High quality growing mixes
Berger responsibly selects and processes raw materials with meticulous handling methods in all of eight North American manufacturing facilities.
Moreover, we take pride in our first-quality ingredients for every one of our growing mixes. Each component offers characteristics that are carefully evaluated and integrated into our specific-purpose blends to optimize growing results.
From raw material to growing media packaging, each harvesting, storage and processing stage has its own range of testing requirements, which enables Berger to make real-time adjustments.
More than 280,000 quality tests are done annually in our laboratories and manufacturing plants — our strong expertise guarantees the highest product efficiency on the market.
The quality control system at Berger is what ensures that proper care is applied to every processing step, to provide professional growers with uniform products of superior quality, regardless of the manufacturing site or the season they were produced.
Berger offers products of undeniable quality, and that excellence in every aspect of our activities is confirmed by several certifications recognized worldwide.
