Kurt Richars

Director of Market Development
Anchor Packaging

As the Director of Market Development and Sustainability for Anchor Packaging, Kurt works to identify emerging consumer needs and develop solutions to help operators profitably grow by serving them. As meals travel further from the restaurant kitchen, this means focusing on maintaining fresh-made quality longer to protect and build the brand, exceed consumer expectations, and limit food waste. Because packaging plays an important role in helping foodservice operate sustainably, Kurt’s focus includes leading initiatives to reduce the impact of food and packaging waste before and after the meal.
Anchor Packaging is one of North America’s largest thermoformers and is best known for its award-winning product designs and custom package capabilities. Kurt’s experience before Anchor includes over 20 years in business development for leading consumer package goods and wholesale brands.
