with FDA regulations, obtaining certifications, understanding and implementing PCQI (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual) requirements, adhering to FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) regulations, and finding a copacker in Mexico. Additionally, best practices for launching a brand-new food product are considered. Let’s explore each of these areas in more detail:

  2. Certifications: we will assist in obtaining various certifications relevant to the food industry, such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), Organic, Gluten-Free, Kosher, Non-GMO, and more. These certifications enhance product quality, safety, and marketability.
