Hans Kissle, a manufacturer of prepared foods, salads, and desserts, has been named the winner of the 11th annual Food Quality Award. This annual award, which recognizes companies for exceptional contributions to food safety and customer satisfaction with a positive impact on business results, will be presented April 18 at a special reception sponsored by DuPont Qualicon during the Food Safety Summit Expo and Conference at the Washington, D.C., Convention Center.
A panel of industry judges concluded that the Hans Kissle submission was most impressive in terms of efforts to enhance food quality and safety by investing in technology and training, adhering to a HACCP plan, and using independent auditors.
“It is a high honor to receive the 11th Annual Food Quality Award,” said Robin Beane, director of operations for Hans Kissle. “Receiving this prestigious award is magnificent but, more importantly, it validates the hard work and commitment we make every day to maintain the highest level of food safety and quality for our customers, ensuring them the optimum eating experience every time they purchase our product.”
The Food Safety Summit Expo and Conference runs from April 17-19. The award reception on April 18, which is open to all registered attendees, begins at 5:45 p.m. with light food and cocktails, followed by a keynote presentation from Cloeann Durham, corporate quality assurance manager for Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated, and the award presentation.
As part of the DuPont Nutrition and Health portfolio of innovative products for the food industry, award sponsor DuPont Qualicon provides science-based diagnostic systems that help reduce the impact of pathogens and other unwelcome organisms in food.
