Kurt Schneider is passionate about safety - from the processing plant floor to the food that is produced in it - Kurt’s focus is on the safety of everyone along the way. That concern comes from more than thirty years of experience in the food industry, from research and development to start-up leadership. He began his career at General Mills as a chemical engineer, worked at several other billion-dollar companies including Amway and Herbalife, and started his own business helping companies in the food sector with development, manufacturing and quality. Kurt’s other passion, roller coasters, might seem at odds with his dedication to safety, but he says they are “perfectly safe.” He is a member in good standing of the American Coaster Enthusiasts and has been known to travel long distances for the opening of the newest, fastest, highest scream machine. Kurt lives in Minnesota with his wife Stefanie, his two wonderful stepchildren Maddie and Noah, and their dog Sasha and new puppy Murphy.
