Below are a list of products our Emerging Brands Summit attendees are actively looking for help manufacturing and/or packaging.
*Before scheduling a Braindate, log in here.
We need help identifying the ideal equipment for scaling production to 5000 - 10000 units per week, including the following activities: milling spices, dust containment, mixing, filling, labeling, heat induction and capping.
Our product is an instant breakfast cereal made using an ancient supergrain called Fonio. We are looking for sustainable cup packaging with fill line inside at a reasonable price.
We offer freshly squeezed bottled lemonade infused with real fruit. Made without preservatives and artificial ingredients. I’m look for a bottle filling machine for a small business. I’m also looking for cheaper labels and bottles.
MACBAR is minimally processed whole food based energy on the go using the most nutritionally desirable nut available: macadamia, due to its superior fat profile and near absence of anti nutrients. We could use manufacturing/co-manufacturing advice + shelf stability and consumer trend insights.
Plate & Pantry produces a refrigerated sweet garlic pickle in two flavors, sweet & sweet and spicy habanero. I just got approved as a supplier for a 500 store chain out of Salt Lake City. I need help finding a packaging solution that increases output. I am thinking a fill & seal machine is the answer but I am having difficulty finding one that can put both dry and liquids into a pre-made pouch bag. With that said, does the possibility of finding fill machine for the dry ingredients exist? I then can fill the liquid and seal the bag by hand. The issue I am finding with co-packers is that I seem to be the only refrigerated pickle producer packaging into a pouch bag. Co-packers I have reached out to have their production lines set up for glass.
We are looking for organic food manufacturers who are willing to work with products that contain 9 allergens -- peanut, milk, egg, wheat, soy, sesame, and tree nuts including almond, cashew, and walnut. This has been a challenge as many manufacturers limit the number of allergens in their facility (usually peanut or wheat).
