What is contract filling?
Contract filling is the outsourcing of specialist packing services to an expert third party. Contract fillers typically fulfil custom packing orders – measuring and dispensing products into containers and completing quality assurance.
This includes packing dry products and liquid filling, plus specialist services like shrink wrapping, bagging, VFFS, bottling, gas flushing and printing on bags and containers.
Businesses typically hire a contract filling provider when they don’t have the resources or expertise to fulfil packing projects in-house.
