MOCON, Inc. has recently recruited Mark Theno as the company’s new Food Safety Product Manager.
MOCON benefits from over 40 years of experience in instrumentation manufacturing and testing for the permeation and packaging industry. This latest recruitment substantiates the company’s January announcement to increase its involvement in the food safety sector, when it secured a minority equity interest investment in Luxcel Biosciences Limited.
Robert Demorest, President and CEO of MOCON, remarked, “We are pleased to welcome Mark to the MOCON team. His experience as a strategic sales and marketing professional, as well as an analytical chemist, makes him ideally suited to oversee our new food safety product line.”
Recent recruit, Theno benefits from previous experience working with leading rigid and flexible packaging companies. Theno responded to the announcement, “MOCON has a long history of working with food companies on a global level to help insure package performance objectives are being met. Branching out into food safety products is a natural extension of the company’s core competencies. We want food processors to think of MOCON as a one-stop-shop for both their packaging and safety requirements. Our objective is to create a full line of products and services to support those needs,”
