At a ceremony held in Las Vegas during its 65th annual MeatExpo conference, the National Meat Association awarded its 2011 Supplier of the Year award to Multivac Inc.


The supplier of the year is selected from a list of nominations submitted by NMA general members, firms that have close interaction with suppliers throughout the year. Bob Koch, director of sales for Multivac’s food division, was singled out for his professionalism and long-time service to the meat and poultry industries. “Multivac is deeply honored to receive this distinction from the NMA,” said Jan Erik Kuhlmann, president and CEO of Multivac. “We also appreciate the recognition of Bob Koch, whose energy, integrity and dedication to our customers are a keystone to the success of our food division."
