Consumer Goods manufacturers and distributors, for several decades now, have been significant buyers of contract packaging and manufacturing services. This cost effective solution for right sizing their manufacturing and marketing businesses continues to be robust into today`s economy. Every indication and survey indicates this trend will continue at significant levels across the United States. A recent survey indicated that eighty-four percent (84%) of responding from the cosmetic & personal care industry either use or plan to use contract packaging and/or manufacturer during the upcoming twelve months, or do so at this time. This large percentage of outsourcing represents an even greater of contracted business activity than a previous survey taken, but this could be a sign of the improving economic conditions within the United States and/or the fact that projects are now ``on again`` vs. being on hold or pending approval.
