Co-packers are Pain Relievers

Eira Braun-Labossiere May 30, 2024

Oh the highs of owning a business – the independence and the thrill of promoting your own, unique, goods!

While there are many highs, there are also inevitably the lows; small and growing business ownership has its pain points.

Do you have the time and the bandwidth to maintain every detail? Organizing inventory, fulfilling orders and shipping promptly can be time consuming when you have so many “to do’s” on your plate.

Let’s do a review of some typical pain points of the growing business:

  • Shrinking space for storage
  • Tracking inventory
  • Lack of workforce
  • Lack of time to add and train new workforce
  • Picking & packing orders
  • Timely order turnaround
  • Scalability
  • Handling returns

You can suffer through these challenges for a time but at some point, to grow your business, you will likely need to expand your workforce and your production space.

Your prescription for supportive business growth

There is a way to take the sting out of these “time sucks”. There is an alternative to resorting to temporary fixes. You are not alone.

When you partner with a secondary co-packer, you shift the day-to-day grind over to specialized support. Selecting the right copacker frees up your time to work on your business instead of in it. You are liberated to promote your brand by exhibiting at tradeshows, networking, negotiating deals with retail chains, updating your social media posts and however else you choose to market your goods.

So take heart – there is a long-term solution to the growing business growing pains. Let a copacker be your first responder to these common pain points.

The reason we get calls from small business is typically because they need relief from the day-to-day grind or just want to avoid burnout.
