GLK has consistently innovated and adapted throughout its 4 generations of food production history. It was the first to use stainless steel vats to produce kraut as well as vacuum systems for loading and unloading tanks, high-speed vertical form-fill-seal equipment, and an automated shredding and sorting process using state-of-the-art lasers and optics.
They’ve also developed a broad range of products including and grab ‘n go single-serve snack items with mass appeals which have helped their bottom line throughout the pandemic as snacking trend grew. Flavored artisanal kraut, shelf-stable kraut in poly bags, and OH SNAP! product line has become a whole new category for pickled vegetable snacks. They will also work with foodservice professionals on developing menu items that help their customers stay at the front of category trends.
As part of its strategy to broaden its market GKL chose OU Kosher Certification which has been part of its clean ingredient panels. GLK’s naturally lacto-fermented, antioxidant-rich, non-GMO, gluten-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free and keto-friendly ingredients and flavors ensures that it will appeal to discerning, health conscious consumers.
