Dr. Joe Sebranek, a key member of the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) Scientific Advisory Council (SAC), was recently inducted into the Meat Industry Hall of Fame. With meat products constituting a significant portion of frozen and refrigerated food moving through the cold chain, Sebranek’s 15 years of participation on the SAC has been vital, providing expertise in meat science, and more specifically, meat processing and preservation technology, to the temperature-controlled logistics industry.
Sebranek’s responsibilities at Iowa State in teaching and research include a partial appointment in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition in addition to his primary appointment in the Department of Animal Science (where the Meat Science program is housed).
He has served as an official judge for state and national processed meat product competitions, has been President of the American Meat Science Association and Chair of the Muscle Foods Division of the Institute of Food Technologists, and was this year named the Charles F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor in Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State.
Sebranek was inducted into the Meat Industry Hall of Fame during an induction ceremony gala that took place on January 31, 2017 during the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE17).
