heritage

committed to quality principles for over 70 years

Our long-term success has grown along with our trusted history. From a family owned dairy product processor based on a European heritage of quality, we have grown and diversified into a leading producer of dips, cheese sauces, aerosol cheeses, and the best-selling beverage items on the shelf today.

1943

Berner begins when Arnold Kneubuehl starts making locally sourced natural Swiss cheese. Quality Assurance is there at the very start, for fundamental consumer-pleasing taste & complete product safety.

With our first R&D person onboard, we develop and manufacture a new product—hot-fill retail processed cheese, the catalyst of our private label business.

1993

1996

Aerosol cheese in a can joins our product line, adding more business–and more fun!

We add retort processing & make our way into the snack aisle, with shelf stable salsa con quesos & more.

1998

2004

We make a splash when we introduce canned & bottled milk-based beverages and begin to offer contract manufacturing.

Berner Food & Beverage is the leading U.S. producer of private label aerosol cheese, jar cheese, retort salsa con queso & shelf stable dips, retort iced latte, and coffee energy beverages.
