WINSTON SALEM, NC -- MG Foods Inc., a custom, private-label manufacturer of grab-and-go foods based here, has hired Terry Touchton as vice-president of marketing and sales. In his new post, the marketing veteran will develop sales and marketing strategies expand the company's reach into new markets and geographies.

Touchton joins MG Foods after spending the past 21 years with nationwide vendible product distributor Vistar where he served as vice-president of sales and marketing for the past eight years. Prior to that, Touchton spent six years with Coca-Cola and Mars Chocolate.

MG Foods makes private-label sandwiches, salads, wraps and desserts under its customers' private labels and custom packs them by order. "All of that is designed to enhance our customers image with their clients by providing delicious, safe and reliable food while reducing their labor and effort associated with producing it themselves," Touchton commented.  

MG Foods' corporate office is in Winston Salem, NC, and it has a manufacturing facility in Charlotte NC. It opened a second production facility in Longview, TX, three years ago and will add a third production facility in Melbourne, FL, this fall.

"For the past few years, we have taken a measured approach to growth and have expanded opportunistically," said MG Foods president and owner John Fourqurean.  "Adding an experienced sales and marketing executive to our ownership team was key to maximizing the capacity and capabilities we have, which will take MG Foods to the next level."
