Todd Sunderhaus from Gold Medal recently earned The Certified Food Scientist (CFS) title through the Institute of Food Technologists. He is part of an elite crowd – fewer than 1,000 food professionals worldwide have received the title.
The credential is a formal certification programme, administered by the International Food Science Certification Commission, which recognises the applied scientific knowledge and skills possessed by food science professionals. CFS credential holders must pass a rigorous exam that tests them on the core professional competencies of a food scientist, and their ability to put that knowledge and skills into practice in a work environment.
Sunderhaus (pictured left) said:
I’m very pleased to be part of the CFS and being awarded such credentials. Being honoured with this highly regarded recognition states how very seriously we are committed to worldwide excellence at Gold Medal.
For more than eight years, Sunderhaus has set concession food trends, inventing new flavours to inspire worldwide cravings.
Dan Kroeger (pictured right), President and CEO of Gold Medal Products Co., said
We don’t just follow trends; we also lead them. Gold Medal stands apart because it looks at the whole concession package. Todd’s CFS recognition is just one more way we are making the latest technology work for you.
