Laura Virginillo, CEO
"Do what moves you."
A lifelong entrepreneur, event planner and marketing facilitator, Laura's passion has always been centered in people. And people centered around food.
Born on the east coast of Canada (Summerside, PEI) but soon moved with her parents and siblings to Vancouver where she has lived and raised her own family.
Laura has presented at high level fundraising events as keynote speaker, planned televised orchestral productions, delivered management development seminars and programs and a long list of corporate functions.
As Project Manager for two financial institutions in BC and auction Chairperson , Laura further developed skills that fostered the initiative to open Modern General and develop the business into specialty food manufacturing for the wholesale specialty foods sector.
In 2021, Laura moved to Ontario and re-established the business operations.
Modern General Food Group, based in Ottawa Ontario, provides top quality condiments, crostini, savory jellies and cocktail products for domestic and international wholesale specialty food and beverage industry.

Scaling up our business has been a natural progression from the storefront in BC where we developed recipes and honed our creative talents. Curating this lineup of food and beverage items for the specialty food market allows us to share them with a wider audience across Canada and exporting to the USA. Always developing new flavors and offerings, we welcome your questions and feedback!
