DENNIS MULLEN APPOINTED PRESIDENT OF COMSTOCK MICHIGAN FRUIT

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Curtice Burns Foods (AMEX: CBI) today announced the promotion of Dennis M. Mullen to president of its Rochester-based Comstock Michigan Fruit Division. Mullen moves up to the presidency from his post as senior vice president and business unit manager for foodservice. He will assume the position on March 8, 1993, when the current president, J. William Petty, becomes president and CEO of Curtice Burns Foods. Petty replaces David J. McDonald who will be retiring on his 65th birthday.
 Promoted to senior vice president and business unit manager for foodservice is Frederick A. Foster, a 39-year veteran of the company, whose current title is senior vice president-sales, for the foodservice business unit.
 Mullen had been president and CEO of Globe Products Company when Curtice Burns acquired Globe, and he joined the company in 1990. His first Curtice Burns assignment was as senior vice president of custom pack sales for its Nalley's Fine Foods division in Tacoma, Wash. He took on his current duties in 1991 when he moved to Comstock Michigan Fruit. His food background includes branded product manager assignments with Butoni Foods and a series of increasingly more responsible foodservice sales positions with the Nestle Company.
 Mullen and his wife, Cathy, reside in Brighton, N.Y. They have two children, Sean, 8, and Shannon, 5.
 Foster began his CMF career as a traffic clerk in 1953 with the original Michigan Fruit Canners, in Fennville, Mich. Michigan Fruit Canners (MFC) was acquired by Curtice Burns in December of 1973 and then merged with Comstock Foods in 1988 to become Comstock Michigan Fruit.
 Over the years, Foster moved up in the organization to positions of higher responsibility including sales manager, and later vice president for foodservice/retail private label sales. He moved to Rochester in 1989 when he assumed his current title. Foster and his wife Dolores live in Penfield, N.Y. and have three grown children.
