In many ways, hiring a co-packer for your business is a large financial investment. You will have more people on your payroll, and may have to split costs between products purchased and payments from clients. Working with a co-packer may not seem worth it given the extra costs, but the benefits of professional and experienced services from co-packers will earn you far more money than you spent. Here are 4 reasons a good co-packer can save you money despite the added cost:
Constantly purchasing the most up to date food equipment can be extremely expensive, especially if your business is independent and has to cover costs alone. If you partner with a skilled co-packing company, they will already have the best equipment and the experience to use it. Co-packers like Dure Foods always have the best and most current equipment, and can provide those tools to any clients that need them.
Scale of Production
If your business works independently, there is only so much food you can produce and distribute to clients. You may get to keep the profits for yourself, but the scale of your business will not change without any help. Co-packers may share the profit, but they can also increase the scale of production to bring more money in for both of you. Experienced co-packers like Dure Foods have already worked with many professional businesses, so will immediately have the skills, tools and workspace to expand your business.
The added experience that co-packers bring to your business can also increase the turn-around of your distribution, allowing you to deliver to clients at a faster rate. This will not only give you time to increase your intake of clients, but the efficient service will also lead to higher customer satisfaction. Additionally, many customers may return to your business because of the reliability your quick delivery brings. Skilled co-packers like Dure Foods are able to produce and distribute food efficiently without sacrificing quality.
Certifications already earned
Another time and money consuming process is getting the necessary certifications to produce and distribute food. A professional co-packer like Dure will already have all the requirements to work for a food business. Not only will this save you the trouble of getting the certifications yourself, but the co-packers will already be fully trained and ready to work. Having knowledge about safety protocols, proper food handling and hazard prevention is important. With certified co-packers, you won’t have to worry about any costs that accidents may cause from carelessness or lack of knowledge.
