Our History

CoSo started in June 2007 with 822m2  factory space in Midrand, Johannesburg. From the start, our focus was to provide a contract packing solution focused on dry foods such as powders and flakes. Since our humble beginnings we have now grown to include over 4800m2  factory floor space across various split units. Currently we employ 250 staff, servicing a multi-national customer base.
