Evans manufactures branded and private label pork rind snacks.

Evans Food Group ("Evans"), headquartered in Chicago, IL, produces branded and private-label pork rind snacks. Evans manufactures under its own national brand (Mac’s) and regional brands sold at retail and co-packs finished product for various CPGs.  It also sells pork rind pellets, the intermediate raw material in pork rind manufacturing, to finished goods manufacturers predominantly in Latin America.

Our value creation plan includes growing the core packaged goods business through better use of existing and new flavors, optimizing pricing and packaging, and increasing the selling focus of the cracklins product line. Additionally, Wind Point plans to grow the international business, launch new products, execute productivity initiatives and complete strategic add-on acquisitions.

Evans is led by CEO and Chairman José Luis Prado, who has over 30 years of experience in consumer packaged goods. Jose Luis most recently served as President of Quaker Oats North America, a $2.7 billion division of PepsiCo.
