If you are seeking specialty beverages co-packers or private labelers because you lack the capability to develop, manufacture, package and distribute your own beverages, private label beverages from Clover Farms are an excellent alternative.

Clover Farms has gone through many changes since our founding in the rich, rolling hills of Pennsylvania Dutch dairy country. In 1937, we started by milking cows, bottling the milk in glass bottles, and delivering door-to-door via horse-drawn wagons.

Specialty Beverages Co-PackersToday, we are the largest privately owned dairy company in PA, processing fluid milk, heavy cream, Icy Tea, fruit drinks, spring water, as well as eggnog, buttermilk, cottage cheese, sour cream, creamers, and other delicious products, for distribution to many local and regional stores, restaurants, schools and other institutions.

For many of our supermarket, convenience store and retail chain customers, private label Clover Farms beverages represent some of the best-selling products in their stores.

Co-Packing vs. Private Labeling

Most people confuse the terms “co-packing” and “private labeling.” They are not the same, however, and there are some significant differences between them.


Co-packing refers to contract packing, contract packaging, or contract manufacturing. In a nutshell, a third party manufactures, packages and labels products for its clients using the client’s proprietary formula(s).

Some co-packers perform limited operations, with all ingredients provided by the client. Others provide purchasing services for ingredients, as well as shipping and logistics operations.  Co-packing fees vary from project to project.

***Clover Farms does not offer co-packing. If you would prefer to private label the beverages we currently offer or create a custom formula for private labeling, we would be delighted to help!***

Private Labeling

Private labeling refers to products manufactured by one company (e.g., Clover Farms milk, fruit drinks or Icy Teas) for sale under another company’s private label/brand. In other words, you 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 meet your needs. Under a private label agreement, Clover Farms procures the ingredients and manufactures the product(s) while retaining ownership of the Icy Tea formula.

With private labeling, clients have the opportunity to create an image for their brand. Whether building on an existing brand identity or creating a new one, private labeled products can make your brand recognizable.
