Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks is still family owned (despite all the arguments) and proudly produces top quality meat snacks, trail mixes, roasted nuts, and candies on the Oregon Coast
Born and raised in Tillamook, Oregon, Ken & Karla Werner built Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks from the ground up. In 1994, Ken & Karla started making beef jerky in their garage at home. When the jerky was ready, Ken would load up their family minivan with beef jerky to drive up and down the north Oregon Coast, selling Werner Beef Jerky to local shops and stores. People loved the savory taste and homemade feel of their jerky and the Werner Brand soon became a local favorite.
Today, Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks operates in a modern, 100,000 square foot facility located in the heart of Tillamook, Oregon. As the company has grown, one thing that has never changed is a philosophy of quality first, a sincere appreciation of their customers, many of whom have become close friends, and a heartfelt dedication to creating high-quality, great-tasting snack products.
