FAQs

Q: WHAT ARE THE MINIMUMS:

A: Packaging Specifications

Please refer to the packaging spec sheet to view what bottles and containers are stocked.

Q: WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?

A: All clients have a 10 day credit term established from the start. A 1.5% monthly interest rate is charged on all overdue invoices.

Q: CAN YOU STORE MY PRODUCT?

A: We do offer warehousing at a fee per pallet. Please ask for information on our warehousing program.

Q: HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

A: There is no set timing on when the process will be complete. Each project is its own and depends on a number of factors to determine a completed date. We can establish an individual timeline once we have discussed which step you are on in the production process.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR CERTIFICATIONS?

A:

  • We have a full HACCP program in place for all product produced and bottled.
  • We are registered as meeting the requirements of the : SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing Edition 8.1
  • Better Process Control for Acidified Foods Certified
  • CCOF Certified Organic

Q: WHAT WILL IT COST TO BOTTLE MY PRODUCT?

A: There are many factors that determine the cost, such as package type, ingredients, case count, expected line efficiency, labor costs, utility costs, etc. Once we have a signed confidentiality agreement and signed co-packing agreement on file and have reviewed your recipe, we will be able to provide a you with a general quote.

Q:  WHAT IS A SCHEDULED PROCESS FORM?

A:  It is a complete evaluation of how a food product is made, including all the steps of preparation, ingredients and packaging. It also evaluates and dictates formulation, critical control points, processing steps and storage.

Q: DO I NEED A GTIN?

A: Not necessarily. You can purchase a “Global Trade Item Number” (GTIN) that is a unique UCC Company Prefix from GS1 US that exclusively controls the assignment of numbers. This may be a better option if you are planning to sell your products to a distributor or a retailer and it may even be required from them. Check with the purchaser to confirm. Another option is to purchase an individual UPC code from EZUPC, which still gives you a code to use but your products would not be assigned a specific UCC Company Prefix.
