Social Enterprise Greenhouse Co-Manufacturing for Early Stage, High Growth Food and Beverage Companies
September 6 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join us for lunch with Jeremy Halpern, co-chair of Nutter’s Food and Beverage Group, to discuss the benefits, risks, and traps of working with contract manufacturing partners.
Early stage, high growth food and beverage companies frequently turn to outside partners when launching their brands. These commercial partnerships can be a critical part of ensuring a brand’s success – but they can also be a recipe for disaster. Our discussion will focus on the tactical and strategic issues, from both the business and legal perspectives, surrounding contract manufacturing. Topics will include selection, capabilities, value creation, costs, reputation, exclusivity, risk allocation, goal alignment, non-competition, quality assurance, work flow, scalability, recall management, termination, and equity grants.
