       THE FOOD FOR THOUGHT CO-PACK PROGRAM:

      Food for Thought has been providing co-pack services for over 25 years. We specialize in artisanal, small-batch production of organic and natural foods, produced in our inspected facility just outside Traverse City, Michigan.
      If you have a proven product line with distribution and are ready to grow, we can help you get to the next level with higher volume production, reduced expenses, and increased production efficiency in full compliance with FDA requirements.
      ORGANIC! We are a certified organic production facility and can produce all natural, GMO and gluten free products.

      LENGTH OF TIME TO FINISHED PRODUCT: 

      There are many steps in the co-pack process.  Most products will take a minimum of 4-6 months before they are production ready, and often significantly longer, depending on project complexity.  Please note that this does not include waitlist time.
