The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), Washington, D.C., is organizing a Manufacturing Excellence Conference, Nov. 1-2, concurrently during the Pack Expo 2010 show at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Keynoting the conference will be Alan Wilson, chief executive officer of McCormick & Co. Topics include product safety, sustainability and operational reliability.

Manufacturing excellence in today’s food, beverage and consumer products companies is driven by many factors, including product safety, sustainability, globalization, consumer demands, technology and heightened competition for resources. But exactly how are these drivers impacting manufacturing? Who is driving them deep into the operations of the leading consumer packaged goods manufacturers?

The keynote address, titled, “Manufacturing down through the entire organization – all the way from the top down to the feet on the ground,” will be presented by Alan Wilson, chairman, president and CEO of McCormick & Co., an industry leader who turns vision into action and drives quality and excellence.

Additional speakers from other companies include Del Monte, Hogan Lovells, Keystone Foods, Kraft Foods, Lance, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Siemens and more.

“With a focus on product safety, sustainability and operational integrity -- critical issues for GMA and PMMI members -- we are thrilled to launch the inaugural GMA Manufacturing Excellence Conference at this year’s Pack Expo,” says Pamela Bailey, president and CEO of the GMA.

The GMA is the voice of more than 300 leading food, beverage and consumer product companies that sustain and enhance the quality of life for hundreds of millions of people in the United States and around the globe.
