MANHATTAN, Kan. — Lance Reeve has been named Director of Food Safety Services Innovation at AIB International. He replaces Stephanie Lopez, who was recently promoted to President of AIBI Certification Services.
In his new role, he is part of a global executive leadership team providing research in emerging food safety issues, speaking at key industry events, and contributing to technical publications. On a day-to-day basis, he oversees new product development, facilitates cross-functional team participation, and monitors breaking food safety advancements or failures.
“One of the key functions of the Innovation group is to be on the leading edge of new trends, including regulatory changes, scientific breakthroughs, best practices, and consumer-driven developments,” said Andre Biane, AIB President and CEO. “Our aim is to identify areas where the food and beverage industry needs support, and develop products and services that help them meet their new challenges.”
“In a short period of time Lance has demonstrated strong leadership and set priorities for 2015. He has also cross-functionally aligned priorities and resources within the organization. As
Director, Innovation, his role will also expand to include innovation for Baking and Food Technical Services”, Biane said.
Reeve joined AIB International in 1994 and has held a variety of roles including food safety auditor, project coordinator, director of food defense, and most recently global innovation manager. He is recognized in the global food industry as a leading food defense expert and as an enthusiastic trainer.
The Innovation group began this month with a new product launch. On November 3, the FSMA Awareness Webinar Series was released. These recorded webinars provide viewers from the global food, beverage, and distribution industry with insight into the key elements of FSMA.
“AIB has been flooded with FSMA-related questions in recent months and the industry is scrambling to understand how the new regulations apply to them in expectation of the final rules that are set to release in 2015,” Reeve said. “Our experts have read and interpreted the rules and grouped all of the relevant information into eight easy-to-understand webinars that give viewers a concise interpretation of how the changes apply to them.”

NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Rockwell Labs Ltd introduces Outlast Pro Foaming Agent. The broad-use, proprietary adjuvant can be used for foaming termiticides, insecticides and cleaning products, as well as foam marking.
The formula features a Caution signal word and may be used at rates from 1/2-8 oz per gallon. The target mid-rate for the product is 2 ounce per gallon, which will produce thick, long lasting foam, with most materials. Outlast Pro features a much lower surfactant load compared to competitive products, which leaves less residue in the treated area and the environment, Rockwell Labs reports. Rockwell Labs reports that extensive testing versus competition shows that Outlast Pro Foaming Agent lass 2-3 times longer, sticks to surfaces better and features smaller, tighter bubbles which results in longer lasting foam with less drainage of liquid from the foam. Outlast Pro will is available in one gallon jugs and 16 ounce squeeze-n-measure bottles.
