We’re constantly challenging ourselves to be more mindful of the raw materials we use, the way we manufacture the products we sell, and the people we encounter along the way. We aim to provide great-tasting snacks that make us all feel good, while strengthening our industry and our community through sustainable manufacturing.

We strive to create a culture that’s rewarding for all, and we believe it takes all of us to make an impact. At Shearer’s, we do what we say we’re going to do. It’s our number one priority when it comes to our customers, people, quality and safety.

Once a small family operation, Shearer’s is now the leading co-manufacturer and private brand producer of salty snacks in North America. You may not see our name on all the products we make, but the quality speaks for itself.
