INNOVATION FROM
GLK FOODS

Our culture of innovation inspires our product development team to research, explore, test, and create products that sell for our customers and delight consumers.

Tastes and Technology

As the national palate evolves, we offer recipes that satisfy.

GLK Foods is a pioneer. We were the first in the kraut industry to use stainless steel vats, 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. We’ve introduced a variety of products including flavored artisanal kraut, shelf-stable kraut in poly bags, and grab ‘n go single-serve snack items with mass appeal. Our OH SNAP! product line is creating a whole new category for pickled snacking veggies. Plus, GLK Foods is ready to consult on menu items, keeping foodservice professionals on pace with emerging trends.

Manufacturing Expertise

Consistency in our production philosophy.

GLK Foods consistently achieves high levels of excellence thanks to our state-of-the-art processing methods and advanced technology. Plus, our reliable partnerships with family farmers deliver the time-after-time freshness and great taste that consumers want.

Extensive Portions and Packaging

A variety of shapes and sizes to match every need.

Stand-up, gusseted pouches are resealable and our raw kraut pouches include a one-way vent allowing kraut to ferment naturally. Poly bag packaging provides incredible crispness, while cans and jars are familiar and convenient. Barrels and 1-ton totes are also available to meet larger foodservice requirements.

Easy Grab ‘n Go

The latest and greatest trend in food.

The future of snacking combines healthy ingredients with convenience and great taste. OH SNAP! pickled veggies allow for super-easy snacking. With no brine added to minimize the mess, refrigeration keeps them fresh and crunchy.

Kraut is a Healthy Powerhouse!

The health benefits of kraut will Change Your Krautlook

When you feel good, it can change your outlook on life. Kraut is a healthy way to feel good now and down the road:

  • Fights cancer: isothiocyanates found in kraut helps to prevent cancer growth in the breast, colon, lungs, and liver.
  • Helps to reduce the risk of colon cancer: eat cruciferous vegetables several times a week.
  • May help prevent childhood cancer: pregnant mothers who eat kraut pass along Indole-3 Carbinol to their babies.
  • Reduces risk of heart disease: kraut is packed with flavonoids
  • Improves digestion: probiotic bacteria create lactic acid, which provides digestive system balance.
  • Relieves IBS: a clean digestive tract helps reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Plus, kraut is an affordable way to lower cholesterol and can have its sodium reduced with simple rinsing.

Friendly Collaboration

Let’s take it up a notch, together.

Our innovative thinking includes the opportunity to collaborate. GLK Foods is large enough to supply all of your needs, no matter your size and demand, yet we’re small enough to care and work with you. Let us be your ingredient supplier for that menu enhancer or work together to create a unique formulation or exciting new menu item.

Seize the Power of Fermentation

A timeless technique getting a fresh resurgence.

The use of fermentation goes back thousands of years, yet we always find ways to improve on it. Today’s trend towards clean ingredient panels and good digestive health fits perfectly with the goodness of our kraut: naturally lacto-fermented, antioxidant-rich, non-GMO, gluten-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, Kosher, and a good source of vitamin C. And, now in exciting flavors to satisfy the discerning consumer.
