The brand’s own Vice President of Technical Services Dorrie Francis has been recognized with the 2022 Technical Service Award from the Association for Dressings and Sauces (ADS).
“It’s an honor to be recognized by ADS and collaborate with an industry organization that remains committed to lifting the entire category of dressings and prepared sauces,” said Francis, noting how she looks forward to continuing her involvement. “I will continue to work hard to be a valued member of ADS.”
Francis has served as Litehouse’s Vice President of Technical Services since 2018, helping the company grow as a leader of quality and innovation in the industry.
According to a press release, Francis is the current Vice Chair of the ADS Executive Technical Board and a member of the ADS Research Subcommittee. She, along with other Subcommittee members, was the recipient of the 2021 ADS Technical Achievement Award. Francis has also helped plan and moderate several ADS Technical Meeting sessions.
“Dorrie has been an integral part of ADS and its technical programs,” commented Patricia Faison, the Director of Regulatory and Technical Affairs for ADS. “Her expertise and contributions are highly valued, and she is very deserving of this award.”
The annual ADS Technical Service Award highlights an individual who demonstrates dedicated service to the organization’s technical programs.
