British Contract Manufacturers and Packers Association
The Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics
Since its formation in 2000 the BCMPA has developed into a major force in promoting the services of the UK’s contract manufacturing and packing industry, encompassing a wide range of sectors including food and drink, nutraceutical, chemical, personal care, pharmaceutical, household and more. Over the years, with the increasing demand for end-to-end service and direct to consumer delivery, our members have applied their expertise right across the supply chain, resulting in the decision in early 2019 for the BCMPA to rebrand as the BCMPA - The Association for Contract Manufacturing, Packing, Fulfilment & Logistics.
BCMPA membership has grown year on year and now stands at over 180 members, offering a wide range of choice for customers looking to outsource their projects. The relaunch of the website in 2019 saw a fully responsive design with increased functionality, enabling free access to the BCMPA database and an enhanced Search Facility to shortlist members with the appropriate facilities and services required.
As part of the overall marketing strategy the BCMPA has always placed great emphasis on engaging with relevant trade magazines and associations, participating in trade exhibitions and constantly keeping abreast of the opportunities available to raise the profile of our industry. Most recently we have added a series of resources to our website, providing visitors with information on trade publications, trade associations, and other useful information.
The challenges from Covid-19 during 2020 led to a review of our marketing activity, and we were encouraged to see that new developments to the website were reflected in a significant increase in traffic, underlining the BCMPA’s position as the first port of call for brand owners, retailers, manufacturers and e-commerce companies. During this period the BCMPA membership has risen to the challenge, helping to ensure that vital supplies reach the end consumers and easing the whole supply chain process.
From modest beginnings the BCMPA is now celebrating its 20th year and is recognised nationally and internationally as one of the leading trade bodies in its field.
