Food Safety Net Services Awards 2017 Meat Judging Scholarships

During the 2017 Meat Judging season, Food Safety Net Services generously sponsored $1000 scholarships to the total contest individual at each major AMSA meat judging contest. "Meat Judging has been a passion of mine since I was a freshman in High School. After graduation, I went on to judge and coach at Texas A&M University under the guidance of Albert Usener and Dr. Gary Smith," said John Bellinger, CEO of Food Safety Net Services. Contestants were eligible to receive the scholarship once, if the top individual had already received a scholarship it then went to the next eligible high individual. Twelve individuals from different universities were the recipients of the 2017 scholarships. AMSA shares a strong commitment to developing the next generation of meat scientists which is made possible with the support of our sustaining partners, like Food Safety Net Services.

AMSA and Food Safety Net Services would like to congratulate this year's scholarship recipients winners!
