      Food for Thought has been providing product development and co-pack services for over 25 years. We specialize in artisanal, small-batch production of Organic and All Natural food products and are ready to help you BUILD YOUR BRAND. 

      ● We can help you prepare your recipe for high volume production, focusing on reducing your expenses and increasing production efficiency/volume

      ● We are experts in all of the steps and associated costs with taking your current recipe and transforming it into a safe, production ready, shelf stable product, complying with FDA requirements.

      ORGANIC! We are certified organic and can produce all natural, GMO and gluten free products.

      The passage of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) enacted some of the most sweeping reforms to U.S. food safety laws in more than 70 years. While Food for Thought has always adhered to and been subject to the FDA/MDARD licensing and food processing requirements, we felt the need to raise the bar of our organization’s systems by meeting the requirements of 3rd party certification. The Food for Thought production facility passed our April 2021 audit by AIB International with a high score of 925/1000 and continually strive to maintain the same high standard of cleanliness and good practices. We take great pride in the quality and safety of our delicious products and those we produce for our partners. Our goal is to continually improve and deliver the safest, highest quality food, and the best value possible.

      * ABOUT THE FOOD FOR THOUGHT CO-PACK PROGRAM:

      PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS CURRENTLY A WAITING LIST FOR CO-PACK SERVICES (updated 2/7/2022)
      Due to the overwhelming increase in demand for co-pack services, there is currently a 6 month waiting period before Food for Thought can accept new co-pack clients.
      LENGTH OF TIME FROM START TO FINISHED PRODUCT: 
      There are many steps in the co-pack process.  Once the process has been started, most products will take a minimum of 4-6 months before they can be production ready, and often longer, depending on project complexity.  Please note that this does not include waitlist time.
