Food Brand Companies
Dear Innovation Manager, Product Developer, Marketeer and Buyer,
Do you have limited market knowledge and do you lack the capacity to search and find the most suitable Food Contract Manufacturer?
Do you want to change your current Producer or benchmark it?
Then you should bring in Cibus Nexum as your independent intermediary in the food industry.
What about co-manufacturing?
You might think, involving a third party may bring along additional risks and increase cost. Well, global trends and our experience show quite the opposite. Doing business with a good contract manufacturer brings following advantages:
- Flexibility and agility to speed up time-to-market
- Scalability to adapt to your growth
- Access to their knowledge and research and development resources
- Save on cost, resources and assets
- Better budget control in the entire product life cycle.
Of course you might run into a lot of questions and perhaps not know where to start. Making the right preparations are needed to get the best out of a search for possible candidates.
No worries, we are here to help you!
Need for innovation
In the food industry, continuous innovation, product improvement, Time to Market and margin retention are absolute prerequisites to gain and maintain a competitive advantage. Preferably you do all this by yourself, at your own production location.
However, there are plenty of reasons and advantages to outsource production:
- Lower cost
- Higher quality
- Better production capabilities

That’s why Cibus Nexum – We are here to stay
