OUR INNOVATIVE EXPERTISE

Innovation isn't optional anymore in today's food, beverage and spirits businesses: Companies know they must continually develop new products with creative flavors and healthy formulations in order to grab and hold market share. Fortunately, innovation is in our family company's DNA, and we combine that inventive nature with state-of-the-art facilities and unparalleled experience in bringing new products to market. Please take a virtual tour of our Innovation Center, and then come see us in person!

our capabilities

Our capabilities explained in just six words: You need it, we got it! Yes, that’s a bit simplistic, a little boastful and not exactly eloquent, but it’s absolutely spot on. With four decades of experience, state-of-the-art facilities and seasoned professionals in food, beverages and spirits, LiDestri can provide a comprehensive range of products and services that is one word: amazing.

In food, we’re specialists in sauces, salsas, dips and can get up-to-speed for whatever you need. We produce beverages as classic as orange juice and as hip as an organic sipping drink rich with antioxidants. Our spirits team can produce the entire back bar if you need it, including the ultra contemporary (and delicious) flavored liquors that are flying of the shelves. And across all of those lines we have specialists solely dedicated to producing and improving processing techniques and packaging for everything we produce.

OUR INNOVATION CENTER

For most consumer product R&D companies – whether working on a soup, sauce, salsa, or spirit – manufacturing happens on two scales: small-batch and full-scale production. That approach is limited, since what works in a test kitchen may not translate to a scalable mass-market product.
The LiDestri Innovation Center is the answer to that problem.

Created in 2014, the Innovation Center provides our national brand and private-label partners with the facilities, equipment, and expertise necessary to develop products from scratch in an environment that accurately simulates full-scale production from high pressure processing (HPP) to Tetra Aseptic. Our product development connoisseurs, certified tasters, process improvement experts, and packaging designers help our partners improve their existing products to craft and produce some amazing original offerings.
