BCMPA to highlight outsourcing opportunities at Food Matters Live
The British Contract Manufacturers and Packers Association (BCMPA) will be returning to Food Matters Live at London’s ExCel, November 19-20 to highlight the opportunities and benefits of outsourcing services across the food, drink & nutraceutical sectors.
Whether a company is looking for filling of products into sachets, a sauce into bottles or a food supplement into jars, the BCMPA team will be available on stand A26 to discuss with brand owners, manufacturers, retailers and e-commerce companies how their accredited members can offer expert help and support in the development of food and drink projects. Also at the show, BCMPA members Eurofins and Huegli will be on stands D68A & D30 respectively to provide specific information on their scope within new product development, regulatory matters and food production.
“Food and drink is a highly innovative sector and we see many companies exploring the option of outsourcing, either because they don’t have the facilities in-house or the time or capacity to do it themselves,” said Emma Verkaik, head of marketing for the BCMPA.
As part of the event, visitors can also take part in the ‘Match Round Table Events’. Hosted by the BCMPA, the hour-long sessions entitled ‘How to find a contract manufacturer or packer for your outsourcing projects’, can be booked in advance and provide valuable, practical advice on how to work with and get the best results from a 3rd party manufacturer and the essential areas that need to be focused upon.
“We have a wealth of experience in contract manufacturing, contract packing, fulfilment, logistics and supply chain management and we will be pleased to offer practical advice during these sessions, as well as to all visitors to the BCMPA stand,” said Emma Verkaik.
“We also provide a useful ‘Tips for Start-ups’ page on the BCMPA website and recommend this to all new businesses as it gives access to a wealth of knowledge, and experience that can help turn their ideas and concepts into reality.”
