The Star Group, which supplies fresh fruit and vegetables from around the globe to retail and foodservice customers and includes the companies Star Produce, Nova Produce, Consolidated Fruit Packers, BC Hot House Foods, Sliced FC and Patterson Farms, announced two management promotions.

Jarrett Little has been promoted to senior vice president of sales, and Greg Kennedy was promoted from director of portfolio sales to president of Sliced FC.
