Pacifica and Stir Foods

Pacifica and Stir Foods is a leading manufacturer of custom soups, sauces, dressings, and fresh salsas.

Pacifica and Stir Foods, headquartered in Orange County, California, are custom manufacturers of soups, sauces, dressings, fresh salsas, and muffin batters for both retail and foodservice customers. The acquisition of these businesses will allow both companies to better service existing customers through a more diverse set of product and packaging offerings (sizes and formats), additional capacity for growth, and greater culinary expertise and resources.

Wind Point acquired Pacifica and Stir in December 2017, in partnership with CEO Milt Liu. Milt worked closely with the Wind Point team during due diligence on Pacifica and Stir and played a key role in developing our value creation plan, which includes continuing to win with core customers, adding new customers and new channels, enhancing margins through productivity improvements, and completing accretive add-on acquisitions.

Milt is a proven leader in the foodservice industry, having most recently served as President and COO of Flying Food Group, a $500 million food manufacturing business that produces custom prepared meals for both the premium airline catering market and large foodservice customers. Prior to Flying Food Group, Milt held various senior level roles within Target Corporation’s grocery business, including VP Food Operations.
