Company Ownership - Privately Owned
Berjé is a family-owned business that has been in operation for seven decades.
The company’s strength lies in a profound understanding of the supply and the quality of the diverse raw materials consumed by the flavor and fragrance industries. The Bleimann family, the Berjé family, and the families of our farmers are united in our one ambition; sustainable business practices for the future.
Berjé strives to carry an inclusive selection of Essential Oils, Aromatic Chemicals, and Flavor Ingredients. Much of our expertise lies in essential oils and natural derivatives. Having drawn these extracts from a wide range of global suppliers, we keep multiple grades of oils and derivatives in stock to accommodate any number of specifications. From containers of citrus oils to custom quantities of Boronia Absolute, we provide the full spectrum of naturally derived ingredients.
Berjé also maintains an inventory of thousands of aroma chemicals and flavor ingredients. Our selection of esters, phenols, pyrazines, sweeteners, and cooling ingredients is nearly comprehensive for flavor use. Combined with the Whole Herb Company, our sister company, we can offer ingredients both as botanicals and in their extract form across a broad listing of spices, teas, and blends.
Berjé has been supplying essential oils, aromatic chemicals, flavor, fragrance, and functional ingredients since 1949. With humble beginnings, Berjé was founded by Julius “Les” and Alexander Bleimann in the industrial section of lower Manhattan area in what has now become the fashionable SoHo. Kim Bleimann joined the company in 1973 at Berjé’s second location in Long Island City. Under Kim’s leadership and established experience, Berjé continued to grow, transitioning into it’s current facility in Carteret, NJ. In 1998 Berjé strengthened the company’s position to producer and distiller with the formation of Berjé Trakia.
