Contract Packaging Association

Join. Participate. Grow.

To serve the needs of member companies through continuing education, market knowledge and customer relationships. The Contract Packaging Association is the national, nonprofit trade organization for the Contract Packaging industry. Formed in 1992 for contract packaging firms and those businesses related to them, CPA promotes the growth and welfare of member firms through its industry exposure and programs. CPA members are comprised of the nation’s leading contract packagers, which perform all packaging functions; from the simplest to the most complex and from the glamorous to the hazardous. Our members offer these packaging services to an extremely wide variety of consumer goods companies and these services range from manual and semi-automatic to full-speed, high performance packaging lines.

CPA’s objectives include:

  • Programs to establish strong ethical standards among contract packagers and their clients
  • Increase knowledge and expertise within the contract packaging industry
  • Improve the business reputation of firms and the professional image of individuals within the industry
  • Encourage the effective use of contract packaging services.
