this 10th day of October, 1995 by and between GALAXY FOODS COMPANY, a 
Delaware corporation (the "Corporation"), and ANGELO S. MORINI (the

P R E M I S E S :

	The Executive has been employed by the Corporation for a number of years

of the services of the Executive for a substantial period of time.

	In order to accomplish the foregoing, the Corporation and the Executive 
are willing to enter into this Agreement providing for the continuation of

to the operation and business of the Corporation as the Board of Directors
of the Corporation (the "Board") may from time to time specify and the
Executive shall have such powers and duties as may from time to time be

the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation.

	3.      Term.  The term of this Agreement shall commence on the date

of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($250,000.00) per

after deducting applicable state and federal income taxes required to be
withheld, social security taxes and other employment and unemployment
taxes.

		(b)             Bonus.  To provide greater incentive for the Executive

hereunder in an amount equal to five percent (5%) of the Corporations pre
- -tax net income for book purposes, as determined by the Corporation's

are from time to time made available to the key management employees of the
Corporation, subject to and on a basis consistent with the terms,
conditions and overall administration of such plans and arrangements. 
Nothing paid to the Executive under any plan or arrangement presently in
effect or made available in the future shall be deemed to be in lieu of 
the Base Salary or bonuses payable to the Executive hereunder.

		(e)             Vacations.  The Executive shall be entitled to four
weeks of paid vacation annually and shall be entitled to holidays in

		(g)             Automobile.  The Corporation shall furnish to the

vehicle of comparable price) selected by him, which shall be replaced, at
his request, with a comparable automobile every two (2) years.

		(h)             Legal Expenses.  The Corporation shall pay the legal 
fees and expenses incurred by the Executive in connection with the
preparation of this Agreement.

	5.      Right and Options to Purchase Stock.

		(a)             Stock Purchase Right.  To induce the Executive to
enter into this Agreement, the Corporation has, contemporaneously with its 
approval of this Agreement, approved the Executive's purchase at any time
of 18,000,000 shares of the Corporation's $.01 per share par value common
stock ("Common Stock").  The Executive may exercise such right to purchase
all or any part of such shares (the "Rights") from time to time.  The
Rights shall be exercised from time to time by giving written notice of
exercise to the Corporation.  The price per share for any shares of Common
Stock purchased pursuant to exercise of the Rights shall be an amount equal
to one hundred and ten percent (110%) multiplied by the average of the
"market prices" for the Common Stock for the last ten (10) trading days
preceding the date of such written notice.  The "market price" for each
trading day is the closing bid price on the electronic dealer quotation 
system operated by Nasdaq, Inc. commonly known as the "NASDAQ System" or 
any national stock exchange on which the Common Stock is then listed.  The 
purchase price for the shares of Common Stock purchased by the Executive 
pursuant to the Rights shall be evidenced by a promissory note payable on
the same terms and secured in the same manner as provided for the Options
described in subparagraph (b) below.

		(b)             Stock Options.  In addition to the Rights, the
executive shall also have the option to purchase shares of Common Stock 
(the "Options") upon the Corporation's achieving each of the following
milestone events:

		Milestone Event                                                               

	Option Shares
	1)      Reaching break-even for a calendar quarter             1,000,000

	2)      Annual net operating income of $1 million or more      1,000,000

	3)      Each increment of $1 million of annual net
operating income in excess of $1 million                        1,000,000

	Each such option shall vest upon the occurrence of the milestone event.  
The Board shall determine whether and when any of the milestone events are 
achieved in the exercise of its reasonable discretion with assistance from
the Corporation's certified public accountants.  The Corporation's "net
operating income" for purposes of the Options shall be determined under
generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied.

	The purchase price for the shares under each exercise of the Options
shall be the market price for the Common Stock on the last trading day
preceding the date of the particular milestone event, i.e. the closing bid
price on such day on the electronic dealer quotation system operated by
Nasdaq, Inc. commonly known as the "NASDAQ System" or any national stock
exchange on which the Common Stock is then listed.


	Each of the Options shall have a term of five (5) years from the date
granted and shall be exercisable in whole or in part, by giving the
Corporation written notice of exercise.  Upon exercise of any of the
Options the notice of exercise shall be accompanied by the Executive's
executed promissory note in payment for such shares in a principal amount
equal to the purchase price and pledge agreement under which the shares
purchased are pledged to the Corporation to secure the Executive's
promissory note.  Such note shall bear interest at the "applicable federal
rate" on the date of exercise and shall be due in full five (5) years after
the date of the note.  The Executive may extend the term of the note for up
to five years at his sole option, provided that at the time of extension
the Executive pays at least one-third of the then accrued but unpaid
interest, with any remaining unpaid interest to be added to principal.

