Co-Packing Projects: The Lemonaders Team (www.Lemonaders.com) wants to work with contract manufacturers directly who need a ‘bridge team’ who can both recruit new co-packing project clients as well can be a process management team for new start-up and emerging brand clients.
New Co-Packing Clients
The Lemonaders Team has a number of mechanisms available when it relates to recruiting new co-packing projects. The team has websites, TV shows and visits over 50 trade shows annually.
Our Own Rosters:
From its extensive reach into the industry the Lemonaders Team
has a strong series of rosters of food brand groups (start-up, emerging and established). Since they also come from some of the largest food companies in the world they do have a strong reach to larger companies as well.
Trade Associations/Trade Shows:
The team is involved with a number of industry trade shows (NACS, Fancy Food, Expo West/Expo East, NAMA, IDDBA, etc) which we look for new start-up and emerging brands for our internal incubation programs.
The team is involved with a number of incubators and accelerators as an advisory group talking about the needs for creating and launching brands.
State Department of Agriculture Programs:
The Lemonaders Team
created its own State Proud
site which is involved as an advisory group to State Departments of Agriculture (and their brand members).

The team owns a number of industry sites (ex RetailFormats.com) which helps clients on a number of subjects.
Commercial Kitchens Association: Lemonaders
is a co-founder of the new Commercial Kitchens Association
which is a direct link to helping new start-up brands evolve from a commercial kitchen into a co-packing relationship.
The team’s Co-Packing.org is being created to being a resource educating manufacturers, co-packers and private label groups on the benefits of becoming members of the main co-packing / contract packaging association in America today, CPA (Contract Packaging Association –www.ContractPackaging.org)
The Lemonaders Team
itself has a Television Production Group with a number of TV shows (ex www.EntrepreneuronTV.com

The Lemonaders Team has created an incubation program specifically for start-up brands through its own sites including www.Lemonaders.com. The model includes a complete source for everything needed as well as access to funding resources throughout America.
