Private labels

For decades, private labels and house brand have taken a greater place in supermarkets and distributors’ food services catalogues.

Alternatives of lesser quality with a lower price points, they have become, for some, trusted brands offering good value. At Berthelet, we were among the first North American manufacturers to offer products from popular family restaurants in Canadian grocery stores. We were also among the first to offer a line of products that was economical, but always consistent, reliable, and tasty. Today, Berthelet puts all its experience, talent, creativity, and expertise at the service of different industries looking for a reliable, well established partner. We are private label experts.

A flexible brand for retailers who care about quality

When we set out to several years ago to make our mark in Canadian and American markets, one of the tools we wanted to have at our disposal was a brand that retailers could use to test different products and concepts before making a choice and the investments necessary to create private label and house brand products.

This brand is called Five Forks, and is intended to be accessible, simple, and appealing. Thanks to this brand, we have even more flexibility and can significantly reduce our response time. A fine brand. Excellent products. Enormous flexibility.
