“Maco Pkg was our Ideal Packager” ~ Crown Maple

By | Custom Contract Packaging | No Comments

About a year ago, we needed a co-packer for a new project we were starting, a specialized line of single serve packets for maple sugar and maple syrup. Since they’re unique in the industry, we needed a co-packer company that could accommodate our specific needs.

Maco pkg was the ideal choice as a packaging company for us since they can maintain organic certification, cooperate with our unique needs, and work within our budget.

A major obstacle we had to overcome was the tendency maple syrup has to absorb surrounding odors very easily. Maco resolved all issues with the packaging material to maintain the quality and taste of our product. If there was an obstacle during the packaging process, Maco worked diligently to overcome it.

We had an elegant design for the artwork and Maco executed it well – we’re extremely happy with it. We were also positively impressed during our tour of Maco’s facility. They have a wide range of capabilities and the flexibility to work with customers for unique packaging. We’d recommend Maco on their excellent customer service and their ability to accommodate special needs.

We hope to do more packaging with Maco PKG in the future. They did an exceptional job and we are quite pleased.

Validation

Every custom contract packaging project begins with a concept, an idea, a distinct goal in mind . When a customer calls, we will discuss the various details of the product–flexible packaging, storage requirements, secondary packaging, scope of work and special consideration. We run through all the necessary validation, ensuring that our facility is well suited for your product and vise versa. We are a diverse food and beverage co-packer, so we will make sure your project fits with the other products running in our facility.

What’s Next?

Documentation

Once the packaging project is validated, we go through the documentation process. We look into the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) to understand how to best handle the materials to protect and ensure the best possible quality. We also will request an ingredients list as well as an allergen statement. This step ensures that we capture a good understanding of your product.

Almost Ready

Preparation

Maco will work side by side with the customer to help develop a custom contract packaging solution, either flexible or rigid, in case development work is needed. We then ask the customer for a sample of their product for analysis–is it hydroscopic, dry, free flowing, dense? We will run a sample and see how the equipment handles the product. Next, we get the necessary equipment together, acess environmental controls if necessary, and set up a room for those particular packaging specifications.

Get Set, GO!

Production

You have several options for your custom contract packaging. We can custom-blend either liquid or dry ingredients to co-manufacture your product. We are set up to receive ingredients or finished product in a variety of formats, including over the road tanker. We then introduce the product to the line where  the magic of packaging occurs. Regularly throughout the run, our quality team makes rounds to check each product’s individual analytics. Maco has the capability to test for a wide variety of parameter including (but not limited to) PH, brix, water activity, moisture content, color, flavor, tensile, and others. The customer can choose to send in all of the packaging materials and components, or we can acquire these item ourselves.
