Plant or Co-Pack

Do I build my own facility or search for someone else to manufacture my food product? I hear this question often and again today it was a discussion with a specialty food product executive. My advice is find a market, understand your consumers, and invest your time and energy (along with your capital) into communicating and expanding your products presence beyond its current market. Fortunately, there are literally 1000's of food plants with excess capacity that would dearly desire having your volume in-house and assisting with their mighty overhead. They have already concerned themselves with HACCP, FDA, and other regulatory agencies. They are managing the employees, inventories, and suppliers. Do you want to be a plant manager or a builder of markets with expanding distribution and sales?
