If a product is made and brought in as a "raw material" and it is further processed (ie cooked and packed in a bottle, nothing else done to the product) would the company who makes the "raw material" be considered a contract manufacturer?  Thanks in advance!

I think they are a supplier of a raw material into you process...and not a contract manufacturer.

 

In my humble opinion. :uhm:

No. 

 

If I ran a food company and I had ABC Food Packing manufacturer a product for me and they prepared it, labeled and packaged it for me and then either shipped to me or to our customers and me, etc. etc that would be a contract manufacture.


Kind regards,

Thanks for the information.  I would surely have placed it under being made by a co-manufacturer since it is a product made for us by another company.  Seems to be a very cloudy subject in my opinion.  I certainly appreciate the feedback!

Hi Tonya,

 

This is a supplier from what you have described.

 

2.3.4 Implementation Guidance
What does it mean?
Contract manufacturers are facilities that are contracted by the SQF certified supplier to produce, process, pack, and/or store part of all of one or more products included in the supplier’s product scope.

 

Regards,

 

Tony
