Thomas McQuillan, Director of Food Service Sales and Sustainability, Baldor Foods, New York

Thomas McQuillan

Thomas McQuillan is a director of food sales and sustainability for Baldor Specialty Foods, and has led the company’s efforts to become more sustainable while also cutting costs. Mr. McQuillan has introduced several initiatives to use the 10,000 pounds of food scraps created by the company every day. Prior to Mr. McQuillan joining Baldor, food waste was picked up by its waste hauler, but today they use these scraps to generate income, unlock valuable nutrients, compost organic waste and feed the hungry. Food Tank had the opportunity to speak with Mr. McQuillan about the company’s efforts to divert food scraps from landfill and ensure that the hard work of farmers, producers and processors does not go to waste.
