Bio

My principal strength is my ability to develop Technical Management programs that enact effective but pragmatic process control, and my knowledge in all aspects of food technology has afforded me the technical competency to facilitate solutions in any application of resource management. Finally I am familiar with the regulatory requirements for new food ingredients (GRAS and FAP) and supplements (NDIN).
