Mom Made Foods’ Heather Stouffer Honored as Industry Leader with Top Women in Grocery Award


ALEXANDRIA, VA (June 10, 2016) Mom Made Foods, a leading producer of family-favorite frozen meals and snacks, is proud to announce that Chief Executive Officer and Founder Heather Stouffer has been named one of Progressive Grocer’s Top Women in Grocery as a Senior-Level Executive. This honor is extended yearly to a select number of individuals nationwide, recognizing the outstanding contributions from female leaders in the retail food industry.


The 2016 Top Women in Grocery Award this year maintained the purpose upon which it was founded: to celebrate the critical roles the honorees serve in their companies, communities and the industry at large. Nominated for one of three categories, each candidate represents a different level within both the retailer and supplier communities. Named a top woman in grocery, Heather Stouffer of Mom Made Foods has once again distinguished herself as a force within the industry.


“I am honored to have been recognized for my commitment to the food industry. Progressive Grocer’s award is acknowledgement of Mom Made Foods as a leader in the category for convenient and nutritious meal options for today’s on-the-go families,” says Stouffer. “Being recognized among an exceptional slate of Top Women in Grocery is proof of the passion behind the Mom Made Foods brand.”


Stouffer has maintained her commitment to quality ingredients – despite erratic food prices – while keeping shoppers’ budgets in mind. She has been a pioneer in the movement towards nutritious, kid-friendly snacks and meals and has continued to evolve Mom Made Foods. Consumer demand for healthier and more natural ingredients is prompting a growing number of companies to overhaul the products they sell; a trend industry watchers say is just getting started. Led by Stouffer’s vision, Mom Made Foods’ products contain no artificial preservatives, trans fats, nor artificial colors and are significantly lower in sodium than their conventional counterparts. This transparency as well as the company’s ability to supply consumers’ demand for healthier-for-you foods has made Mom Made Foods indispensible in the market today.
