Organic meat firm adds seasoned sales execs to expand business nationally
REUNION Foods, an Irvington NY-based wellness protein company that provides 100% grass-fed organic beef and lamb, and organic pork to retail, foodservice, e-commerce and manufacturing customers, has hired two food industry veterans, Michael Wilson and Edward Orr to lead its national expansion.
REUNION recently launched several lines of wellness proteins, including organic, non-GMO, grass-fed and better-for-you beef, lamb and pork. The company’s founders spent more than five years building networks of farmers and partners who share its founders’ passions to improve human health, animal welfare and the environment. REUNION’s programs reflect a deep company commitment to meet the heightened standards and transparency that so many consumers value in today’s marketplace.
The company was founded in 2016 by siblings Seth Mosner, the firm’s CEO, Jessica Mosner, its Chief Marketing Officer and Ben Mosner, Chief Business Development Officer. The Mosner’s have an extensive lineage in the food industry. Their grandfather founded, what is today Mosner Family Brands, one of the northeast’s most prominent meat supply companies.
Veteran industry executive Michael Wilson has been hired as REUNION’s new Vice President of Sales. He is a 37-year food industry veteran who has spent his career promoting better-for-you proteins. He has held Vice President of Sales positions with Shenandoah Valley Organic, Beyond Meat, a leading plant-based meat company, and Coleman Natural Foods, where he helped establish the national market for chicken raised without antibiotics (RWA).
Also joining the REUNION team is Edward Orr, in the role of Director of Business Development. Mr. Orr has more than 40 years of industry experience, including sales management positions with Coleman Natural Foods and Tyson Fresh Meats. Most recently, he was the Protein Category Manager of Albert’s Organics, the nation’s leading distributor of quality organically grown fresh produce and perishable foods.
REUNION recently announced the location of its new headquarters at a waterfront complex on the Hudson River in the Village of Irvington-on-Hudson, NY. The location is just 16 miles north of New York City and overlooks the Manhattan Skyline and the newly-constructed Mario Cuomo Bridge.
“REUNION is a modern lifestyle brand born out of our passion for healthy living and environmentally responsible eating, with a specific focus on 100% grass-fed and organic beef and lamb, and organic pork. Our brand was created for the conscious carnivore, who believes in choosing healthy meat products from livestock that are raised by family farms with care and free of GMOs, antibiotics and added hormones,” said Seth Mosner, CEO of REUNION.
He continued, “The REUNION Foods team is delighted to be joined by Mike and Ed, two proven industry professionals who share our company’s values and have both distinguished themselves as veterans of organic protein markets. As more consumers, especially Millennials, demand organic 100% grass-fed proteins and seek a sense of connection to the people, land and livestock that make a meal, we see tremendous growth and market penetration ahead for REUNION.”
