Established in 1992, the Contract Packaging Association (CPA) is the national, non-profit trade organization dedicated to promoting the growth and welfare of firms in the Contract Packaging / Manufacturing industry and related businesses. We offer exposure and programs designed to foster growth within our member firms.
The Co-Packing Network is a comprehensive national Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) advisory group deeply rooted in the diverse US and Canadian consumer product manufacturing industries. Celebrating our 100-year anniversary, our expansive history spans supermarkets, wholesaling, manufacturing, owning brands, and beyond.
The CPA’s Request for Quote (RFQ) tool allows an automated submission to CPA Members to securely submit their project details and needs. Your Request for Quote will be dispatched to CPA Members whose capabilities match your project needs, and if they can assist you, will contact you directly about their services and capabilities.
The team manages the request all-the-way through to end up with successful results. We also can become a project manager to manage the whole process (search, secure and work with one or more contract manufacturers).
The Contract Manufacturing Alliance’s founders have created an incubation program specific to the clients of Private Label Manufacturers nationwide.
Incubation Programming: We have created white label and private label incubation models ideal for Private Label Manufacturers that help their clients with subjects relating to the business. These include subjects such as retailers, calendar reviews, distributors, brokers, funding, PO financing, logistics, recipe and formulation help, packaging, ingredients, food service, exporting product and more.
Our incubation program connects consumer product entrepreneurs with kitchens, co-packers, and pilot plants nationwide, perfect for farmer's market operators and vendors.
Together with our own internal and external sales partners, we help place products (retailers, e-commerce) that consumer product entrepreneurs make with their manufacturing partners. Our own www.RetailFormats.com showcases all of the retail and food service formats that are ideal for placements.
We help entrepreneurs place their products with manufacturers in retail and food service locations via our sales partners. Check out the ideal formats at www.RetailFormats.com.
We create e-commerce platforms and Amazon relationships for client brands using our internal and external sales partners, with customers like Thrive Market, Abe’s Market and Wayfair.
Our family has been involved within the consumer product industry (US based manufacturing, retailing, distribution) since the early 1920’s. From the first generation to the latest, our best practices have been handed down over time leading to a long legacy of successes in the business (manufacturing, retailing, distribution and more).
Contract Packaging (CP) is the official magazine for the Contract Packaging Association, published three times each year by PMMI Media Group (owners of Packaging World magazine). Dedicated exclusively to contract packaging issues and news, each issue is overseen by Editor-in-Chief, Anne Marie Mohan.
