Landcrafted Food, a supplier of meat snacks made from 100% grass fed cattle raised exclusively on family farms in and around Grayson County, VA, announced today that Greg Jaeger has been named director of sales.
Jaeger will be responsible for growing the company’s distribution and retail network beyond its mid-Atlantic base. He will also help lead new product development as Landcrafted expands beyond meat sticks into related protein categories.
“We are excited to have Greg join the Landcrafted Food family,” says Gary Mitchell, managing partner and farmer. “Landrafted is about healthy, gluten- and GMO-free meat snack alternatives for the consumer. But that’s only part of our mission. We also stand for sustainable cattle farming and natural, small-scale food production that supports our community of farmers here in Viriginia -- and across the country as we grow. Greg’s experience and values are a perfect fit for Landcrafted as we accelerate our growth.”
Jaeger brings almost four decades of food industry experience to his new role. Starting at General Mills in 1979, he held sales leadership positions of inc9reasing levels of responsibility at the company, most recently as senior sales manager of their CPG convenience store channel.
“Landcrafted Food is obviously much smaller than my former employer, but their vision couldn’t be bigger,” says Jaeger. “I’m proud to be a part of a company that combines a great product with a powerful sense of purpose.”
