Our Contract Packaging Division has grown significantly over the years. In the early years we did very simple projects…coffee creamer and hot chocolate mixes. Today we produce a wide range of products…literally anything you can find in the retail grocery store. We do limit our projects to dry food products only.
Our current blend of capabilities involves primarily three styles of packaging: pouches–vertical, horizontal and stand-up, pouch in cartons and direct fill cartons. We have over 30 manufacturing lines that run typically on a two-shift, five days a week basis. Flexibility in both capabilities and scheduling has long been a primary asset at Crest Foods. Of course, capabilities mean nothing if there are not great people supporting them. We have many 10, 20 and even 30 year employees in our division. Their years of experience really make a difference in the products we manufacture.
