Baby Gourmet names new CEO

Co-founder Jennifer Carlson will lead the company's expansion across Canada and the U.S.

Baby Gourmet's board of directors has appointed company co-founder Jennifer Carlson to the role of chief executive officer.

Carlson, who founded the organic baby food company with her sister Jill Vos in 2005, will focus on growing the Calgary-based company's Baby Gourmet and Slammers brands across Canada and the U.S.

"I’m beyond excited to take on this new role at such a pivotal time to ensure the original vision for Baby Gourmet is never lost,” said Carlson, in a press release. "Since the inception of Baby Gourmet, I’ve felt a great responsibility to take on the important role, maybe one of the most important jobs, of feeding babies."

Vos, meanwhile, will continue her role as head of innovation and quality.

“Jill and I take great pride in the products we’ve created,” said Carlson. “We will continue to develop new and innovative products that help make life easier for parents by providing foods they can feel good about feeding their families.”
