Earlier this month at PROCESS EXPO, Ken Hagedorn, Naegele’s VP of Sales and Marketing, hosted a meetup of the FPSA Young Professionals Group. A long-time member of the food processing and packaging industry, Hagedorn offered his perspective on why the industry is a great place to make a career.
Here’s a short excerpt from his talk:
The food industry is constantly changing and that’s what keeps you active. It’s not just making the same thing over and over. That’s why I continue to work in the industry and why I serve on the board of FPSA. If you want to make a career in food, you should be active in the associations. FPSA is one of the most important because we give back. We provide meals and scholarships, we help build bakeries in Africa, and we offer training programs. Ultimately, people are always going to eat, so it’s a stable industry. And it’s definitely not boring.
