Unsatisfied by traditional approaches to food & beverage product innovation, Jeff Grogg founded JPG Resources by fusing breakthrough vision and grounded functional know-how to deliver impactful business results for emerging brands and global CPGs. Since 2009, the JPG team has grown to over 50 industry diehards from a broad range of disciplines and built a sound reputation by bringing thousands of new SKUs to market.
Each day, we work side by side with our clients to bring ideas to life, create delightful food, and build thriving businesses.
With years under our belt at the world’s leading food & beverage operations, we’ve lived best-practice. We know the journey and our contributions aren’t isolated; they’re fuel for a greater objective. And, like the entrepreneurs and business leaders we work beside, our team knows the only solution is finding a solution. It’s not only if it can be done—but how.
Our downtown Battle Creek innovation hub is 12,000 square-feet of food labs, test areas, guest kitchens, collaboration space—and maybe a keg or two of great Michigan beer. The perfect environment to build better food.
We are in the trenches every day, tackling and solving problems on behalf of our clients, but we're not satisfied to sit on the sidelines and tell. Where we see opportunities, we act. We partner, we invest, and we found new ways to build a better food industry.
Our culture is committed to elevating “food” in a broad way. We partner with local high school career programs, stand beside community aid organizations, and support international nutrition and crowdfunding initiatives — all while helping founders from every walk of life start and build thriving food businesses.
