Our Founder and President

Matthew de Bord

Matthew de Bord is NewGem Foods' Founder and President. Matthew handles all new product development and strategy for NewGem Foods. Prior to founding NewGem Foods in 2003, Matthew lived in Japan. While in Japan, Matthew had a strong desire to have Japan's fresh, delicious, healthy convience food items when he planned to return home.  This desire has driven his entrepreneurial motivation to start and grow NewGem Foods into the company you see today.  None of this would have been possible without the cooperation and support of Dr. Tara McHugh and the USDA's Agricultural Research Service.
