Florida-based Versatile Packagers provides alcohol, tobacco distributors, retailers with contract packaging services, including promotional packaging for Bacardi, Coca-Cola

TAMPA, Florida , December 19, 2011 (press release) – Florida-based contract packaging company, Versatile Packagers, has been working with alcohol and tobacco distributors and retailers, to provide contract packaging services.

A representative of Versatile Packagers, explains, "We receive cigars in bulk packaging and convert them in to multipacks for our clients. We typically package varieties of cigars into 5-packs, 10-packs, 16-packs, and 20-packs. Many times we will package the products into humidors or other types of special packaging for the holidays."

Packaging or repackaging alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, which requires special licensing from Department of Business and Professional Regulation, is just one of the many services Versatile Packagers offers companies within these industries. Versatile Packagers utilizes its warehouse space for product storage, fulfillment and distribution.

The Company Representative adds, "Redoing or undoing an existing type of packaging to reflect new standards is increasingly popular with alcohol distributors as well. Since 2005 we have repackaged and put together promotional packaging for Bacardi and Coke, Alize and Cognac, Buy One Get One Free Wine Bottles and more."

Outsourcing alcohol and tobacco product fulfillment activities to one location not only decreases freight time, but reduces the costs associated with inventory movement and storage space. Outsourcing additionally eliminates companies' peak staffing problems, avoids the cost of chasing the latest technologies and relieves executive teams from day-to-day process managing.

In addition, Versatile Packagers announced the finished construction of a new clean room at their 150,000 square foot facility last month. The new room is utilized for packaging when the process requires a high level of product safety and quality. Clean rooms offer contamination control and protection against external influences following production. The finished products retain the purity in which the client has invested, right up until they are in the hands of the customer.
