LOWELL, Mass. April 22, 2018

Plenus Group Inc. (PGI), a Lowell, MA based manufacturer of premium soups, sauces and value-added frozen foods, has been recognized as the 2017 Supplier of the Year by Whole Foods Market’s Northeast Region.

PGI’s close partnership with the Northeast Region’s prepared foods team has led to the development of over 40 varieties of soups for their hot bars and more than 60 authentic sauces from cuisines across the globe—from Peru to Jamaica, Korea to Mexico, Thailand to Germany, and beyond. The development of these recipes called on PGI’s considerable culinary and manufacturing skills, and their ability to source quality, hard-to-find ingredients. The Whole Foods Market Northeast region includes over 40 stores in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

“Winning the inaugural Northeast Region Supplier of the Year award is hugely meaningful to all of us at PGI,” said PGI CEO Joe Jolly. “Our success is proof of Whole Food Market’s commitment to working with local, artisanal producers. We are fortunate to work with such a terrific partner who pushes us to the boundaries of food innovation. Their passion for quality and innovation matches ours and we look forward to extending our partnership to other Whole Foods regions.”

Whole Foods Market’s Supplier Awards spotlight producers who represent Whole Foods’ mission and core values. The award was one of 27 given out at a reception in Austin, TX on Wednesday, April 18th.
