Benjamin Tabatchnick, 62, of Randolph died Nov. 16, 2014.
Mr. Tabatchnick’s career began in the delicatessen business and then evolved into the Tabatchnick frozen soup business, which was founded by his late father Seymour in 1972.
He bought out his partners in the 1990s to become the sole owner of Tabatchnick Fine Foods, which he used as a launching pad for other ideas. He developed ready-to-use therapeutic foods and products that fight malnutrition worldwide; his Nutty Butta is credited with saving lives in Third World countries. He also supported soup kitchens in needy areas.
He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Rita; two sons, Jason and Alex; and his twin daughters, Anna and Ruthie, all of Randolph.
Services were held Nov. 18 with arrangements by Menorah Chapels at Millburn, Union.
