Stir Foods

Stir Foods is a leading manufacturer of custom soups, sauces, dressings, and fresh salsas.

Stir Foods, headquartered in Orange County, California, is a custom manufacturer of soups, sauces, dressings, fresh salsas, and muffin batters for both retail and foodservice customers. Stir Foods was formed via the simultaneous acquisition of Stir Foods and Pacifica Foods in December of 2017. The combination of these businesses formed a platform better equipped to service existing customers through a more diverse set of product and packaging offerings (sizes and formats), additional capacity for growth, and greater culinary expertise and resources.

Wind Point acquired Stir in partnership with CEO Milt Liu. Milt worked closely with the Wind Point team during due diligence and played a key role in developing our value creation plan, which includes continuing to win with core customers, adding new customers and new channels, enhancing margins through productivity improvements, and completing accretive add-on acquisitions.

Milt is a proven leader in the foodservice industry, having most recently served as President and COO of Flying Food Group, a $500 million food manufacturing business that produces custom prepared meals for both the premium airline catering market and large foodservice customers. Prior to Flying Food Group, Milt held various senior level roles within Target Corporation’s grocery business, including VP Food Operations.
