TreeHouse Foods, the specialty food company spun off from Dean Foods earlier this year, has announced that Joe Coning will become president of its Bay Valley Foods unit, effective 29 August.

Coning replaces the long time president of Green Bay, Wisconsin-based Bay Valley Foods, Jim Greisinger, who was elected by the TreeHouse board of directors as a senior vice president of TreeHouse.  In his new position Greisinger will focus primarily on acquisitions.

Most recently, Coning was with Kellogg as vice president of contract packing and custom sales and prior to that he was president of Kellogg's Bake Line Products business unit. Before joining Kellogg he was president of Mondo Baking, a Georgia-based snack food manufacturer.
