This expert developed an innovative beef prefabrication system 30 years ago that is still near "state of the art" in caliber. Although this system was developed for a food retailer, it has served as a model that the fresh meat processing industry has followed during the past 25 years. Additionally, developed a ground beef batching and packaging system that provides hygienic and consistent quality food. The meat industry has needed to make only minor modifications to this system that was implemented 27 years ago. In other projects, this consultant conducted research related to meat product stability and acceptability enhancement and served as an advisor and/or consultant to five trade organizations and several food processing firms while at the Department of Food Science & Technology at Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University. Authored three text and reference books on sanitation; one is now in its 5th edition and has been translated into six languages, as well as having published over 500 scientific papers, manuals, and abstracts and developed 13 videos on HACCP, sanitation, or food processing and several short courses related to HACCP, sanitation, and meat processing. Finally, our expert has delivered more than 500 oral presentations in 20 different countries and have received nine professional awards, including three that are international in scope.
