Contract Filling and Packing Services

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.


At WePack, we can meet your filling requirements on time and within budget. We utilise food-safe, BRC-accredited packing lines to ensure that your products are handled with the utmost care.

Our highly-skilled operatives have years of experience packing a wide range of products, including powders, pastes, liquids, and fragile items.

No matter the industry, our team has the knowledge and experience to complete the job. Whether you need a one-time project or ongoing packing support, WePack has you covered. Reach out to us today to request a free quote.
