Oberto Brands is a family-owned business[1] that makes All Natural Jerky, beef jerky, pepperoni and other snack sausages.[2][3]


It is headquartered at its primary production facility in Kent, Washington. Oberto also operates under a few other brands, including Lowrey's Meat Snacks, Pacific Gold Meat Snacks[4] and Smokecraft.

Oberto's products are distributed across North America by PepsiCo, however, they do not manufacture said products. Oberto and PepsiCo have since quit their partnership.
