New Jersey Co-Packers: Want to Sell Your Salsa, Preserves,
Jams, Etc.? Learn About Using A CoPacker to Prepare It!
If you want to make and sell your home-made preserves, salsa,
spaghetti sauce, applesauce, apple butter, jams, jellies, or whatever,
you will need a licensed kitchen to prepare and can the food. That's fine for relatively small quantities, and if there is a licensed kitchen to rent
nearby at a good cost. See this page for shared use kitchens in New Jersey. But it may be less expensive (and less risky)
for your new business to use a CoPacker to prepare their food, according
to you recipe and process.
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.
Choosing a Co-Packer
You will want to choose a co-packer who has experience making the type of product and packaging that you
need. You may also want to choose a co-packer that is located close to you or your source materials and/or
market or distribution centers to reduce costs.
See this page for much, much more about co-packers, like advantages,
disadvantages and how to choose a copacker.
The following list consists of companies in New Jersey that have co-packing
capabilities. This list is neither all-inclusive, nor is it meant to
