The Member of the Year Award is presented to an AFIA member who exhibits outstanding support in achieving the organization's goals and objectives throughout the year. With the exception of the 83 members of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) working group who received the award in 2014, only 36 individuals have been honored prior to this year.
"Angela has been integral in AFIA's work with FSMA and VFD," said Joel G. Newman, president and chief executive officer of the AFIA. "Her addition to AFIA's qualified training video and her education on VFD and FSMA to our members is invaluable."
Mills is a quality control and regulatory compliance manager at Southern States Cooperative.
"The financial model will be useful to AFIA for many years to come, and it wouldn't have been possible without Mike's vision and the overall support of Elanco," Newman said.
Van Koevering is the director of beef and operations for Elanco Knowledge Solutions.
