Terrulli brings a rare combination of a wealth of product and market knowledge along with an understanding of what the customer needs. His produce career began working alongside his father, Lou Terrulli Sr., in the Hunts Point Terminal Market for 14 years where he learned this business from the ground up, beginning with unloading trucks and ending up at the sales desk.  

For the last 19 year's, Terrulli has served as a director of purchasing at Baldor Foods in the Bronx, NY, joining Kevin Murphy early in Baldor's history. 

“I’m proud of my time with Baldor and to have been a part of its growth in becoming a foodservice icon," said Terrulli. "Moreover, it was both my honor, privilege and pleasure to work with its founder Kevin Murphy, his son TJ Murphy, owner and CEO, and Michael Muzyk, president of Baldor Foods, and I look forward to watching Ark Foods maintain and grow its current mutually beneficial relationship with Baldor.

"I’m excited to join the Ark Foods team and look forward to applying my experience and knowledge of this great industry to help grow the Ark Foods brand," said Terrulli.

"Lou has the perfect combination of integrity and character, along with a wealth of experience in supply chain management, product development, inventory management and mentoring," said Noah Robbins, chief executive officer of Ark Foods. "We are thrilled at Lou's joining our team, and helping us manage, maintain and enhance our growth while maintaining our demanding standards of quality."
