Item reviewed

Working With Us

The journey from product idea to retail success can be a challenge—it helps to have an experienced guide helping along the way. Since 1976, LiDestri has harnessed consumer insights, market knowledge and innovative spirit to provide co-packing and retail brand customers with the resources needed to bring products from the drawing board to the hands of consumers.


Customer Collaboration

With the food market more competitive than ever, speeding ideas to retail is essential.

That’s why LiDestri taps into deep market knowledge, consumer insight and technical capabilities to quickly and efficiently launch innovative food products. Along the road to success, the staff collaborates with customers and taps into resources such as the Innovation Center to test ideas, formulations, packaging and other product aspects to ensure the end results meet high standards, exceed customer expectations and attract consumers.


Family Approach

Although LiDestri as a company has grown leaps and bounds since it opened in 1976, the organization remains a tight-knit, family company. This philosophy touches on nearly every aspect of the operation, from giving every customer a high level of care and attention, to forming partnerships with trusted industry suppliers, to the way the leadership team encourages employees to do the best.


Recipe For Success

The LiDestri team searches coast to coast for the best fresh ingredients, bringing decades of industry experience and market knowledge to each food item produced. The company’s wealth of food innovation resources is unmatched in the industry. These range from experienced researchers and state-of-the-art testing technology in the Innovation Center to innovative ingredient sourcing (such as an in-house basil farm) to impressive processing and packaging equipment in production facilities. LiDestri’s team gives each customer excellent effort throughout the process, which results in consumers later enjoying high-quality products at retail.
