Wenner, President and Chief Executive Officer of B&G Foods. “Michael has been a very strong addition to B&G Foods’ management team and has played an important role in the integration of Rickland Orchards into the B&G Foods family. His experience in all aspects of managing snack brands will greatly benefit our company.”

B&G Foods also announced that at month end Jason Cohen will transition from Executive Vice President of Club Channel to become an outside strategic advisor to B&G Foods. In this capacity, Mr. Cohen will continue to assist B&G Foods with the implementation of its sales strategy across its entire portfolio of brands.
