A focus on food quality and safety, combined with an emphasis on employee training, teamwork, and effective implementation of new technologies, are just some of the reasons behind the selection of Hans Kissle, a manufacturer of fresh prepared foods, deli salads, and meats in Haverhill, Mass., to receive the 11th annual Food Quality Award.
Sponsored by DuPont Qualicon, the award was presented April 18 during a reception at the Food Safety Summit Expo and Conference in Washington, D.C.
“We’re delighted that the judges selected Hans Kissle for this year’s Food Quality Award,” said Megan DeStefano, global marketing manager for DuPont Qualicon. “The innovations and value for food safety and quality throughout the Hans Kissle organization were found to be outstanding. And we’re very pleased to sponsor this annual award, which recognizes the critical role of food processors in protecting the food supply.”
“Our team takes great pride in the products we produce,” said Robin L. Beane, Hans Kissle’s director of operations, in accepting the award. “Therefore, to be recognized with this prestigious award authenticates the values and high standards we embrace and adhere to as a company every day.”
