After having developed such a product, how much more do you see shelf life solutions evolve in the future?
For sure the future will evolve with new technologies, packaging solutions and ingredients. Kemin Is always looking ahead to new molecules and innovations. I am sure in the future we will have more solutions to cover the needs of our customers.
We always keep an eye on new trends In the industry and will start new development projects when the time is right.
Yet, science is always changing.
Absolutely. That’s why we attend seminars, conferences and conventions, participate in webinars, read articles on the latest findings and so on. A lot of times new information is shared and we also distribute or discuss this among us, here at Kemin. Learning is a continuous process in this profession, for sure.
And working at Kemin for four years, did your view on the food industry change?
Well, I never knew such a business existed in the segment of natural food safety and shelf life solutions. And I never thought to get in touch with active plant molecules again, like in school. But now I am almost working daily with plant extracts.
And how do you look to the future personally?
More of the same, I guess. I really enjoy working here. In the end, I think we are doing a great job here; we naturally increase the shelf life of food. If you think about it, we’re helping the planet sustainably and it also benefits health in general. So, it’s really satisfying to be a part of this, and I fully support the story and vision of Kemin. Personally, I will continue my work as I do and seek for opportunities to learn and improve. And hopefully I can help develop other innovative products like NaturCEASE Dry.
