1. Assess
Cascata engages a potential client in an initial consultative meeting to assess the client’s business needs and objectives. Cascata then outlines the capabilities and services that the company offers to best meet the client’s needs and objectives.
2. Formulate
If the client needs novel formulation work, or enhancement of an existing formulation, Cascata establishes a separate agreement for this development.
3. Quote Inputs
Cascata provides a link to the Cascata Quote Input Tool which is a brief online form to gather the inputs that the company needs to generate your quote. In this form you can request a Full Turn-Key Quote, Partial Turn-Key Quote, or a Tolling + Film + Caps (if spouted pouch) Quote.
4. Quote
Cascata then provides a formal quote for the manufacture of your product with tiered pricing based upon volume.
5. Contract Packaging Agreement
Once the Quote is accepted by the client, Cascata provides a Contract Packaging Agreement to formalize the business relationship between the company and the client. Client then issues first Purchase Order.
6. Quality Agreement
The Cascata Quality Department will work with you to complete a Quality Agreement which specifies the formula, process, packaging, testing, and other parameters for the manufacture of your product.
7. Artwork & Labeling
Final artwork will be provided for the package film, cartons, and master shippers (if applicable). Proofs will be generated and approved by the client prior to printing.
8. Acquire Materials
Once the Purchase Order has been received, the Contract Packaging Agreement signed, the Quality Agreement completed, and a production date schedule, Cascata sources all ingredients and components with sufficient lead time in order to produce the product by the requested date.
9. Quality Control & Testing
All incoming raw material ingredients and components undergo rigorous Quality Control and standard industry tests prior to deployment in the manufacturing process.
10. Production
After passing Quality Control & Testing, raw material ingredients and components are utilized in our state-of-the-art facility and production process to produce the final product packaged in cartons, master shippers, and palletized.
11. Quality Control & Testing
Finished product is quarantined and undergoes rigorous Quality Control and standard industry testing prior to release for shipment.
12. Transportation
After passing Quality Control & Testing, finished product is shipped via the carrier and method specified by the client.
13. Delivery
Product is delivered to the client’s specified destination.
