Quantum Foods announced that Edward Bleka, President, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, received the International Food Service Executives Association (IFSEA) 2009 Industry “Award of Excellence.” The award was presented April 3 at the 108th IFSEA Annual Conference held at the Hilton Hotel in Atlanta, Ga.
The IFSEA “Award of Excellence” was presented to Bleka for his innovative contributions to the food industry and for creating one of the fastest growing food processors in the nation.

Bleka founded Quantum Foods in 1990. Today, Quantum Foods provides custom-menu solutions for national and regional chains, including full-service and quick service restaurants. The Company is also an important co-packer to the nation’s largest retailers and serves the rapidly expanding food service needs of major cruise lines. Quantum Foods provides its high quality products to many recognized food companies and since 1994, it has been providing nutritious and convenient meals to the United States Military.
Quantum Foods’ employees work in two production plants and one distribution center on the Bolingbrook, Ill. campus. For all of this success, Bleka remains focused on his customers and on his employees as he treats everyone like family. His keen vision for adding value continues to drive Quantum Foods today.