		(c)             Sufficient Shares.  At all times while any of the
Rights or the Options remain unexercised in whole or in part, the
Corporation shall have authorized and reserve for issuance pursuant to the
Rights and the Options a number of shares of Common Stock required to
fulfill the Corporation's obligations under this paragraph 5.

		(d)             Adjustment of Options.  The number of shares of
Common Stock which are subject to the Options shall be adjusted in the
event that at any time after the date of this Agreement the number of
outstanding shares of the Common Stock is increased or decreased or changed
into or exchanged for a different number or class or kind of shares or
securities of the Corporation, by reason of a merger, consolidation,
reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, stock dividend, stock
split, combination of shares, exchange of share, change in corporate
structure or the like.

	6.      Termination.

		(a)             Cause.  The Corporation may terminate the Executive's 
employment under this Agreement for cause.  For purposes of this Agreement,
the Corporation shall have "cause" to terminate the Executive's employment
hereunder upon (i) a willful, continuing material breach by the Executive
of any provision of this Agreement; (ii) the Executive's continuing refusal
to comply with reasonable policies adopted from time to time by the Board;
(iii) the Executive's continuing failure to carry out lawful duties from
time to time assigned to the Executive by the Board that are consistent
with the Executive's position as chief executive officer; (iv) the
Executive's total disability for a continuous period of six (6) months or 
more, (v) the Executive's being declared legally incompetent by a court of 
competent jurisdiction; or (vi) the conviction of the Executive of a
felony.  Prior to terminating the Executive's employment pursuant to clause
(i), (ii) or (iii) of this subparagraph (a), the Corporation shall give the
Executive written notice of the proposed termination of his employment in
which the basis for the alleged "cause" for termination is stated in
reasonable detail and the Executive shall have a full and fair opportunity
to be heard in person at a meeting of the Board.  For purposes of this
paragraph, no act, or failure to act, on the Executive's part shall be 
considered "willful" unless done, or admitted to be done, by the Executive
in bad faith and without reasonable belief that such action or omission was
in the best interest of the Corporation.  For the purposes hereof, the
Executive shall be deemed to be totally disabled if he is unable by reason
of illness or injury to perform after the injury or illness any of the
duties he performed for the Corporation prior to the illness or injury.

		(b)             Death.  The Executive's employment under this 
Agreement shall terminate automatically upon the death of the Executive.

		(c)             By the Executive.  The Executive may terminate his 
employment under this Agreement by giving the Corporation written notice of 
termination in the event that a change of control of the Corporation
occurs.  For the purposes hereof, a "change of control" of the Corporation
means that a majority of the Board is comprised of persons for whom the
Executive did not vote in his capacity as a director or a shareholder of
the Corporation; provided that if the Executive abstains from voting for
any person as a director, such abstention shall be deemed to be an
affirmative vote by the Executive for such person as a director.

		(d)             Effect of Termination.  Upon the effective date of any 
termination of the Executive's employment under this Agreement as provided
for in this paragraph 6, the Executive or his estate, as the case may be,
(i) shall be entitled to retain any and all of the Rights granted to the
Executive under subparagraph 5(a), (ii) shall be entitled to retain all
vested Options granted to the Executive under subparagraph 5(c), (iii)
shall be entitled to all unpaid Base Salary through the effective date of
termination and, (iv) shall be entitled to receive any accrued and unpaid
bonuses for the fiscal year(s) ending prior to the effective date of
termination.  

In the event the Executive's employment is terminated by the Corporation
without cause or terminates due to his death or total disability or because
he is declared legally incompetent or if the Executive terminates his
employment following a change of control of the Corporation, the
Corporation shall pay to the Executive or his estate, as applicable (a)
within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination, severance
pay in an amount equal to three (3) times the amount of the Executive's
Annual Base Salary (before deductions for withholding, employment and
unemployment taxes) immediately prior to the termination of his employment,
and (b) a bonus for the year of termination and the next two (2) years
thereafter which shall be equal to the average of the last two (2) annual
bonuses which were previously accrued for the Executive under this
Agreement.  Any severance pay and bonuses payable pursuant to clauses 
(a) and (b) above shall be reduced by all required withholding for
insurance and taxes.  Any such bonus shall be paid to the Executive or his
estate, as the case may be, at the time and in the manner as any such bonus
would otherwise be due and payable hereunder.  Finally, except where the
Executive's employment is terminated for a "cause" specified in clauses
(i), (ii), (iii) or (vi) of subparagraph 6(a) or by reason of his death or
voluntarily by Executive (except for voluntary termination following a
change in control of the Corporation), the Executive will also be entitled
to all of the benefits he would otherwise be entitled to under subparagraph
4(d) for a period of three (3) years after the date of termination.  
All of the provisions of this subparagraph (d) shall survive the
termination of this Agreement.

