The Food Processing Suppliers Association held its Fall Board Meeting on Thursday, November 15th, and in addition to its normal business, the FPSA Board of Directors and Executive Committee voted to expand with the addition of three new members. This expansion includes the addition of Matt Malott, President and CEO of Multivac Inc. as Assistant Treasurer to the FPSA Executive Committee and Tom Hoffman of MEPACO Inc. and Patrick McGady of Handtmann Inc., who were elected Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively of the newly formed FPSA Pet Food Council and as such take their seat on the Association’s Board of Directors.

“Tom and Patrick’s leadership will help take this already greatly engaged Council to a higher level” said Jarrod McCarroll, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Weber, Inc. “The creation of the Pet Food Council this year has created an enormous amount of energy within the membership and we look forward to the programs that it will develop in the near future.”

“Expanding the Executive Committee also delivers a new dimension to this group,” said Jarrod McCarroll. “This Committee is responsible for developing the strategy of the Association and by adding one of the leading suppliers to the food and beverage industry, FPSA benefits greatly from Matt’s experience, insights, and market perspective. This will greatly enhance our deliberative process as we look forward to a busy show year and the development of new member programs.”
