Contract manufacturers provide manufacturing services to food companies. A contract manufacturer, also known as a copacker, produces product utilizing the food company formula and processing procedures. Utilizing the services of contract manufacturers allows food companies to concentrate on marketing their food products rather than processing. A contract manufacturer also eliminates the need and associated costs of owning and operating a processing facility.
