Pacific Team

nourishing our community

As our company grows, so do our employee numbers. Our workforce has increased to over 600. To put happy, healthy employees first, we provide exercise, nutrition and sustainability programs that reward people for leading healthier lives - like taking health screenings and committing to regular exercise. But why stop there? Our Sustainable Commuter Program encourages people to use alternative transportation to get to work. And since 2013 our Community Store has provided access to high quality, nourishing foods for Pacific employees (as well as local non-profits and regional food deserts). Its shelves boast every Pacific Foods product, plus fresh organic veggies, meat and eggs from our founder's farms, as well as local dairy products and specialty items - all at deep discounts to enable healthier eating habits. It's another way we reward each other around the clock for making good choices for our health. Because that's what families do.


Vision starts at the top.

Meet the leadership team that inspires us to reach for our goals.


Joe Folds - President

“It is a real honor to be part of an organization that has such a powerful and inspiring purpose.  It comes to life in everything we do: from making great tasting and nutritious foods using simple ingredients to nourishing our employees, playing an active role in our community, and being thoughtful about our impact on the environment.  Our ambition to "Nourish Every Body" drives the work that we do every day.”


Kevin Tisdale - VP of Marketing

“I’m proud to work for a company that is doing its part to help with food insecurity by encouraging its employees to volunteer and pack food boxes with nourishing Pacific Foods products for families in need. I feel inspired knowing that these food boxes are delivered to local schools so that children and their families can enjoy nutritious meals and not worry about where their next meal is coming from, especially during school breaks.”


Kathy Murray - VP of Human Resources

“Pacific Foods is a very special place where nourishment comes in many different forms. Our desire to Nourish Every Body isn’t demonstrated just through the nutritious food we make, we apply it to everything we do for our employees and community. Competitive pay and benefit programs, well-being and engagement initiatives as well as training and development opportunities support our team. Being able to positively change the landscape of food insecurity through our unique food donation programs not only supports our community, it brings us all together for the greater good.”


Greg Thorsgard - VP of Sales

“There are so many worthy organizations and causes to support, we just have to choose what inspires us and make the time. One of the things I appreciate most about Pacific is that just by being part of the team I feel I’m making a contribution. And when I meet buyers and introduce them to our brand and our products, I get to see firsthand how Pacific’s approach to developing carefully sourced, nourishing foods, and our commitment to sustainability, animal welfare and food access help create strong relationships with retailers who share our values.”


Joe McCarthy - VP of Operations

“Pacific Foods’ commitment to providing high quality, healthy food choices is one of the main reasons I wanted to join this dynamic team.  Knowing that the company takes nutrition so seriously and wants to provide excellent options to everyone regardless of their personal situation really resonates with my entire family.”


Terri Weaver - Director of Product Development

“When we create new products, we always want them to be healthy and nourishing. Whether the products are meant to be eaten as is, or used as a starting point for a family recipe, they should bring only great things to the table and be just what you would make at home if you had the time.”


Tammy Hess - Director of Finance

“For me, if a food is nutritious it should also be delicious.  Our line-up of pantry staples meets both of my requirements. I like knowing that when I use Pacific products I never need to sacrifice flavor for carefully sourced, pure ingredients prepared by a team who knows how to maximize the nourishment in each recipe.”
