Prototype My Food

Are you an entrepreneur with a stellar recipe?
Ready to commercialize and scale?

Schedule a prototype with our team. We will work with you to turn your recipe into a commercial formula, select appropriate packaging, generate a compliant label, and create a prototype of your product.

The WFMPC offers prototyping services from November-May.

Co-packing

Are you an established business looking for co-packing support?
We can help!

The WMFPC specializes in hot pack and hold processing for shelf-stable prepared and acidified foods. Additionally, we offer slow and individual-quick-freeze processing. If your food product doesn’t fit into these categories, please give us a call to discuss. If it does, please submit an interest form to connect with our team.

Value-Added

Turn your crops into value-added products!

The Western MA Food Processing Center can turn your crops into value added products. We offer 12 recipes for products that will feature your tomatoes, peppers, cukes, root veggies, apples and more! Farmers deliver the key ingredient(s) to Greenfield and the WMFPC team will process, bottle, label and pack for you. We provide bottle, lid, label and case. Farmers sell finished product at their farms stands, as part of CSA’s and in the wholesale market.

About Us

The Western MA Food Processing Center was created in 2001 to support new and growing food businesses as they navigate the path of bringing a food product to market. The WMFPC offers rental manufacturing space as well as co-packing services to food businesses in the commonwealth and beyond. We also work with local farms to make value-added products, like jams, sauces, pickles and purees. In addition to these services, our team also provides one-on-one counseling and technical assistance, supporting you with business planning, product development, regulatory compliance, food safety and more. Our mission is to promote economic development through entrepreneurship, provide opportunities for sustaining local agriculture, and promote best practices for food producers.
