Dakota, Illinois-based Berner Food & Beverage LLC is helping retailers take advantage of the growing ready-to-drink coffee market with a blueprint to capture private label beverage sales.
As a one-stop beverage provider for retailers, Berner’s beverage program allows retailers to offer their own range of RTD coffee beverages. Berner’s is a private label and contract manufacturing supplier of food and beverage products.
“Our award-winning R&D team develops premium fresh-brewed RTD coffees with the most popular flavors to deliver successfully proven products,” said Tyler Kneubuehl, director of marketing and analytics. “We are constantly working to create the next great beverage innovation to ensure retailers continue to grow beverage sales. We recently launched several beverages as part of our seasonal offerings including a Premium Raspberry Mocha Latte and a naturally-flavored Toasted Coconut Iced Latte. Berner continues to invest in extensive retort capabilities and our expanded facilities allow us to deliver great-tasting beverages in bottles or cans, in a variety of packaging sizes, ranging from 9.5 ounces to some of the smaller trending sizes such as 6.5 ounces.”
Berner’s beverage program includes popular RTD coffee drinks such as cold brew coffee, RTD iced lattes and coffee energy drinks.
