Co-Packers based in Mexico: Want to Sell Your Salsa, Preserves, Jams, Etc.? Learn About Using A CoPacker to Prepare It!

If you are making a product for sale in Mexico, or using ingredients grown in Mexico, it may make sense to have your food product produced and packed in Mexico. A co-packer, based in Mexico, can do that for you.

What is a co-packer?

Co-packers manufacture and package foods for other companies to sell.  These products range from nationally-known brands to private labels.  Entrepreneurs choose to use the services of copackers for many reasons.  Copackers can provide entrepreneurs with a variety of services in addition to manufacturing and packaging products.  They can often help in the formulation of the product.  The copacker may function only as a packer of other people?s products or may be in business with his own product line.  They may be, in fact, manufacturing several competing products.  The range of services available from a copacker will vary depending on the size and experience of the copacker and the type of facilities and the capacity of their plant.

The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) has a listing of nearly 700 contract packaging companies (co-packers). Far too many people feel that a co-packer is a co-packer, and that any co-packer can do everything. In fact, co-packers have a variety of specific functional areas in which they excel. The following list is not all inclusive nor is it meant to serve as an endorsement.

See this page for much, much more about co-packers, like advantages, disadvantages and how to choose a copacker.

It includes the co-packer contact information, products that they co-pack, plant locations, types of pack­aging they use, and specialized packing equipment (such as enrobers, form-fill and seal, smokers, vacuum packaging, etc.).

Few co-packers can all of the types of products and services that may be needed:

  •  Liquid products
  • Dry products
  • Ingredient pre-blends
  • Labeling
  • Packaging service only
  • Product development/recipe conversion

Using a qualified contract packer will enable you to devote your time to management and marketing, while eliminating the enormous expense and responsibility of operating a production facility. Some will provide only the packaging, while others will help you with the entire formulation, production, packaging, and labeling process. Most offer no-cost initial consultation. Some even have marketing capability.
