5 Ways to Verify Reliable Packaging Suppliers for First-time Collaboration

Is this the first time your business is engaging with a new packaging supplier? Despite your research, are you still unsure about the supplier’s credentials? Haplast shares 5 ways to confirm the credibility of packaging suppliers when entering into a first-time partnership.

Online Profile Verification

To save time and avoid the hassle of searching for alternative suppliers, businesses should verify the company’s capability profile through various media channels, especially Google. Utilizing Google to find customer reviews helps confirm the reliability of the packaging suppliers in your consideration. 

What do other business owners say about their purchasing experience with that supplier? Can they fulfill orders and adhere to delivery timelines? Any red flags may pose potential issues for your business.

Check Certificates and Accreditation

Once the profile verification is complete and initial meetings have taken place, businesses should request the supplier to provide certificates and relevant documentation related to product quality and standards. In the packaging industry, certain certifications like ISO 9001, SGS, TUV OK, etc., indicate a commitment to quality and environmental protection. The more certificates, the greater the proof of credibility.

Factory Visits

For trading suppliers who may not have a manufacturing facility, if a business genuinely wants to collaborate with that supplier, conducting factory checks and visits is crucial. A direct visit to the factory helps businesses inspect the production process, technology used, and working conditions. This step also allows businesses to assess the supplier’s infrastructure and production capabilities.

Sample Product Requests

Every supplier will have varying capacities to meet different product requirements. To ensure the supplier can produce the specific products your business needs, request sample products to assess quality, professionalism, and suitability. Sample products allow businesses to see the supplier’s manufacturing capabilities and design proficiency.

Seek References from Reliable Sources

Referring to reputable business partners or industry sources is a practical way for businesses to save time on verification. Positive feedback from previous partners indicates the supplier’s reliability, aiding businesses in making informed decisions.
