Looking For Your First Co-Manufacturer?

Finding a bakery co-packer involves a series of steps to identify, evaluate, and select a suitable partner for your bakery production. Here’s a guide to help you in the process:

1.  Define Your Requirements:
Clearly outline your product specifications, including ingredients, packaging, and production quantities. Identify any certifications or quality standards required for your bakery item. If you are able to know what specific equipment is needed, this will help narrow your search.

Hint: If you need an idea of what questions co-packers and co-mans will ask, fill out a project intake form on our website. It is free to fill out and will help prepare you for your manufacturer search! Get started by creating a free account here.

2. Research Potential Co-Packers:
Use online resources, industry directories, and trade associations to identify potential co-packers. Look for co-packers with experience in bakery production and a good reputation. You will also want to make sure that your quantities align with their minimum order quantities.

3. Industry Associations and Networks:
Connect with food industry associations or networks. They often have directories of co-packers or can provide recommendations.

4. Attend Trade Shows:
Attend relevant trade shows or expos in the food industry where you can meet potential co-packers. Trade shows provide an opportunity to see their capabilities and discuss your needs face-to-face.

5. Online Platforms and Directories:
Utilize online platforms and directories that connect businesses with co-packers in the food industry. 

6. Network in the Industry:
Connect with professionals in the food industry through networking events, forums, and social media. Ask for recommendations or insights from those who have experience in co-packing.

7. Request for Proposals (RFPs):
Prepare a detailed request for proposals outlining your requirements and send it to potential co-packers. Include information about your bakery project, production volumes, quality standards, and any other relevant details. PartnerSlate can also streamline this process for you. 

8. Visit Facilities:
If possible, visit the facilities of potential co-packers to assess their capabilities, hygiene standards, and overall suitability.

9. Check References:
Ask for and check references from other companies that have worked with the co-packer. Inquire about their experiences and satisfaction with the co-packer’s services.

10. Negotiate Terms and Contracts:
Once you’ve identified a suitable co-packer, negotiate terms, pricing, and production schedules. Ensure that all aspects are clearly outlined in a comprehensive contract.

11. Quality Control:
Establish clear quality control standards and procedures to ensure that your bakery items meet the desired specifications.

12. Legal and Regulatory Compliance:
Verify that the co-packer complies with all necessary legal and regulatory requirements for food production.

13. Start with a Trial Run:
Consider starting with a smaller production run to assess the co-packer’s performance and the quality of the produced snacks.

It’s essential to conduct thorough due diligence to ensure that the co-packer aligns with your business needs and values. Each co-packer may have unique capabilities, specialties, and terms, so finding the right fit for your specific bakery production requirements is crucial.