	7.      Change of Control - Put Right.  In the event that at any time a 
"change of control" (as defined in subparagraph 6 (c)) of the Corporation
occurs, the Executive may at any time thereafter require that the
Corporation purchase up to 1,638,564 shares of his common stock for a cash
purchase price of fifty cents ($.50) per share (the "Put).  The Put shall
be exercisable from time to time by the Executive's giving the 
Corporation written notice of exercise in the manner specified herein for
giving notices in which the Executive shall state the number of shares of
Common Stock as to which the Put is then exercised.  The number of shares
of Common Stock subject to the Put and the fifty cents ($.50) per share
purchase price shall be appropriately adjusted in the event that at any
time after the date of this Agreement the number of outstanding shares of
the Corporation's Common Stock is increased or decreased or changed into or
exchanged for a different number or class or kind of shares or securities
of the Corporation, by reason of a merger, consolidation, reorganization,
recapitalization, reclassification, stock dividend, stock split,
combination of shares, exchange of shares, change in corporate structure or
the like.  The Put is granted to the Executive in recognition of the fact
that on December 9, 1993, the Executive, at a considerable personal
economic sacrifice to himself, invested $819,282 in the Corporation for
1,638,564 shares of Common Stock in order to prevent the Corporation's
common stock from being delisted by NASDAQ, the Corporation at the time
having fallen below NASDAQ's equity requirements for listing.

	8.      Modification of Existing Note.  Pursuant to the exercise of a
prior option, the Executive purchased from the Corporation two million four
hundred thousand (2,400,000) shares of the Common Stock and delivered to
the Corporation his executed promissory note in the principal amount of one
million two hundred thousand dollars ($1,200,000) representing the 
purchase price (the "Option Note").  The Corporation and the Executive
agree that the term of the Option Note is hereby extended for an additional
two (2) years.  The provisions of this paragraph 8 shall survive any
termination of the Executive's employment with the Corporation and any
termination of this Agreement.

	9.      Noncompetition.

		(a)             During the term hereof, so long as the Executive
remains an employee of the Corporation, the Executive shall not be employed
in any capacity, whether directly or indirectly, by any person, firm,
corporation or entity engaged in a business which directly competes with
that of the Corporation.

		(b)             Further, the Executive agrees that if he voluntarily
terminates his employment relationship with the Corporation in breach of
this Agreement or his employment is terminated by the Corporation for
"cause" pursuant to subparagraph 6 a.(i), (ii), (iii) or (vi) hereof, then,
for a period of one (1) year following the date of termination of his
employment with the Corporation (the "Termination Date") (the
"Noncompetition Period"), he will not, for himself or on behalf of any
person, partnership, trust, corporation or other entity other than the 
Corporation for whatever reason:

			(1)     engage, directly or indirectly (either as an employee,
officer, director, partner, shareholder, consultant or independent
contractor), in any business substantially similar to that carried on by
the Corporation as of the Termination Date within those areas in the 
United States (the "Noncompetition Area") in which the Corporation is doing
business as of the Termination Date or in which, at the time of the
Termination Date, the Corporation contemplates doing business.  The
Executive further agrees that during the Noncompetition Period he will not 
be connected, directly or indirectly, with any person, firm or corporation
engaged in a business of the character now or hereafter carried on or
contemplated by the Corporation within the Noncompetition Area and that he
will not directly or indirectly be employed or become a partner, officer or
stockholder of any corporation engaged in such business within said
Noncompetition Area; or

			(2)     engage, directly or indirectly (either as an employee,
officer, director, partner, shareholder, consultant or independent
contractor), in providing services or products or offering to provide
products or services of the kind provided by the Corporation as of 
the Termination Date for those customers or the Corporation for whom the
Corporation:  (i) is engaged in providing services or products as of the
Termination Date, or (ii) has either provided services or products within
the six (6) month period prior to the Termination Date, or (iii) has 
personally contacted, as of the Termination Date, for the purpose of
offering to provide services or products;

		(c)             If in any judicial proceeding, a court shall refuse to
enforce this Agreement, whether because the time limit is too long or
because the restrictions contained herein are more extensive (whether as to
geographic area, scope of business or otherwise) than is necessary to
protect the business and goodwill of the Corporation, it is expressly
understood and agreed between the parties hereto that this Agreement is
deemed modified to the extent necessary to permit this Agreement to be
enforced in any such proceedings.

