Ocean Mist Farms Welcomes Reggie Griffin to its Board of Directors



CASTROVILLE, CA - Reggie Griffin, industry maven and former Vice President of Produce and Floral at The Kroger Co., is joining the Ocean Mist Farms Board of Directors.

“I am honored to join the Ocean Mist Farms board,” said Griffin. “I’ve worked with the company for several years and have long respected the professional culture and quality of excellence that Ocean Mist Farms delivers. I look forward to moving into a productive future together.”

Bringing more than 40 years of experience to Ocean Mist, Griffin’s wealth of wisdom and industry prowess will no doubt be of great value. In 2011, Griffin retired from The Kroger Co., after having overseen more than $7.0 billion in produce and floral sales for the grocery chain. He has since started a new consulting venture: Reggie Griffin Strategies.

Ed Boutonnet, CEO, Ocean Mist Farms“We are extremely excited about Mr. Griffin’s recent election to the board and look forward to benefitting from his knowledge and expertise in the produce industry,” said Ed Boutonnet, Ocean Mist CEO. “His insight and passion for the business will help guide and direct the future growth of Ocean Mist Farms.”

Griffin is the second outside director to join Ocean Mist Farms’ board, according to a press release. Dr. Roberta Cook of UC Davis was the first.
