"Kerry has evolved our focus to stay ahead of consumer demand. Back 20 years ago it was about convenience foods. Now, people want products that taste good but they can feel better about. They want real food."

CALS Faces

Ellen Morgan

As an undergrad, Ellen Morgan BS’95, MS’97 learned that a food science degree could be her ticket into the brewing industry. After an introductory course, she was hooked. She soon began homebrewing, well before today’s craft beer boom, and her new hobby was the beginning of her track record of staying ahead of trends. If homebrewing was her spark, cheese was fuel on the fire. She earned her master’s degree with a thesis on pinking discoloration, a common defect in orange-colored varieties of processed cheese. It all prepared Ellen for a career with Kerry, a major food ingredient company based in Ireland. Since 1998, she has worked at Kerry’s North American headquarters in Beloit, Wisconsin, where she is now a research and development director. https://bit.ly/2OEmxkg
