CHICAGO, IL - A new face has made its debut at Hazel Technologies, a solutions provider known for its shelf-life extending technology, as the company has announced that it has expanded its leadership team. The industry partner revealed that Alex Jimenez has joined the company and will serve as an AgTech Account Executive.
“Hazel Technologies has had huge success in reducing food waste in the fresh produce industry. I am very excited to join Hazel and be part of a company that is making such a positive global impact. I believe there is tremendous opportunity to partner with packer-shippers and hope to further expand Hazel’s solutions with key growers in Mexico and the USA,” said Jimenez.
Jimenez comes to Hazel Tech with several years of supply-side service at IFCO, where he specialized in account management and business development with both growers and retailers. According to a release from Hazel Tech, prior to Jimenez’s position at IFCO, he worked at Kroger as a Buyer and Inspector, focusing on quality improvement programs with growers, warehouse inspectors, and division merchandisers.
In his new role at Hazel Tech, Jimenez will manage the company’s rapidly growing customer base as well as its commercial operations in the Southwest, Mexico, and other central territories.
“Food waste is a global problem. To truly fight food waste, Hazel is expanding outside of the U.S. and building global teams and operations,” said Pat Flynn, CMO. “Alex’s experiences throughout the supply-chain implementing international programs to deliver premium quality will help further integrate Hazel’s innovative technology across North America.”
With more than 160 grower-packer-shippers across 12 countries having already partnered with Hazel Tech to use its proprietary shelf-life extending technology, Jimenez will play a key role in the continued expansion of the technology provider.
