Industry Leader joins us

We are extremely pleased and privileged to have a leader in global food safety among the MCS Ambassadors (industry members who serve on the Mexico Calidad Suprema’s U.S. Advisory Board).

A few months ago we introduced this gentleman to our program, and he saw its merits… We saw this as a critical benchmark, because Mr. Gale Prince just happens to have headed the food safety program at The Kroger Cos., the #1 supermarket chain in the U.S. 

This is a respected professional with over 40 years experience in food safety in food manufacturing and retail operations.  Considered a pioneer in the food safety industry,  Mr. Prince started his career in 1967 at the Jewel Companies (Chicago).  Also widely known for his involvement in industry and regulatory activities, Mr. Prince has been called “The Dean” of product recalls after having managed several thousand in his career.  

His knowledge of ensuring compliance with food safety regulatory requirements will be of critical benefit as MSQ expands and refines its programs, as well as prepares for pending U.S. food safety legislation (you can read more about him at

Mr. Prince joins other respected industry leaders as MCS Ambassador serving on our Advisory Board during 2010.  He will represent the interests of retailers.  Other MCS Ambassadors representing specific segments or areas, are:

Brian LaForest, Superior Sales, Michigan, representing wholesalers

Martin Ley, Del Campo, representing Arizona importers/distributors

Enrique Diaz, Diazteca, representing Texas importers/distributors

John Pandol, Pandol Bros., representing California importers/distributors

As you can imagine, these industry leaders — working together — will be invaluable to our program, and we thank them for serving!

The MCS Ambassadors will be formally welcomed by MSQ General Manager Liz Quintero at the upcoming Sonora Summit, Hermosillo, Mexico, April 14-15.  

They will also be individually profiled on this site, so please check back soon.   Also look for articles and mentions in key produce industry journals about the Ambassadors and their activities.
