Contract Food Manufacturing

Contract Food Manufacturing

Contract – an agreement between two parties, usually written

Food – FDA regulated goods, BRC/GFSI certified

Manufacturing – production of goods for distribution

Blendex is indeed a contract food manufacturer. Our customers often supply their own formulas, vendors, and/or packaging. Some Blendex customers only provide a formula and Blendex sources ingredients and packaging.

Contract food manufacturing appears in many forms, but the one constant is an agreed upon set of specifications that must be met every time product is made.

Blendex has over 40 years’ experience in contract food manufacturing. Let us know how we can produce your food products!

or as Juliet (the famous food safety expert) has said:
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

Romeo and Juliet (II, II, 1-2)


Would Juliet say your outsourcing experience “smells as sweet” as your in house production? 

When you outsource your dry food custom blending and packaging, how do you know the outside party is safe?  Are they producing food legally?  And will they meet your tough quality expectations? 

This is the issue GFSI addresses in Section 3.5.4 Management of outsourced processing, in The Standard, Issue 7 for BRC. 

When you choose to outsource your dry custom food blending and food packaging to Blendex, you are choosing a company who scores the highest possible score on GFSI, BRC audits.  No worries with auditors who ask you about Blendex and your Supply Chain Preventative Controls! 

With Blendex, you also get a company who passed an unannounced FDA/FSMA 2 day audit recently, without a Form 483 being issued!

Blendex has been trusted and experienced in contract blending since1979!

  We maintain an open door with our food clients - we welcome scheduled or unannounced visits and/or 2nd party audits.  Come watch your products be produced to ensure we deliver on our promises!

Contact Blendex and let them know your dry food custom blending needs. 

See for yourself how “sweet” we smell!

Blendex earns "AA" rating with BRC in 2017 for safe, legal and quality food products

In June 2017 Blendex again scored the highest rating possible with the BRC, GFSI 3rd party audit for food safety, legality and quality!  Well done Blendex staff!  Blendex isn't satisfied though, we are already improving and growing for next year.

Before being GFSI certified, for more than a decade, Blendex was audited for GMPs by AIB and annually was rated highly.

Blendex has a great history and track record for producing quality and safe food products.  Take a look at the Blendex lobby and the awards in the background!
