June 2015 Issue
Food Processing's June cover story is one of our more fun features of each year. We let you elect three R&D Teams of the Year, and while it's educational to read how big companies (like Bolthouse Foods) are developing products, and interesting to learn how medium-size processors (like Ruiz Foods) are ascending, it's just plain fun to hear the excitement at start-ups (like Among Friends Baking Mixes).
Our June issue also has its usual panoply of stories on product development (the "free-from" movement) and plant operations (developing a culture of food safety). Plus, our Wellness Foods section explores the current battle in Washington over the school lunch program.
