Central Valley IFT


Member Of The Year2017 NCIFT Member of the Year:
Russ Nishikawa

Congratulations to Russ on his selection as NCIFT Member of the Year for 2017!

  • If you read The Hornblower, it’s likely he wrote one of the articles about the most recent event.
  • If you attended The NCIFT Symposium this year, maybe you saw him standing in the parking lot, welcoming and directing you to the correct building!
  • If you attended the CLFP in Sacramento, you saw him manning the NCIFT booth that he brought and set up from home!
  • As a longtime supporter of UC Davis and the student banquet, he may have sponsored you when you were a food science student.
  • If you have received an NCIFT Cruess award, he was on the scholarship and awards committee that reviewed your application.
  • If you attended IFT17 in Las Vegas, you may have seen him volunteering as a greeter or at the hospitality booth.
  • Maybe you were invited to an NCIFT event by this person, since he has been the NCIFT membership secretary for many years.
  • If you ask him (or even if you don’t), he will do the UC Davis Bossy Cow-Cow cheer for you!
    If you have been at any NCIFT event within the last 20 years...
Russ needs no introduction – you will recognize his smiling face and welcoming presence!
