We have earned a solid reputation of quality, service and commitment with customers in both the commercial and government sectors. Developing our facility to have best-in-class equipment and processes has served us well in securing long-term US government contracts and select commercial engagements.
Our engagement with the US Government has prospered for more than 16 years:
2001 – Gained our first contract with the USDA to package and distribute powdered milk for the U.S. domestic feeding program
2003 – Began packaging powdered milk to support humanitarian aid efforts in the Middle East, under the oversight of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
2005 – Began blending dairy shake MREs for the Department of Defense
2005 – Recognized as Contractor of the Year by the U.S. Ability One Commission
2007 – Recognized as Contractor of the Year by the U.S Ability One Commission
2009 – Reached a significant production milestone, with 100 million pounds of powdered milk packaged for the USDA
2010 – Recognized as Contractor of the Year by the U.S. Ability One Commission
2012 – Collaborated with USAID to formulate SuperCereal Plus (SC+), a literally life-sustaining product that provides sustenance for famished children, ages 6 months to 2 years. Today we are one of only two U.S. organizations that produce this special formulation, which is distributed worldwide through the World Food Programme.
Members of our team speak weekly with USDA contracting officers, keeping close touch on orders and needs. We attend collaborative gatherings of government stakeholders, other contracting firms, and humanitarian aid agencies to stay on top of what’s’ needed in product development and service for those that these government agencies serve.
Our Growth – The Commercial Sector
The advanced equipment and processes in the Cermount facility is well suited to the demands of commercial consumer product companies. Over the past 15 years we’ve helped commercial clients develop, refine, produce and launch dozens of dry food and supplement products, including:
- Pancake mixes
- Cake mixes
- Nuts and nut mixes
- Sugar substitutes
- Dry beverages and drink mixes
- Superfood blends
- Powdered nutritional supplements
- Herbal supplement capsules
Our capable staff are able to collaborate with commercial customers all along their product launch continuum, from formulation to ingredient sourcing to packaging recommendations to operational planning to in-store displays.
We value the choice of our many of our commercial customers to keep their contract manufacturing relationships private, so do not openly reveal their names. We are, however, able to share “name-neutral” case studies of how we’ve served them while exploring options with new customers looking for contract manufacturing solutions.