		(d)             The Executive acknowledges that compliance with this
paragraph is necessary to protect the goodwill and other proprietary
interests of the Corporation and that a breach of this paragraph will give
rise to irreparable and continuing injury to the Corporation which may not
be adequately compensable in monetary damages or at law.  Accordingly, the 
Executive agrees that the Corporation, its successors and assigns may
obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threaten breach of the
foregoing provisions of this paragraph, in addition to any other legal
remedies which may be available to it under this Agreement.  The Executive 
further acknowledges that in the event of his termination of employment
with the Corporation his knowledge, experience and capabilities are such
that the Executive can obtain employment in business activities which are
of a different or noncompeting nature than those performed in the course of
employment with the Corporation, and that the enforcement of a remedy
hereunder by way of injunction will not prevent the Executive from earning
a reasonable livelihood.

	10.     Indemnification.  In the event the Executive at any time is a
party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or
completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal,
administrative or investigative (including any action by or in the right of
the Corporation) by reason of, due to or arising out of the fact that he is
then or was previously a director, officer or employee of the Corporation,
or because of any action taken or omitted by the Executive in any of such
capacities, the Corporation agrees to indemnify the Executive against all 
expenses (including reasonable attorney fees at all levels of proceedings)
judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably
incurred by him in connection with such action, suit or proceeding,
provided that the Executive shall not be entitled to indemnification if a 
court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable decision
determines that the Executive acted in bad faith or, in the case of a
criminal matter, knew or should have known his conduct was unlawful.  The
Executive's expenses incurred in defending against any such civil or
criminal action, suit or proceeding shall be paid by the Corporation in
advance of the final disposition of such action, suit or proceeding upon
request of the Executive and the receipt of an unsecured undertaking by the
Executive to repay the amount paid by the Corporation if it is ultimately 
determined by the court in a non-appealable decision that the Executive was
not entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Paragraph 10.  The
indemnification provisions of this Paragraph 10 are non-exclusive and shall
not affect other indemnification rights the Executive has or may have under
Delaware law, the Articles of Incorporation of the Corporation, as amended,
and/or the Corporation's Bylaws from time to time in effect.  The
provisions of this Paragraph 10 are a material inducement to the Executive
in entering into this Agreement and shall survive the expiration or
termination of this Agreement, shall continue in effect after the Executive
ceases to be an officer or a director of the Corporation and shall inure to
the benefit of the heirs, legal representatives and administrators of the
Executive.  If any provision of this Paragraph 10 shall for any reason be
determined to be invalid, the other provisions hereof shall not be affected
and shall remain in full force and effect.

	11.     Return of Property and Records.  On termination of his
employment, the Executive shall deliver all records, notes, data,
memoranda, models, equipment and property of any nature that are in the
Executive's possession or under his control and that are the property of
the Corporation or relate to the employment or to the business of the
Corporation.

	12.     Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement and all rights hereunder
shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Executive's
personal or legal representatives, executors, administrators, heirs,
distributees, devisees, legatees and assignees and by the Corporation's 
successors and assigns.  However, the Executive's obligations as an
employee are personal in nature and, without the consent of the
Corporation, the Executive may not assign any of such obligations to any
other person.

	13.     Notice.  Any notice or other communication hereunder to either
party shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given when
delivered personally or sent prepaid by commercial overnight courier or
mailed by registered mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid to the
Executive at the last residence address of the Executive as reflected in
the Corporation's records, or in the case of the Corporation, to its
principal executive offices in Orlando, Florida or to its registered
office.

	14.     Modification or Waiver.  No provision of this Agreement may be
modified, waived or discharged unless such waiver, modification or
discharge is agreed to in writing, and is signed by the Executive and by
another executive officer of the Corporation.  No waiver by either party 
hereto at any time of any breach by the other party hereto of, or
compliance with, any condition or provision of this Agreement to be
performed by such other party shall be deemed a waiver of 
similar or dissimilar provisions or conditions at the same or at any prior
or subsequent time.

	15.     Entire Agreement.  No agreements or representations, oral or
otherwise, express or implied, with respect to the subject matter hereof,
have been made by either party which are not set forth expressly in this
Agreement.  This Agreement supersedes all prior agreements between the
parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof.

	16.     Attorney Fees.  In any action by either party to enforce this
Agreement or concerning any provision(s) hereof, the prevailing party in
such action shall be entitled to collect in such action from the non-
prevailing party all costs incurred by the prevailing party in connection
with such action, including reasonable attorney fees at the pretrial, trial
and appellate levels.

	17.     Governing Law.  The validity, interpretation, construction and
performance of the Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of
Florida.

	18.     Validity.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision
or provisions of this Agreement shall not affect the validity or
enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement which shall remain
in full force and effect, nor shall the invalidity or unenforceability of a
portion of any provision of this Agreement affect the validity or
enforceability of the balance of such provisions.

	19.     Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more
counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original but all of
which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

	20.     Headings.  The headings contained herein are for reference
purposes only and shall not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation
of the Agreement.

	IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Agreement on the date
