All you ever needed to know about Co-packing...

Sep 2013

(...but were afraid to ask)

This challenging topic was the subject of the keynote address at the first-ever conference of the European Co-Packers Association, to be held in Brussels, 8-9 October 2013. It was delivered by acknowledged industry expert and consultant Philippe Juhelle, formerly head of ‘third party management’ at Reckitt Benckiser, Numico, and most recently DE Master Blenders 1753. He shared, in depth, his perspective of co-packing, co-making and co-manufacturing, including answers to questions such as; What drives brand owners and manufacturers to outsource critical elements of their primary process? What are the partner selection criteria, and what are the do’s and don’ts? How can manufacturers protect their brands? and How do they see the future for co-packing?
