MCLEAN, Va. — The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) Board of Directors and Executive Committee on Nov. 15 voted to add three new members. Matt Malott, president and CEO of Multivac, Inc. will join the board as assistant treasurer to the executive committee, and Tom Hoffman of MEPACO, Inc. and Patrick McGady of Handtmann, Inc. will sit on the board of directors. Hoffman and McGady were recently elected chairman and vice chairman of the FPSA pet food council, a new committee created in July 2018

“Tom and Patrick’s leadership will help take this already greatly engaged Council to a higher level,” said Jarrod McCarroll, FPSA chairman 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,” McCarroll added. “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.”

The FPSA is a trade association serving suppliers to the global food, beverage, pet food and pharmaceutical industries. The association’s programs and services assist its members in marketing their products and services, and in improving their business practices.
