Press Releases
Zero Sugar and Grass-Fed Beef Pair Well in New Jerky from Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks, Inc.

Tillamook, Oregon · September 3, 2019 – Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. (Werner Jerky), a jerky and snack manufacturer based in Tillamook, Oregon, has launched a new product into the meat snack category with a zero sugar beef jerky made with grass-fed beef. This new product comes packaged in a 2-ounce bag in three flavors: Original, Salt & Pepper and Unsweetened Teriyaki-Style. Each recipe is formulated with 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams Total Carbs and 18 grams of protein per serving.

“We have seen other beef jerky brands touting either zero sugar or grass-fed beef, but few are paring the two together,” explains President and Co-Founder of Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc., Ken Werner. “This new product really elevates the Werner brand and brings a unique product to the category.”

Werner’s Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed beef jerky is an all-natural product, crafted in small batches, minimally processed with no artificial ingredients and gluten free. There are no added nitrites, nitrates or MSG.

“It’s definitely not going to be the sweet beef jerky consumers are accustomed to, but there is a lot of research out there to support this kind of product,” describes Lauren Seeger, Director of Marketing for Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. “With the high protein and lean grass-fed beef, this product line really is a true meat snack and aligns perfectly with those following Paleo, Keto, Whole30 and other special diet programs.”

As consumer preferences continue to evolve when it comes to food, snack producers and manufacturers continue to innovate in order to stay relevant. “Approximately 45 million US consumers diet each year, both commercial and self-subscribed”, according to a 2019 US News report from Boston Medical Center. Additionally, a recent Mintel survey highlighted, “74% of consumers agree that a healthy diet should be low in sugar.” A 2019 Proprietary National Consumer Survey orchestrated by FONA International shows 56% of consumers say they are consuming less sugar than one year ago and that 36% of consumers use the Nutritional Facts Panel on food products to reduce their overall sugar intake.

The Werner Jerky introduction of their Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky comes just in time for Expo East 2019 in Baltimore, MD where samples of Werner Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky will be available for attendees to try. Natural Products Expo East takes place September 12-14th and Werner Jerky will be in booth #2014.

Werner’s Zero Sugar, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky is currently available online at WernerJerky.com and in the Werner retail outlet in Tillamook, Oregon, with commercial distribution beginning the end of September.

Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. Celebrates 25 Years of Business, Introduces New Brand and Packaging

Tillamook, Oregon · May 1, 2019 – Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. (Werner Jerky), a jerky and snack manufacturer based in Tillamook, Oregon, is celebrating 25 years of business with a new look for their packaging and brand identity.

“Our new brand embodies the attributes and values we built our business on and it is our hope that these values shine through to our customers and consumers in our packaging,” explains President and Co-Founder of Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc., Ken Werner. “Our new brand highlights how there’s nothing quite like working with the people you love the most and that with family, you’d better be ready for everything. We built our family-run business together from the ground up, with decades of hard-earned knowledge (and a few family squabbles) in every recipe. Our new look really tells this story.”

Founded in 1994, Werner Jerky began as a two-person operation in the family garage. In the early days, husband and wife team, Ken and Karla Werner, were both producers and distributors of their meat snack products.  Today, Werner Jerky employs over 120 people and processes their products in a modern 85,000 square foot facility in the heart of Tillamook County. Their products can be found across the country and internationally.

Although the company has seen significant growth in the past 25 years, the one thing that has never changed is their adherence to a mission of providing the highest quality, best tasting jerky, meat sticks and snack products. In fact, earlier this year, Werner Jerky announced they were updating their whole muscle jerky to all-natural formulations. Previously, the company had separate All-Natural jerky products.

“We know consumers today are looking for clean labels, with easy to read and healthy ingredients,” explains Lauren Seeger, Director of Marketing for Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. “Our shift to using all-natural recipes for our entire whole muscle jerky line just made sense.”

While their look is changing after a quarter of a century, what’s inside each package will still be the same high-quality, great tasting product consumers have become accustomed to.
