Principal, VP Sales & Marketing

Pat Griffin

Patrick Griffin has been involved in the food and beverage industries for over 40 years. From the late 70s to early 90s he was the co-owner and operator of two family run supermarkets in Turners Falls and Townsend, Massachusetts where he was responsible for day to day operations.

For the next five years, he owned and operated a beverage distributorship in central and western Massachusetts. After selling his distributorship back to the company in 1996, he was part of the senior management team for one of the largest independent soft drink companies in the country, responsible for as many as 400 employees while running its largest distribution center, until his departure in 2006.

Since 2007 Patrick has been an owner and integral partner in developing Fore Green Solutions into the company it is today. Starting with the development of equipment to handle organic waste, the company has expanded its innovative food service equipment offerings to include Henny Penny, Goslyn, JAC Machines, Jaccard, and several others.

His experience has helped him to better serve his customers. In recent years, Patrick has developed a line of “green,” environmentally-safe products for use in commercial kitchens and food processing plants, including ABS Formula 77, BLC Formula 55, and Freshen Up Plus. Use of these innovative products have helped major supermarkets, restaurant chains, and others save thousands of dollars in labor, energy, maintenance, and supply costs.
