New ABA Chairman Rich Scalise Discusses Issues in the Baking Industry

MEK_1061New ABA Chairman Rich Scalise, Heathside Food Solutions, sat down recently with Lauren Hartman of Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery Magazine to discuss his top priorities for 2014 and beyond. According to Scalise, he plans to focus on future leadership development, industry education and membership growth.

“The ABA needs full industry support if it is to continue to represent the needs and issues of the baking industry before Congress and government leaders that directly impact our bottom line.

ABA provides a unified voice for concerns that keep [our] products affordable and available to everyone. Policies that jeopardize this don’t just turn an industry, they hurt real people everywhere. The ABA plays a vital role in keeping our policymakers informed and in shaping legislation that is good for our industry and good for consumers.”
