Rich Products lured Tracey Ziener away from Mars to become an executive vice president and chief research & development, food safety quality assurance officer. Ziener, who has more than 28 years of experience with major food brands, also joins Rich’s executive team.
Ziener joins Rich’s after a long career at Mars, where she most recently served as vice president of research & development for the global chocolate business. “With global experience across Europe, the Middle East, Canada and the U.S., she’s worked in all areas of R&D, launching many innovations that can be seen on shelves today around the world,” her new company said.
She’s a U.K. native, with a bachelor’s degree in applied chemistry from Heriot-Watt University before earning a PhD in chemistry from Edinburgh Napier University.
