Contract packaging involves repackaging various products to produce a custom designed package for distribution or resale. In collaboration with National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and New York State Preferred Source Program (NYSPSP), AVRE currently contracts with the United States Military Commissaries, New York State, and federal distribution channels on several repackaging projects. All direct labor positions in this department are held by individuals who are blind or visually impaired.

Examples of Contract Packaging Partnerships


AVRE partners with the Canberra Corp. of Toledo, Ohio to repackage Jaws (Just Add Water System) cleaning products for resale into the Federal and New York State marketplace. Jaws cleaning products offer an environmentally-conscious alternative to traditional cleaning products. Learn more about Jaws...

Goody Hair Care

Our partnership with Newell-Rubbermaid involves repackaging Goody hair care products for resale into military commissaries in Europe. The line began with just over a dozen products, but has grown to include over 80 items! This is a significant growth area for AVRE as we work with Goody to expand within the military marketplace.
