Maple Leaf Foods has named a new president for Greenleaf Foods, its plant-based protein subsidiary.

Adam Grogan, Greenleaf’s chief operating officer, will take the top spot effective at the end of January. He will replace Dan Curtin, Greenleaf’s original president, who will retire after four decades in the food industry.

Grogan has nearly 20 years with Maple Leaf, serving as senior vice president of marketing, innovation, research and development before becoming Greenleaf’s COO in August 2019.

Curtin was a key player in the formation of the Greenleaf unit, playing a major role in the acquisition of the Field Roast business, which was merged with Maple Leaf’s existing Lightlife business to form Greenleaf. He also oversaw the recent construction of its new tempeh facility in Indianapolis.

"Dan is a strong leader who has been instrumental in building our Greenleaf business, and we are deeply grateful for his contributions,” CEO Michael McCain said in a statement. “As Dan hands the reins to Adam, we are confident that Adam's experience, passion for excellence and commitment to delivering winning results, make him extremely well suited to lead Greenleaf into the future."
