Northern Wind, a leading direct off-loader, processor, and distributor of fresh and frozen scallops based in New Bedford, Massachusetts, U.S.A., has hired Adam Taylor on to the position of vice president of retail sales.
Taylor formerly served as vice president of sales at Trident Seafoods, where he spent nine years, and he brings 15 years total experience in the seafood industry to Northern Wind.
"Adam has deep roots and a sterling track record in the seafood industry," Northern Wind CEO George Kouri said in a press release. "We will look to Adam's leadership and experience as we drive for continued growth of our Bon Cuisine value-added product line in U.S."
Taylor’s roll will be to introduce Northern Wind’s “Bon Cuisine” line of seafood products to retailers, according to the release.
”His responsibilities will encompass sales team leadership, accelerating Northern Wind’s revenue through expanding Bon Cuisine’s retail footprint and contributing to the company’s marketing and sales strategies,” Northern Wind said in the release.
The new Bon Cuisine line is 16 items that will be available nationwide for chain and independent supermarkets, gourmet food stores, club stores, and foodservice operators, according to Northern Wind.
The company also recently completed the construction of its new, 38,000-square-foot facility in New Bedford. The new facility features a 21,600-square-foot holding freezer with a 5.5-million-pound capacity, and a new high-efficiency processing line capable of processing 12,000 scallops per hour.
Northern Wind will be showcasing the new Bon Cuisine line of seafood at the upcoming Seafood Expo North America show in Boston, Massachusetts, running from March 15 to 17, at Booth #1405.
