Small Batch Co-Packing

 

The copacking arrangement at Edible Enterprises caters to the needs of the smaller producer, start-up company, and those looking to bring a test product to market.  We offer low volume product runs at affordable prices that fill a niche in the market that other large batch co-packers cannot match.  The copacking here has been modified to follow Louisiana Department of Health guidance.

Here is how it works:

  • Company A gets permitted to produce product at Edible Enterprises.
  • Company A hires Copacking Force–  production manager, food worker — to create product.
  • There is no minimum batch size since you are now a tenant of Edible Enterprises.

The Copacking Force is something Edible Enterprises provides.  We will work with you to develop your process and system in the kitchen and train the production manager.  If needed, we will also help coordinate and assist the production manager and other workers to source, produce, and package products.
