Looking for a Private Label Manufacturer?

Our mission is to help retailers, food service operators and e-commerce platforms find new private label manufacturers as well as to help recruit existing consumer product manufacturers to get into private label manufacturing as well.

What is a Private Label Manufacturer?

A Private Label Manufacturer relating to food products is a company that produces food items for other brands, allowing those brands to sell the products under their own label or brand name. These manufacturers create the products based on the specifications provided by the brand, providing a cost-effective way for companies to offer a variety of products without having to invest in their production facilities.

Recruiting Private Label Manufacturers

The Contract Manufacturing Alliance is recruiting Private Label Manufacturers to join the Contract Packaging Association. The Contract Packaging Association is the premiere trade association to anything relating to contract manufacturing. CPA is involved with helping Private Label Manufacturers become contract manufacturers as well (also co-packers, packagers). They are also involved with private labelers and pilot plants.

What is the Difference Between a Private Labeler and a White Labeler?

Private Label Manufacturer:

  • Produces goods exclusively for a specific brand, retailer (for a series of products sold on the shelf) or food service operator (for their behind the counter needs).
  • The products are sold under the brand or retailer's name, and the manufacturer remains anonymous to the end consumer.

White Label Manufacturer:

  • Creates generic products that are not branded and do not carry any specific company's name.
  • These products are often sold to multiple brands or retailers who can then label them with their own branding, essentially making it appear as if they produced the item themselves.

Innovate Create Launch
The Contract Manufacturing Alliance’s PrivateLabeling.org is a service to both Private Label Manufacturers (looking for new clients) as well those retailers, food service operators and e-commerce platforms looking for new private label manufacturers to make products for them.
