Kahiki Foods, Inc., a leading provider of natural frozen Asian meals and appetizers, today announces Martin Kelly as its new President.
Kelly brings over 30 years of experience in the food and beverage industry to his new role at the helm of Kahiki Foods, Inc. In addition to his work with global multi-billion dollar brands such as Coca-Cola and Miller Beer, Kelly has held the top executive position for several specialty food and beverage companies, including Magic Hat Brewing Company and Boylan Bottling Company.
Kelly's proven track record in the development and implementation of strategies that drive profitable growth, combined with his ability to elevate brands to category leadership, will be instrumental for Kahiki. This overall approach and vision for the brand will be implemented as Kahiki works with retailers to capitalize on the tremendous untapped opportunity that currently exists in the frozen Asian Food category.
This fall, Kelly plans to lead Kahiki in the expansion of the brand's recent StirFresh line, announce a major consumer giveaway and release two new products at the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Show in October of this year.
"I was drawn to Kahiki because I see the potential for the company to be something really special," said Martin Kelly. "We are focused on exciting and delighting our consumers by leveraging our entrepreneurial spirit to be fast, flexible and nimble in product development, our customer relationships and our approach to manufacturing. This is an exceptional time for Kahiki, and I'm honored to be a part of it."
Kahiki has made pivotal improvements in 2014 to better position itself for continued growth in the frozen Asian food category, including a major rebrand of its online presence and company website Kahiki.com, and updated branding and packaging of all its products. The brand also launched its new StirFresh line, consisting of meals for two that can be prepared in a skillet or wok in 12 minutes and come in five flavors with customizable sauce options.
Kahiki Foods, Inc. will continue to launch new products this fall, which will premier at the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Show October 11, 2014.
