A History of Innovation


Since its founding over 45 years ago, Ready Pac has strived to be the most innovative supplier in the fresh-cut foods industry.  Whether it’s our new and exciting products, packaging, or processing techniques, Ready Pac has led the way.  Some examples of ReadyPac innovation over the years include:

  • First to bring the concept of European Salad Blends to the U.S.
  • Created the “pillow pack” for bagged salads
  • Introduced unique, proprietary “crisp” packaging for bag salads which allows for superior visual  graphics
  • Invented the triple wash system, which is the industry standard for bagged salad todayundefined
  • Developed one of the single best-selling salads in the U.S. today – Ready Pac’s The Grand Parisian® Complete Salad Kit
  • Developed the first single serve protein-added salad
  • Launched exclusive packaging designs for easy merchandising, such as Ready Pac Bistro® bowl salads with a “foot” or our Ready Snax® shipped in a recyclable display case
  • Led the way in sustainable packaging and processing.  Many of our packages are made from recycled plastics, are recyclable or compostable, and the bowls for our Ready Pac Bistro® Bowl Salads are manufactured in plants run by more than 50% solar powerundefined

We are committed to continuing to lead the way in innovation for years to come, by consistently developing new, great-tasting, convenient products and improving upon production methods to meet the needs of our customers and consumers.

    I have been working at Ready Pac full-time (More than a year)


    I really enjoy working at Ready Pac - as they have a totally new leadership team - run by Tony S. He does a great job informing of all company information and connecting with all employees!


    Ready Pac's fast pace and growth is not for everyone. This company is changing quickly and may not keep lower performing employees around. I have already seen several people leave - and it will make the company much better.

    Advice to Management

    Tony - please keep driving the engagement with all levels of the company. We are behind you and appreciate the transparency that you bring to Ready Pac

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Ready Pac.


    I am reporting my experience and the concerns that I had about the company committing to schedule me for the next steps in the interview process but then never following up or getting back to me. My impression is that my initial meeting/interview with the Chief HR Officer went really well and there seemed to be interest on both sides. During that session, he shared that he would follow-up on scheduling the next step to meet with other members of the leadership team. I followed-up with him directly (per his request) and with other members of the HR team yet there was absolute silence from the company. There was no follow-up or updates as to the recruitment progress and not even any closure that could be shared in the event that I was no longer being considered as a candidate. To go from seeming interest during one interview to zero communication seems very odd and inappropriate as it generates a negative candidate experience which is even more unfortunate when this negative experience is for a potential HR candidate. You would think that would be the type of candidate you'd least likely give a negative candidate experience to.
