The Benefits of Contract Juice Manufacturing
Synergy Food Group Operations Director, Adrian Hall explains the benefits of a Contract Juice Manufacturer so that you can understand and find the ideal Contract Juice Manufacturing or Private Label Beverage Manufacturing partner for your company.
The first and most obvious one – Cash.
Creating your own facility and setting up your own space is super expensive.
Machinery, rent, warehousing, all those things. It’s going to eat up a lot of that cash flow that would be much better utilized selling and marketing your brand.
A contract juice manufacturer’s already got these things established. So it’s something that they don’t even have to worry about either.
A contract juice manufacturer can also save you huge amounts of time.
Time when you’re starting your own small business is the most valuable thing, probably even more so than cash.
If you don’t have to worry about the physical making of your product and you’re just getting it sent to you, neatly packaged up in a finished, ready to go, ready to sell package. It’s much easier, so you can just spend your time selling, marketing and advertising, what you’re selling.
A contract juice manufacturer will help you avoid making really costly mistakes throughout that learning phase.
If you were to be setting something up yourself, costly mistakes are going to eat into your cashflow.
If you were to be doing things yourself, if a contract manufacturer is making it for you, those mistakes don’t happen.
They’ve been there, they’ve done it all before.
So you’re going to get this nice neatly packaged finished product. And all you’re going to have to do is worry about selling it.
A contract juice manufacturer is also going to help make scaling your business really easy.
Perhaps you’ve got the cash there to be able to set up your own facility with production lines and new truck and all the fancy lights and equipment.
But what happens if you get to the next stage where you need to scale your business?
Have you got the cash available to be able to buy new machinery and scale everything up so that you can grow as your customer, great customer base grows?
A contract juice manufacturer is going to deal with all of that for you, so it’s not something you’re going to have to worry about.
All you’re paying for is the unit price of the bottles that you’re purchasing from them, or the packaging or whatever you’re buying.
You’re not going to have to worry about HR issues.
This is always a blessing.
Dealing with people, dealing with staff takes a lot of time, takes a lot of energy.
A contract juice manufacturer is going to deal with all of those, staff and people issues for you. So all you have to worry about is selling your product.
An added bonus of working with a contract juice manufacturer is being able to utilize the network that they’ve established over years and years of being in business.
That might be from a retailer’s perspective, they might have supermarket connections or huge retailer connections or franchises that they might’ve been able to open doors for you, that you may not have been able to open yourself.
They’re also going to have a great network of growers and wholesalers that they’re going to be able to get great pricing from that you wouldn’t have been able to source if you’d been doing it yourself.
These networking opportunities, are a blessing disguise.
You’ve also got the opportunity for the contract juice manufacturer to ride the seasonality of your product better than you could do yourself.
You may have a product that does really, really well in summer, but perhaps in winter sales drop off.
It might be a juice or, or a fruit or something that is not going to be that popular in winter.
When that happens, if you were making that yourself, your rent costs don’t decrease in winter, your electricity costs don’t decrease in winter. So you’re left with having to outlay that cash and go backwards potentially in winter only to have to claw your way back in summer.
That’s not your problem when you’re dealing with a contract juice manufacturer as it’s already built into your costs.
You just have to worry about paying your unit price and potentially you don’t even need to hold so much stock over those colder months as well, enabling your cashflow to be much, much healthier.
So just to summarize those points about the benefits of working with a contract juice manufacturer.
Cash and time, they’re going to save you tons and tons of those.
They’re going to help you avoid making really costly mistakes because of the experience that they’ve got in the industry they’ve been there, they’ve done it all before.
They’re going to help in those different stages of scaling your business, and they’re going to be able to ride those seasonality changes much better than you could, if you would try and manage them yourself.
You’re not going to have to worry about HR issues and staff. That’s not going to eat up your time. You can focus it all on marketing and selling your product.
And they’re going to open great doors for you as well. Whether that be through opportunities with cheaper produce, better produce, or maybe retailers or supermarkets as well.
