Our Story

Food and Beverage Processing is in our DNA. Growing up around his beloved Grandfather and Father, Ed Pintwala witnessed them scale from a food processor and distributor to a multi-site, vertically integrated national supplier. This left a big impact and cultivated his natural love for the industry and the people who make it all work. Now with over 15 years of Recruiting and partnering with hundreds of Food and CPG Employers, successfully placing thousands of Professionals through CPG Executive Search with a 96% placement rate. Finding Esme Guevara was the beginning of the fulfilment of the vision called QTalent.
