Research & Development Expertise

Berner’s dedicated R&D team plays a huge role in the process—listening, creating, and modifying until you have exactly what you want, until we get it just right. We take our client’s concept, convert it into a prototype, test it, and—when ready—deploy a comprehensive commercialization and production effort. Our proven steps include the following:

  • Retort thermal processing
  • Clean label and organic capabilities
  • Qualifying the product
  • Registering the product with the FDA
  • Completing heat pen testing to make sure the formula is safe for consumption
  • Rapid speed to market


At Berner, you benefit from our long-standing relationships with suppliers who provide packaging, bottles, jars, cans and labels to make your product safe, eye-catching and shelf stable. Though our methods are tried and true, we also try new things. Want a different size? A unique bottle shape? We provide testing to ensure that your idea ends up a success.



How Concepts Become the Next Big Beverage Trend


    Our customer came to us with a great-tasting, perfectly-flavored latte sample—but with no means to produce it.


    With our eager-to-solve, collaborative attitude, we got to work with our customer to determine exactly what was needed to ramp them up to full commercialization and production.


    Our stage-gate process followed the product from beginning to end, through scale-up testing, quick high-volume production runs, and final delivery. We were happy to help bring this tasty idea to life as a viable commercial product, and our customer was pleased to be able to fill their high-volume order on time, as promised.
