About Clover Farms
Clover Farms, based in Reading, PA, originated in the rich, rolling hills of Pennsylvania Dutch dairy country in 1937. Today, we are the largest privately owned dairy company in PA and produce a wide range of milk and dairy products, as well as ready-to-drink iced tea, fruit juices and fruit drinks. We have a tradition of quality, freshness and flavor that is embodied in each and every refreshment that bears our name.
Why Ready-To-Drink Iced Tea?
Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world (after water), and it’s healthy whether you drink it hot or iced. It contains polyphenols – antioxidants that repair cells and help the body fend off cardiovascular diseases, cancers, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus and other maladies. And, contrary to popular belief, it’s not just green tea that offers health benefits. Black tea, the main ingredient in Clover Farms Icy Teas, also contains health-giving flavonoids and polyphenols.
Although water is the top-selling beverage in the U.S., and sales of soft drinks, sports drinks, and fruit beverages continue to decline, ready-to-drink tea is steadily growing in popularity.
According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation, sales of tea bags, iced tea mix, loose leaf tea, and single-serve tea all declined in 2018, while ready-to-drink tea grew both in volume and value, reaching an estimated $10.75 billion in sales.
Research shows that black tea remains the most popular bottled tea (30%). Green tea accounts for 25% thanks to health-conscious consumers, and millennials prefer flavored teas and specialty teas.

How Private Labeling at Clover Farms Works
Private labeling refers to products manufactured by one company (e.g., Clover Farms Icy Teas, milk, fruit drinks, or lemonade) for sale under another company’s private label. In other words, we will put your label on our existing beverages.
In some cases, an exclusive formula can be created for you, or our current formula can be adjusted to suit your needs. Under a private label agreement, we procure the ingredients and manufacture the product(s) while retaining ownership of the Icy Tea recipes.
To recap, private labeling can help you address the needs of your customers without worrying about ingredient sourcing and procurement, certifications, and the time-consuming manufacturing process. If successful, you may even create a best seller!
