We Support CPG Start-Ups
We have been supporting the food and beverage start-up community for the past 12-years with product development, advisement, funding and placement into retail. Our internal and external start-up community is very extensive and available for start-ups nationwide.
We personally are involved with a number of start-ups at different phases all with the goal of successful launches into the North American marketplace.
Support Food Start-ups Seal: We will be using our new seal to showcase the need for the support for food start-ups in different communities, applications and programs. Our seal will be seen in our marketing efforts (TV, web, trade shows, products) and will be offered to partners who commit to the same goals.

Our History With Grab-and-Go
We created the first series of grab-and-go programs in the early 1990’s and evolved into becoming distribution platform developers and operators for formats such as hotels, camp-grounds and marinas.
Our first series of snack and beverage programs (including with Best Buy, Lowe’s, Hilton and Staples) grew to an annual $500 million and evolved into new programs within the food service formats (smoothie, juice, yogurt, coffee, deli, colleges and universities, hospitals, offices and factories, stadiums and arenas, theme parks, water parks, zoos, aquariums and more).
20,000 qualified packaging professionals receive each edition of CP. These professionals are individuals who have indicated that they have purchase involvement in contract packaging and related services and products. Magazine recipients are also contract packagers, who are CPA members.
Contract Packaging has the privilege and the advantage of being the official publication for the Contract Packaging Association, positioning CP journalists for optimum access to and trust of key influencers who are driving the leading edge of the industry.
