I'm looking for a copacker for samosas/empanadas (frozen pastry). I'd prefer someone located in the southeast.

thanks!

Answer
Two web sites with lists of co-packers are:

http://www.findacopacker.com/

You can also ask the extension professor at the land grant university in the area in which you are interested. Florida, Univ. of Georgia, Clemson, North Carolina State, and LSU all have food science departments whose faculty know the local food industry and who might be qualified for your products.
