At Berner, we pride ourselves on commitment across each level of the private label process, as well as the flexibility to adapt as needed to make your product a success. We monitor trends to see what the next grocery success may be.

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 they don’t stop there. They then work to qualify the product, register the product with the FDA, and / or complete heat pen testing to make sure the formula is safe for consumption. At Berner, you can be assured that all of our teams— R&D, Quality Assurance, Operations, Production, Transportation, Sales and Marketing—are working together for you.

EXPERIENCE IN THE INDUSTRY

Berner has served industry leading brands, retailers and wholesalers for over 70 years. Over time, our products and capabilities have changed, but our drive and dedication to our valued customers has not. We continue to partner with companies all over the country looking for exciting and innovative offerings every day. Our team at Berner Foods is second to none when it comes to our level of experience and expertise, industry knowledge, and ethical standards.

PACKAGING MANAGEMENT

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.

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.
