Kemin Industries has named Melanie Galloway as president of Kemin Food Technologies, which was formerly known as Kemin Food Ingredients.

Galloway had served as sales director and, most recently, as senior vice president of newly named Kemin Food Technologies.

“Melanie has been instrumental in helping the company achieve double-digit growth through strategic application of Kemin’s unique technology in the food industry,” says Chris Nelson, CEO and president of Kemin Industries, Des Moines, Iowa.

Under Galloway, Kemin Food Technologies will work to identify unique technologies to meet the ever-evolving needs of the food industry.

“The name Kemin Food Technologies better reflects our company’s mission of providing market-driven technologies for the food industry’s toughest problems,” Galloway says. “While Kemin’s technologies are delivered in the form of a product or ingredient, it is the practical application of the ingredient to solve a problem or unmet need that provides value to our customers.”
