Kari-Out Names Two Industry Executives To VP Positions


Tarrytown, New York-based Kari-Out, a manufacturer, importer and distributor of take-out paper, aluminum and plastic food containers, sauces and towelettes, has announced the addition of two executives in supply chain, sales and manufacturing division.

“Following on the heels of Kari-Out’s acquisition of Paper Bags USA, expansion in specialty quality packaging and increased take-out sauce package production, two new leaders have joined the Kari-Out team with extensive sales, manufacturing and supply chain management experience,” said Paul Epstein, president and CEO.

“Our new talent will help increase Kari-Out’s national sales efforts, manufacturing and supply chain excellence as leaders in American made ‘away-from home’ and ‘food on the move’ industry.”

Dave Fredrickson has joined the executive team as VP of sales, with more than 15 years of sales leadership at companies, such as SOLO Cup, Convermex and Huhtamaki. Fredrickson’s experience, track record for success and industry knowledge will enhance Kari-Out’s strategic sales leadership and support long-term growth.

Mitch Kahn joins Kari-Out as VP of manufacturing and supply chain management. He held prior roles at companies such as The Hain Celestial Group, Tribe Mediterranean Foods and Kraft,  providing Kari-Out with his experience in operations, distribution and supply chain management. He will focus on enhancing service to a national customer base through development and implementation of manufacturing and logistics across multiple manufacturing and distribution facilities.

“I am delighted to welcome these new leaders to the Kari-Out team as we continue to build for the future. Like any successful company, finding the best talent for our organization – the best fit for our organization – is a top priority,” Epstein said.

“It’s equally important that we take care of our team members at every level, fostering a safe, secure and desirable work environment and providing opportunities that help us retain the best people. The high caliber of these new team members is evidence that Kari-Out’s approach is working, and will help us to accelerate growth, product innovation and new partner relationships.”

Founded in 1964, Kari-Out is a family-owned company with more than 55 years of diversified manufacturing experience in to-go food packaging in the U.S. The company employs more than 650 people and has six facilities throughout North America, supplying independent and national food service distributors.
