Berjé is an SQF Certified, family-owned company that has been
in operation for over six decades. The company’s origins and
strengths lie in a profound understanding of the supply and
quality of the diverse raw materials consumed by the flavor and
fragrance industries. This base has been expanded upon to
include fragrances and now botanicals and nutraceuticals following the affiliation with The Whole Herb Company.

We Are Your World-Wide Warehouse
We leverage a worldwide network of producers to ensure uninterrupted supply in markets that are often volatile and unpredictable.
Rapid supply is achieved both in the United States and to a vibrant
and growing export market that now reaches in excess of 60 countries. Our export division accounts for greater than thirty percent
of our business and includes Africa, Europe, South America, Asia
and Australia. Our company headquarters, raw materials repository and manufacturing operation are located in central New Jersey
with satellite warehousing in the Midwestern United States and
Los Angeles. We are poised to move quickly wherever you are.
An Uncommon Inventory
Berjé enjoys an international reputation as a reliable source not
only for mainstream products, but also for the obscure raw materials that often provide the unique twist required by perfumers and
flavorists in the endless search for novel effects. This position allows us to offer a diverse palette of products at competitive pricing.
In 2003 Berjé Trakia was formed in Plovdiv Bulgaria for the manufacture and sourcing of natural essential oils from this important
producing area. We have successfully completed our twelfth year
of Rose and Lavender Oil productions.
In 2009, the Whole Herb Company of Sonoma, CA joined the
Berjé family of companies, adding an extraordinary new chapter to
Berjé’s expanding story. This strategic partnership gives customers
of both companies access to the finest herbs, spices, botanicals,
nutraceuticals, and essential oils on the market.
Berjé’s manufacturing capabilities include blending, filtering,
decolorizing, fragrance compounding, and custom formulation.
Our network of contract manufacturers for distillation and reaction chemistry is well established.
Berjé has established unique relationships with a number of
companies whose proprietary offerings have allowed us to expand our range of products and services and include several truly
innovative raw materials and product lines. Our work in mints
has been enhanced by a working partnership with F.D. Copeland
UK- a worldwide leader in mint processing. An arrangement
with Miltitz in Germany gives us access to a wider range of distillation and reaction chemistry and offers several fine flavor and
fragrance materials to the American market. Berje is the sole U.S.
distributer of the exclusive Synarome line from Nactis- a French
leader in specialty chemicals since 1926.
Berjé maintains within its Carteret facility arguably one of the
largest inventories of raw materials within the United States.
This strong inventory position allows for efficient raw material
supply and fragrance compounding turnaround time, accommodating our customer’s just-in-time inventory requirements.
Over 3000 aromatic chemicals and virtually every commercially
viable essential oil are stocked.
Both service and quality are obsessions at Berjé. All inbound raw
materials are subjected to extensive quality control, where not only
physical variables are monitored, but also composition is evaluated
by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. With our many additional in-house quality assurance tools, as refractive index, specific
gravity, optical rotation, flash points, head space analysis and a variety of wet analysis capabilities, we make every attempt to identify
anomalies that would affect our customers’products. Specific issues
may arise that require outside technical services such as but not limited to carbon dating or biological testing. Berjé has an established
network of facilities capable of completing such tasks.
Our full service includes packaging options, dedicated inventories,
technical support, regulatory guidance, and much more. We also
have our organic certification in place for this growing segment of
our industry. We invite you to learn more about who we are, what
we offer and why there is simply no smarter choice or better partner anywhere in this business.
