Mike Coutu – Catania Oils

It took less than two weeks on the job as Catania Oils’ new financial controller for Mike Coutu to identify the one glaring weakness in the company’s process-efficiency efforts—other than using old plastic sight tubes to gauge Catania’s massive vats of olive and vegetable oils by eye, that is. “You could tell just by looking […]

Be it fresh or processed, whole or cut, organic or conventional, specialty or staple, produce brings out the passion in Anthony Bondi. It’s tasty, healthy and the source of what’s been a fulfilling livelihood for nearly three decades. “It’s in the blood, this enthusiasm for produce—might have something to do with my Sicilian ancestry,” exclaims […]

Fine Choice Foods Ltd.

In many cities, they’re as ubiquitous a menu item as burgers or buffalo wings. Stuffed with chicken, pork or vegetables, steamed and pan-fried to crispy-brown perfection, pot stickers have become a bite-sized bellwether for North America’s growing love of Asian cuisine.

Alimentos MAC

Due to its excellent Caribbean location, the Dominican Republic has the presence of different and world-renowned chains of fast food restaurants. This led to the McDonald’s chain of fast food arriving in this country in 1996, initially located in Santo Domingo, capital of the island nation. A year later, taking advantage of the expansion model that […]

Damon Schramm – Bite Squad

Merrill Lynch is bullish on America. So is Bite Squad, but primarily on Middle America—the large towns and smaller cities that don’t so often appear on the radar screens of its bigger competitors. Hence a land of opportunity for a still-young company that’s filling the niche of delivering freshly cooked restaurant meals to customers who […]
