This article explains our minimum order requirements for Canada and some insight into why they exist.
Minimum order quantity, or MOQ, refers to the lowest number of individual pouches (or impressions for roll stock). Minimum order value refers to the lowest dollar amount for an order.
Finished pouches are printed, laminated, and converted into individual bags to be filled by the customer or their copacker. The minimum order value for finished pouches is CAD 3,500.
Rollstock is a printed and laminated roll of film, which then is shipped to the customer or copacker for forming and filling. An order of rollstock from ePac comes with a minimum order value of CAD 2,500. The number of impressions printed on a minimum order is 10,000 per SKU.
Per SKU Minimums
One of the benefits in choosing ePac as your flexible packaging provider is the ability to batch your different SKUs into a single order. This can be flavor varieties of a product, or even different brands with the same size, materials, and features. A SKU order quantity can be as low as 1,000. For example, if you were running 5 SKUs together, the order size would need to be at least 5,000 pouches.
