 Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce Bestows Company with ‘Faith in Paterson’ Award

Paterson, N.J. – Jan. 25, 2018 – Kontos Foods, manufacturer of ethnic artisan breads and traditional Mediterranean foods, its owner and vice president, Steve Kontos, and the company’s controller and chief financial officer, Nancy Kontos, are being honored with the “Faith in Paterson,” award by the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce this January 27. The award will be bestowed at the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce 109th Annual Gala, to be held at Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J.

The “Faith in Paterson” honor goes to a business, organization or individual in recognition for their “contributions to economic development, job creation and the betterment of quality of life in the Paterson area,” according to the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber selected Kontos Foods because of its commitment to Paterson throughout many stages of its economic growth. Late last year Kontos announced plans for a major expansion to its manufacturing facility, which will take place over the next several years. “Some 90 percent of Kontos’ employees are residents of the Paterson community,” said Jamie Dykes, president of the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce. “This shows you just how much Kontos supports the area and cares for this community.”
