“We are proud to support AMSA’s mission to further food science in the meat industry and continue to develop the next generation of food industry professionals,” said Jarrod McCarroll, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Weber, Inc. “This competition brings out years of training and highlights the best our university meat science programs have to offer. We look forward to the results of their hard work later this month and welcoming the top three winners at PROCESS EXPO in October, where our audience will be eager to hear what they have to share.”

“The role of students is expanding significantly at PROCESS EXPO and this is just one example,” said David Seckman, President & CEO of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA). “This year’s show will feature round table sessions, meet-ups and mock interviews with the FPSA Young Professionals Group who have expressed an interest in mentoring students and other young people to help them navigate this early stage in their career and better understand the opportunities in front of them.”
