Gold Medal's Certified Food Scientist is part of an elite crowd; less than 1,000 food professionals worldwide have received this honor. For more than eight years, Todd Sunderhaus has set concession food trends, inventing new flavors that inspire worldwide cravings and appeal to generations around the globe.
Sunderhaus recently earned The Certified Food ScientistSM (CFS) title through the Institute of Food Technologists. The credential is a formal global certification program, administered by the International Food Science Certification Commission, which recognizes the applied scientific knowledge and skills possessed by food science professionals throughout the world. CFS credential holders must pass a rigorous exam that tests them on the core professional competencies of a food scientist, and their ability to put that knowledge and skills into practice in a work environment.
"I'm very pleased to be part of the CFS and being awarded such credentials," Sunderhaus noted. "Being honored with this highly regarded recognition states how very seriously we are committed to worldwide excellence at Gold Medal."
Dan Kroeger, President and CEO of Gold Medal Products Co., agreed, stating the CFS accreditation is a great honor and is another reason Gold Medal is the trusted source for concession equipment and supplies.
"We don't just follow trends; we also lead them," Kroeger said. "Gold Medal stands apart because it looks at the whole concession package. Todd's CFS recognition is just one more way we are making the latest technology work for you."
