Small Batch Copacking @Edible Enterprises

Copacking services at Edible Enterprises are fulfilled by Food & Farm Works (FFW). FFW is a full service contract packaging company that is your one-stop-shop for producing everything from frozen vegetables and soups to jarred pickles and sauces. We cater to the needs of the smaller producer, offering low volume product runs at affordable prices that fill a niche in the market that other co-packers cannot match.

The Process


Permitting.

Your business would be the permitted entity at the Edible Enterprises kitchen.  For production, Food & Farm Works would provide a workforce of skilled food producers -- production manager, food workers -- that would be hired by your business. We would work with you to develop your process system in the kitchen, manage the workforce, and coordinate sourcing and shipment, if needed. There are no minimum batch sizes.


How do I begin?

How do I begin? We begin the process of helping bring your product to market with a conversation. We want to ensure we are the best fit for you to produce your product before anyone spends a dime. Please contact us to discuss your co-packing needs at (888) 966-0829 x2 or kitchen@noffn.org.


What's the next steps?

Once we discuss your production needs, we'll sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement and you can feel confident in having us take a look at your recipe to understand the production needs. There are up-front costs associated with all of the work we do to get permitted, and develop a recipe and process for production. We charge a flat fee of $2,750 per recipe and process for our services for permitting and developing a production process.
