Chief JUNKLESS Officer
After working in food product creation and marketing for 20 years, Ernie Pang decided to bring a new concept to consumers. In 2011, he founded Simply Eight with a philosophy of providing minimally processed packaged foods for consumers who want simplicity and familiar kitchen pantry ingredients. With his team, he created four new products under the JUNKLESS® brand.
Prior to Simply Eight, Ernie was a marketing executive at several consumer packaged goods companies, where he helped commercialize and test new products in the marketplace. Those organizations include two notable food giants – the Kellogg Company and the Slim-Fast Foods Company.
He earned a Master of Business Administration from York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His Bachelor of Arts is from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. When he’s not creating simple food products, he’s an active player in ice hockey leagues, skiing and music.
