The New Jersey Weights and Measures Association recognized Linda M. Doherty, president and CEO of the New Jersey Food Council (NJFC), as Person of the Year at its 103rd Annual Conference on Sept. 5, 2013 in Atlantic City, N.J.
Each year the membership of the New Jersey Weights and Measures Association selects a person who has made a significant impact on weights and measures public policy and collaborates in the spirit of cooperation with agency officials. Doherty was chosen as Person of the Year based on her efforts in working with the Trenton, N.J.-based association to ensure a fair and equitable marketplace and equal protection for consumers.
“This is not only a great honor to me but to the membership of the Food Council and that the NJ Weights and Measures Association recognizes our organization with such high regard,” said Doherty, who has been with NJFC for 20 years and has served as president and CEO for the last nine.
She began her tenure with the state trade group as assistant to the president and held various communication and public affairs roles until assuming her present post in 2003.
The New Jersey Food Council represents N.J. supermarkets, convenience stores, independent grocers and food distribution companies.
