Fit Foods Ltd., the manufacturers and distributors of Whey Gourmet®, PVL, Maxx Essentials and North Coast Naturals, announced the hiring of Tom Stewart as Operations Manager. Mr. Stewart joins Fit Foods Ltd. from Hain Celestial, Canada, where he held the position of Production Manager. Tom will oversee all aspects of the company’s manufacturing and plant operations.
Tom joins Fit Foods Ltd. just 5 months after Fit Foods announced another major hire; industry veteran Greg Cowan as Director of Sales, in July. Fit Foods appears to be poising for growth in this tumultuous financial climate.
“Landing an executive with experience in larger food manufacturing facilities is a huge win for our company,” said Jim McMahon, CEO of Fit Foods. “Tom brings a vast array of talents backed by tremendous experience. His knowledge from Hain Celestial, Sun Rich Fresh Foods, and Lilydale Foods will greatly enhance our manufacturing ability and allow us to attain our own growth plans. Tom has a background in quality assurance as well which makes him the perfect candidate to work in our multi-federally licensed plant.”
“I’m absolutely thrilled to bring my experience in operations, quality assurance, leadership and GMP to a growing vibrant business like Fit Foods,” stated Tom Stewart. “I am eager to work with the team in the high pace environment and to manufacture the brands produced by Fit Foods to surpass industry quality standards.”
