What Is Contract Manufacturing?

Contract Manufacturing

Contract manufacturing is a critical service for the ready-to-drink (RTD) beverage industry. It involves a company outsourcing the production of their product to another company that specializes in manufacturing and packaging. This allows companies to focus more on their product development, marketing, and other aspects of their business, while allowing the contract manufacturer to handle the production and fulfillment.

What Are the Benefits of Working with a Contract Manufacturer?

There are many benefits to working with a contract manufacturer. Companies are able to reduce overhead costs associated with producing and packaging their product, while also having access to a wide range of production capabilities and expertise. Contract manufacturers also offer shorter lead times, shorter minimum order quantities, and more flexibility in terms of production options and packaging materials.

The Importance of Choosing a Safe, Certified Facility

When partnering with a contract manufacturer, it is important to ensure that the company has the necessary certifications and full production capabilities. For instance, here at Southeast Bottling & Beverage, we are SQF Level III certified and also hold HEPA, Organic, and Kosher certifications.
