Have you ever heard the expression "WOW, you ought to bottle that!"? Well that’s
where custom manufacturing starts. Custom Food Manufacturing is the process of creating
unique food products for the market place.
Why should I consider this process?
Consumer palettes are changing, especially with the popularity of television food
shows. Top chefs are creating magical dishes every day on TV and the public is craving
these new taste profiles. Food dishes that worked back in the 70s, 80s and 90s may
not work today. Today’s consumer palette is more sophisticated than ever before,
and restaurants and food companies realize the need to adapt to this evolution.
Why should I choose Arcobasso?
Our culture of owning a project and making sure every detail is met is what truly
sets us apart. Back that with our Quality Assurance Team, experienced Food Chemists,
marketing and distribution experts, and a state of the art production facility with
capacity to take on your project of any size, and you have more than enough reasons
to call Arcobasso first.
How long will it take?
Approximately 3-6 months depending on the complexity of the project and packaging.
After signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement, our Food Chemist starts the process of
creating samples. Once samples are approved by the customer, production is scheduled
and the finished product will be shipped to the customer in as little as three weeks.
What are my different packaging options?
For food service, we pack in gallons, liters, 5-gallon pails and drums. We can also
pack individual cups (1 to 4 oz sizes; custom sizes available; minimum quantities
apply). On the retail side, we offer a variety of 8 oz, 12 oz, and 16 oz glass and
What type of choices will I need to make?
There are many options in our custom manufacturing process. Some of the choices
that the customer will need to make are: final product taste, packaging and label
design. All of the mandatory food regulation issues, bar coding, and nutritional
facts/ingredient statements are handled by Arcobasso Foods.
Who carries the inventory?
This will depend on whether the customer is receiving the product through a distributor,
or having the product shipped directly to their location.
How long will the product last?
Every product is a little different, but shelf life on most items has a minimum
shelf life of 6 months or up to 12 months. Our Food Chemists will work with the
customer to advise on shelf life.
How much will it cost?
Our smallest production run is 160 gallons, however, this is required 12 times annually.
So depending on your recipe and the costs of ingredients, prices will vary, but
we will provide cost estimates in the early stages of development.
How You Need It
To meet our customers’ needs, Arcobasso offers a variety of packaging options for
any of our custom sauces, dressings, and marinades. This can include private labeling
or meeting existing brand standards for both labels and packaging requirements.
