Our good friends at the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) have some exciting news to share! The organization recently announced that it has welcomed Travis Cano as its new Manager of Processor Partnerships.
Cano joins CMAB with 16 years of experience at the Safeway/Albertsons Companies, where he held a wide range of leadership positions including Grocery Procurement Manager, Business Ventures Manager, Supply Chain Strategies Manager, and Director of E-Commerce Merchandising, Procurement, and Labor Planning. He most recently held the position of Director of Pay Operations at Shipt, a grocery delivery service.
In these roles, Cano led company initiatives to drive customer loyalty, sales, and profit through quality improvement, innovation, cost savings, and portfolio optimization, a press release stated.
Cano holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Communication from San Diego State University.
“Travis has a proven track record of supply chain operations such as forecasting, demand, and logistics. He is also experienced in e-commerce merchandising, procurement, and labor planning, which will add a different element of support for our processors,” said John Talbot, Chief Executive Officer.
The press release also noted that California is the nation’s leading milk producer, and makes more butter, ice cream, and nonfat dry milk than any other state. California is the second-largest producer of cheese and yogurt. California milk and dairy foods can be identified by the Real California Milk seal, which certifies they are made with milk from the state’s dairy farm families who lead the nation in sustainable farming practices.
Congratulations to Travis Cano!
