Private label ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries has hired a new platform development manager for its bakery production. Art Posch will lead sales efforts as the company continues to expand its portfolio of clean-label ingredients.

“We are thrilled to have Art Posch join and lead our bakery team,” said Travis Krause, sales director, Kemin Food Technologies – North America. “He brings the perfect mix of ingredient sales, account management and technical knowledge to direct efforts as we grow and cultivate partnerships with our bakery customers. Kemin continues to invest in and increase our range of clean-label, shelf-life solutions to ensure bakers can keep products fresh and extend shelf life, while maintaining the clean-and-simple label that consumers want.”

As platform development manager, Posch will oversee the Kemin Bakery Innovation Center, which invites bakers to virtually experience the latest technologies and capabilities of Kemin Food Technologies from the convenience of their desks.

Prior to joining Kemin, Posch was vice president of business development at MCF Ingredients. He has also held key sales and development roles with companies in the food sector, including General Mills, Bunge and Universal Foods. Posch earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and sales and marketing from Cardinal Stritch University and studied baking science at the American Institute of Baking.

Established in 1961, Des Moines, Iowa-based Kemin is a privately held, family-owned-and-operated company with more than 3,300 global employees and operations in 90 countries, including manufacturing facilities in Belgium, Brazil, China, India, Italy, Russia, San Marino, Singapore, South Africa and the United States.
