Nearly 100 applications were submitted to the independent selection committee.
“Once again we have had outstanding participation from our members in this very important program,” remarked Scott Scriven, vice president, slicing business unit, Provisur Technologies and chairman of the Foundation of the Food Processing Suppliers Association. “I would like to congratulate the ten winners, and also thank all those who applied.
