National Cheese Institute to honor Bob Bush for life’s work
Bob Bush, chairman emeritus of Schreiber Foods, Inc., and longtime member of the University Council of Trustees (he’s now emeritus), has been named the recipient of the 2014 National Cheese Institute’s Laureate Award. This award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development and growth of the cheese industry. The award ceremony will take place at the 2014 Dairy Forum, January 26-29, in Palm Desert, Calif. Bush started with Schreiber Foods in 1946, and helped revolutionize the industry with his engineering and technical expertise, which led to the invention of technology that gave the world individually wrapped processed cheese slices. During his tenure with Schreiber Foods, the company grew from one plant and $12 million in sales to 19 plants with $1.5 billion in sales.
