About Shearer's Foods, LLC

Headquartered in Massillon, Ohio, Shearer's is a leading contract manufacturer and private label supplier for the snack industries in North America, Asia, Australia, and Central and South America. Shearer's makes and markets high quality conventional, organic, gluten free, non-GMO and kosher salty snacks in assorted flavors and sizes, including kettle cooked potato chips, traditional potato chips tortilla chips, cheese curls, corn puffs, pretzels, and pork rinds. The company also produces snacks, crackers, and cookies under the brands Shearer's, Delicious Bakery, and Vista. Shearer's has eleven facilities in US and Canada, including one platinum LEED-certified food manufacturing facilities in Massillon, Ohio.  


Boasting both company- and partner-branded products, Shearer's has become a top provider of snacks within its industry. It benefits from its vertically-integrated system of manufacturing, warehousing, and delivery.

The company has been expanding its fast-growing private label business through several large strategic purchases in recent years such as Lance Private Brands from Snyder's-Lance, and Medallion Foods from ConAgra.

Shearer's is narrowing its focus on its private label manufacturing business. The company has closed its Brewster, Ohio-based outlet store, which had opened in 1996, to exit its retail operations. Shearer's also invested in a new larger distribution warehouse in Massillon that offers modern loading docks and more storage for trailers and equipment. The company will continue to streamline its manufacturing process with measures such as consolidating suppliers.
