Church Brothers Farms announces new VP of food safety and quality

Church Brothers Farms hired Grace Ho as the company’s new vice president of food safety and quality (FSQ).

“This role is critically important and we wanted to hire the right person that could lead our strong FSQ team that consists of more than 120 knowledgeable employees,” said CEO Brian Church. “Grace is at the forefront of food safety innovation; she has the expertise and leadership we need to guide us in the use of new technologies and processes.”

Ho brings more than 18 years of fresh produce industrial and research experience to Church Brothers/True Leaf Farms.  Most recently she was senior vice president of food safety and quality at the Castellini Group of Companies.  Prior she was director of food safety and technical services for Misionero Vegetables LLC and senior principal scientist at Chiquita Brands International/Fresh Express. She is a lead instructor for Preventive Controls Qualified Individuals (PCQI) and Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP).

Ho said her passion in food microbiology and food safety and expertise in validating and commercializing new technologies resulted in the invention of Fresh Rinse™, a fresh produce wash with the potential for significant food safety benefits. 

Grace holds a Ph.D. in food science and technology from Iowa State University.  Her publications include scientific papers in peer reviewed journals, book chapters and technological reviews.  Her latest publication in 2019 is a book chapter on sanitation standard operating procedures.
