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.

1993

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.

1996

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

1998

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

2004

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

2012

Adding Alfredo sauces to our product lines helps our customers expand their sales & offerings too.

Today

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