Mar 7, 2017Rice Fruit hires facility food safety manager
Rice Fruit Company welcomes Alexandra (Lex) Roberts as the newest addition to its staff. Roberts will work as facility food safety manager, a new position created to work in partnership with the Grower Relations and Food Safety Manager post occupied by H. Lee Showalter.
The facility food safety manager plans and monitors food safety protocols throughout Rice Fruit Company’s storage and packing facilities. Previously, Showalter managed the comprehensive food safety chain from farm through facility. With the addition of Roberts in this new position, the company expects to continue its accomplishments in the field of food safety by expanding, sharpening and enhancing the strategies used within the packing facility.
Roberts joins Rice Fruit with four years of experience in food safety and quality assurance, most recently as food safety/QA manager at Apeeling Fruit. Before that, she practiced law for six years with MidPenn Legal Services.
