What Are MOQs And Why Do We Have Them?

Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs) play a pivotal role in the packaging industry, dictating the smallest quantity of products a supplier is willing to produce in a single production run. At EcoPackables, MOQs are set for various reasons, ensuring the efficiency and sustainability of our processes.

Why MOQs?

MOQs are crucial for optimizing production efficiency and maintaining sustainable practices. They streamline manufacturing processes, reduce material waste, and uphold environmental commitments. At EcoPackables, our MOQs are carefully determined to align with our sustainability goals while catering to our clients' needs.

EcoPackables' MOQs:

  • For Most Products: Our standard MOQ stands at 5,000 units, ensuring efficient production runs while accommodating various client requirements.
  • Recycled Polybags and Pouches: We set our MOQ at 10,000 units for recycled polybags and pouches. This higher quantity enables us to maximize the utilization of recycled materials, reducing environmental impact and promoting circular economy principles.
  • Boxes: Recognizing the importance of smaller orders, our MOQ for boxes is set at 500 units. This lower threshold allows for flexibility, catering to diverse packaging needs while upholding sustainability standards.

Striking the Balance

MOQs are a balancing act between meeting client demands and maintaining eco-friendly practices. At EcoPackables, while our MOQs serve as guidelines for efficient and sustainable production, we understand the diverse needs of our clients. We prioritize flexibility and collaboration. For instance, if an order doesn't meet the specified unit count but reaches a minimum cost of $2,500, we're committed to finding a solution that works. Moreover, for larger polymailer orders, we're often able to reach the minimum cost threshold at quantities as low as 3,000 units, ensuring that even smaller orders can align with our sustainable practices while meeting your packaging needs. Our goal is to collaborate and find solutions that meet both your requirements and our sustainability standards, ensuring a harmonious partnership in creating eco-friendly packaging solutions tailored to your needs.
