Greenfield, IN—Vivolac Culture Corporation has added Michelle Farner to the company’s technical service – sales team.
Farner, a licensed Wisconsin cheese maker, brings over 20 years of experience to her new position. She recently served as UW-River Fall’s Dairy Plant Manager. There, Farner was responsible for all aspects of the dairy processing facility, as well as the implementation and delivery of the dairy processing short courses, and was instrumental in the construction and unveiling of the newly renovated dairy pilot plant and its success.
“Michelle adds a lot of experience to our team,” said Aaron Miller, Director of Sales & Technical Services at Vivolac. “The timing and fit was perfect. Michelle was relocating to North Carolina, and we were looking to add support there because of our growth. Her technical knowledge of Dairy processing will help our customers in their everyday decision making, particularly in Grade A products. With this addition to our very knowledgeable team, we can continue offering products that add value to our customers, both through our ability to supply the dairy markets with quality, US-made products, but also with her years of experience in the dairy industry and her collegiate approach.”
“This is another exciting challenge, and it offers the ability to continue and improve my knowledge in the dairy industry,” Farner said. “I look forward to working with the best dairy support staff in the world and introduce Vivolac solutions wherever we can, and to better assist our customers in cost, quality, and functionality.”
Vivolac Culture Corporation is a leader in starter culture, media and bioprotective cultures. The company is currently expanding its facility, along with an upgrade in automation to better serve its customers. This project is slated to be complete by June 2024.
