private label

YOUR START-TO-FINISH, ONE-STOP PRIVATE LABEL PROVIDER

At Berner, we help retailers grow market share, differentiate themselves from their competition, and widen profitability with private label brands in a variety of tiers, including entry level, national brand equivalent, premium, super premium, and organic offerings.

Retailers can depend on Berner to create and innovate products of consistently high quality. We take responsibility for every step in the process: contacting and securing ingredients, product development, managing all packaging elements, production, and distribution. We produce and provide a price for all components. Our category insight management offers special data analysis and insights. Add to that an additional 200,000 square feet provided by our new facility, and we have the ability to do more things, better and faster, with an expanded and streamlined process.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Our dedicated R&D team plays a huge role in the process, listening, creating, and modifying until you have exactly what you are looking for, but it doesn’t stop there. They then are qualifying the product, registering the product with the FDA, or doing heat pen testing to make sure the formula is safe. At Berner, you can be assured that all of our teams—R&D and Quality Assurance; Operations, Production and Transportation; Sales and Marketing—are working together for you.

PRIVATE LABEL SUCCESS STORY

One delicious drink leads to a large-scale latte

  • CHALLENGE

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

  • APPROACH

    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.

  • SOLUTION

    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.
