Some co-packers can require as many as 5,000 units in a minimum run. This can stress cash flows, making it expensive to hold large amounts of inventory for an extended period of time.
At Blue Ridge Food Ventures, our minimums are typically lower than other co-packers. We base our productions on how many units our team can finish in a normal working day.
Don’t want to navigate the human resources minefield? Let Blue Ridge Food Ventures deal with the crew. We are well experienced in dealing with all the complexity of having employees.
Many people consider "too much demand" to be a "good problem". But it's still a problem. And it can negatively impact your business in a number of ways.
