Leading independent fresh foods distributor

FreshEdge (the “Company”) is a leading distributor of fresh foods. The Company distributes a broad assortment of fresh produce and specialty foods, including fresh cut or value-add solutions, to both foodservice and retail customers throughout the Midwest and Southeast. FreshEdge currently operates 800,000 square feet of warehouse space and a fleet of approximately 830 trucks.

Wind Point acquired FreshEdge in October 2022 with goals of providing capital and strategic support for FreshEdge to accelerate organic growth through investments in fresh cut processing capabilities, expanded warehouse space and enhanced infrastructure, as well as pursue strategic acquisitions to enhance density in the Midwest and Southeast and expand the Company’s geographic footprint. 

Wind Point partnered with existing FreshEdge management, led by CEO Steve Grinstead and COO Greg Corsaro, as well as an experienced team of senior leaders whom collectively average nearly 30 years of experience in fresh produce distribution. 

Wind Point complemented FreshEdge’s leadership team with two advisors from the firm’s Executive Advisor Partner (“EAP”) program. EAPs Pat Larmon and Randall Boyd have joined the Company’s Board of Directors, with Mr. Larmon serving as Lead Independent Director and Chair. Mr. Larmon and Mr. Boyd bring more than 50 years of collective experience in creating value in C-Suite and Board-level roles across Bunzl Distribution, LSG Skychefs, Guckenheimer Services, and Wind Point portfolio companies Handgards and Pestell Nutrition.
