For every challenge in the market, there is an innovative product response – which we develop together with you for long-term success.
Who we are
We make sure we pay attention to everything: our market and nutrition experts know which raw ingredients and active ingredients are trendy, what is healthy and what tastes good. Together with the food experts, they turn innovative and individual ideas into creative products. Our specialists work closely with the R&D specialists of our sister companies in the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe. In order to find the best solutions for our customers’ needs, we always rely on the latest application technology, comprehensive analytics and flexible pilot systems. And once everything has been tested and approved, SternLife products are manufactured in our modern production facilities in northern Germany.
Our expertise for your label
We monitor your markets and industries, requirements and developments – and proactively develop solutions to support you with the product decision-making and selection.
The selection of suitable raw materials and active ingredients, their correct declaration and endorsement as well as the complex synergistic effects between them are fundamental to the success of product development. With us, you can rely on the many years of expertise we have built up. Whether it’s buying from long-standing partners, storing various raw materials or gaining an in-depth understanding of the effect and flavour of the individual ingredients.
Our development team combines passion, enthusiasm and curiosity. This is how we turn trends and innovative ideas into delicious, functional products. All products undergo extensive development, laboratory and practical tests. This way, we ensure that our products can be applied in every respect and are suitable for your target group and markets before they go into production.
The more appealing the packaging, the greater the impulse to buy. The right packaging solution plays a decisive role in the success of the product. We offer a wide range of packaging units and container sizes and have efficient filling technologies that quickly prepare products for storage, shipping and consumption.
We focus on top quality. In our partnership and in our products. To ensure product quality, our entire production is subject to complex and certified quality management: We act in accordance with the IFS Broker standard and are part of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) to ensure food safety. This is how we live up to our responsibility to ensure the greatest possible safety for your products. Learn more about our current certificates here.
