ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. -- The Food Institute (FI) here has added ex-GMDC exec Roy White to its staff in the position of v.p., sales, and put him in charge of expanding its membership and programming usage.
White spent nine years at GMDC, an HBC/GM trade association, as v.p. education, in which capacity he managed GMDC's Educational Foundation.

Added Todd, "We are currently expanding into a bevy of new areas, including Webinars, seminars, and technology-based products that the industry will find pertinent, accurate, and timely, and Roy will assist us greatly in that effort."
